Donald Trump gave the U.S. military one order that left the troops speechless
Donald Trump ran for President on a promise to rebuild America’s military and honor the nation’s veterans.
Both the military and the veterans were neglected by former President Barack Obama.
And Donald Trump gave the U.S. military one order that left the troops speechless.
Donald Trump fulfilled his promise to rebuild America’s military by signing military budgets that boosted spending levels to combat threats like China and Islamic terrorism.
Now, the President made good on his word to America’s veterans by announcing at the AMVETS convention in Kentucky that he signed a memorandum cancelling the student loan debt for thousands of permanently injured veterans.
Trump said the memorandum would effectively cancel the federal student debts of thousands of wounded American veterans.
According to the White House, the memorandum orders Secretaries of Education and Veterans Affairs to expedite totally and permanently that disabled veterans have their Federal student loan debt discharged with minimal burdens.
Trump also touted his administration’s accomplishments for America’s military veterans.
“After years of neglect, we are fixing the heartbreaking failures from the last Administration at the Department of Veterans Affairs,” he said. “America must never abandon our heroes in their hour of need.”
He said that wait times in Veterans Affairs hospitals had been slashed by 33 percent, and touted more VA accountability, allowing bad employees to get fired.
President Trump also noted that he signed into law the VA Accountability Act that cut wait times at VA hospitals by one third.
The Obama years were a dark time for America’s military and the nation’s veterans.
That cloud lifted when Donald Trump was elected.
And since his first day in office the President worked to make good on his promise to always take care of America’s veterans.
