A family friend of little Charlie Gard joined Nigel Farage on his LBC radio show Thursday in a final attempt to save the terminally ill 10-month-old baby.
As the state-approved “doomsday clock” moved closer to midnight for Charlie, Maria Tatalovic pleaded for President Trump to intervene and keep the baby alive.
“President Trump, I never thought I would actually direct a message to you but please save this baby,” Maria said. “We just need him to be released, transferred and receive treatment which will be paid for. We’re not asking for anyone to treat [Charlie] who doesn’t want to.”
“It’s about choice, it’s about parental rights, it’s about human rights and it’s about the right to life for this baby who deserves it,” she added.
Charlie, who suffers from a rare genetic condition, became a household name after British judges ruled that his life support machine should be turned off.
President Donald Trump earlier this week tweeted that he would be “delighted” to help.
If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so.

On Tuesday, a Vatican-owned pediatric hospital in Rome offered to take Charlie into its care, but the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London said that, for legal reasons, transferring Charlie to their care “would be impossible.”
