US President Donald Trump is known for his very public gaffes. From time now and time again, Trump’s quirky, odd one-liners have hit headlines worldwide. On Wednesday, Trump did it again, this time changing the human anatomy! While signing the executive order aimed at transforming kidney care for nearly 40 million Americans, Trump made a bizarre statement that left everyone bewildered. "Today we are taking groundbreaking action to bring new hope to millions of Americans suffering from kidney disease," Trump said at the beginning. So far so good. "So many things don't get done in government, but now we are getting them done"  he went on to say. It was still better till now. Then came the remark that can be called pure gold! “You’ve worked so hard on the kidney. Very special. The kidney has a very special place in the heart. It’s an incredible thing,” Trump said with a beatific smile on his face. You don’t believe us? Watch the video:

About 30 million American adults have chronic kidney disease, costing Medicare a staggering $113 billion. More than 700,000 people have end-stage renal disease, meaning their kidneys have failed, and require either a transplant or dialysis to survive. Only about a third received specialized kidney care before they got so sick.More than 94,000 of the 113,000 people on the national organ waiting list need a kidney. Last year, there were 21,167 kidney transplants. A fraction - 6,442 - were from living donors, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing, which oversees the nation's transplant system.
