He started dialysis treatment and needed a new kidney.

The executive order reformed the kidney treatment industry.
CNBC reported (July 2019):
President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order designed to reform the nation’s kidney treatment industry and save the U.S. government millions of dollars, administration officials said.
The executive order would create new payment models to encourage more kidney transplants and provide incentives to receive dialysis treatment at home instead of at expensive treatment centers, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said in a call with reporters.
The administration is pushing for the development of artificial kidneys and early diagnosis of kidney disease. Federal health officials aim to double the number of available kidneys, including artificial ones, by 2030, Azar said. Under the order, the administration says it will streamline and speed up the kidney matching process to help increase transplants.
“Today, we are taking incredible action to bring new hope to the millions of Americans suffering from kidney disease,” Trump said in a speech in Washington on Wednesday morning. “In a few moments, I will sign an executive order that takes major steps to increase the supply of available kidney transplants.”
After leaving the church on Christmas Day 2019, Robinson received good news – he would get a new kidney.
Robinson told the story to Donald Trump in a recent interview.
In my recent interview with President Trump. I was excited to be alive, which is an all-pervading feeling for me these days. The president picked up on this immediately and radiated kindness throughout.
As my interview with President Trump began, I blurted out, “I want to thank you, President Trump, for saving me and thousands of other people.”
He was surprised that the writer he was talking to was himself a kidney patient. “Oh! Is that true? Are you someone you worked with? “
“President Trump,” I began emotionally, “I had been on dialysis for two years when you signed your order, and six months later, on Christmas Day 2019, I got a call as I was walking out of church. I have a kidney. I got that kidney from the new hepatitis-C clinical trial program. , that really kicked into high gear with your command.
In a very concerned way, President Trump asked, “And how about that?” He asked.
“Oh, it’s a whole new world for me, Mr. President.”
What a wonderful story!
