Well, a Republican donor is better than none.

Since all men are pigs, this should work out quite well for him!

OK, but it takes a Democrat to need a Republican to save his ass.

Porcine valves have been used in valve replacement in heart surgery for years,,so this operation does not seem too far fetched

Fake news! Trump would never be an organ donor!

They have a very similar vascular system. The army uses live pigs to imitate war injuries, having medics work on them as they bleed out. And yes, as R6 mentioned, they've been using pig parts for decades in people. My uncle had a quadruple bypass 15 yrs ago and they used pig parts.

Ronnie Jackson was right, Trump will live forever since he won't have the problem of his body rejecting the pig heart.

Doesn't Dick Cheney have a pig heart?

I heard that his body rejected all human hearts.

R18 - Wrong! It was pig knuckles and ham hocks stitched together. A very special episode of "Touched by a Porker"

Is it okay for a Muslim or a Jewish patient to get a pig heart?

He's a real prince...

The American patient who received a genetically modified pig’s heart in a medical first is a violent criminal who paralysed a man by stabbing him seven times, it has emerged.

David Bennett Sr, who lives in Maryland, made headlines around the world this week when it was announced that he had undergone a groundbreaking procedure with profound implications for organ waiting lists. Bennett, 57, was said to be recovering well.

It has now been revealed that Bennett spent several years in prison after being convicted in 1988 of stabbing Edward Shumaker. The victim spent 19 years using a wheelchair, had a stroke in 2005 and died two years later at the age of 40, according to The Washington Post. His family said that the heart should have gone to a “deserving recipient”.

Leslie Shumaker Downey, his older sister, said: “Ed suffered. The devastation and the trauma, for years and years, that my family had to deal with.”

She said that after Bennett was released from prison he “went on and lived a good life. Now he gets a second chance with a new heart — but I wish, in my opinion, it had gone to a deserving recipient.”

Bennett is said to have attacked Shumaker after spotting him chatting to his wife at a bar. He was arrested following a high-speed chase, the newspaper said, and charged with intent to murder. He was acquitted of the more serious charge but found guilty of battery and carrying a concealed weapon, and sentenced to ten years in prison. Downey believes that Bennett served about five years.

News of Bennett’s criminal past has led to a debate about the ethics of who receives life-saving procedures. More than 106,000 Americans are waiting for an organ transplant and 17 people die each day without receiving what they need, according to the Health Resources & Services Administration.
