"Mean Girls" actress Lindsay Lohan defended President Donald Trump over Twitter, writing that people need to stop "bullying" him.
Lohan, 31, responded to a tweet showing a screenshot of a Breitbart article that quotes Trump saying he would be "delighted" to assist British baby Charlie Gard.
“THIS IS our president," she tweeted July 3, reports People. "Stop #bullying him & start trusting him. Thank you personally for supporting #THEUSA."
Charlie Gard is a terminally ill baby who has MDDS, a rare mitochondrial disorder that prevents him from moving, seeing or breathing without aid. European courts have ruled that continuing the child's treatment could cause "significant harm," and ruled to take him off life support in accordance with his doctors' medical opinion, according to NPR.

Charlie's parents have appealed the ruling and raised $2 million to bring their son to a U.S. hospital where he can undergo experimental treatments. On July 3, Trump tweeted his support of the Gard family, offering to help in any way possible.
"If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so," Trump wrote.
The "Parent Trap" actress expressed her support of Trump's position over Twitter, even defending him when another Twitter user called the president a "fool."

"[Donald Trump, Melania Trump, and Donald Trump Jr.] are kind people," she wrote. "As An American, why speak poorly of anyone?"
In a March 2016 interview, Lohan confirmed she was not a Trump supporter but that she believed people shouldn't continue to deride him, according to The Hill.
"People are too mean towards Trump," she said in an interview. "I like Donald as a person, but I’m a Hillary Clinton fan."
The president hasn't had as favorable things to say of Lohan, according to People. In 2004, Trump said in an interview on "The Howard Stern Show" that the then-18-year-old was "deeply troubled."
When asked if he would have sex with Lohan, Trump responded, "She’s probably deeply troubled and therefore great in bed. How come the deeply troubled women, you know, deeply, deeply troubled, they’re always the best in bed?"
Years later, when Trump's interview resurfaced during the presidential campaign, Lohan's representative Hunter Frederick issued a statement on the actress's behalf.
"Right now, Lindsay is choosing to focus on the positive things happening in her life and has decided to disregard the comments made about her by Presidential nominee Donald Trump," he wrote. "She is focusing on helping children around the world in need and that’s where her passion is.”
