The veterans in America have sadly, been treated terribly in the last 8 years under the Obama administration. These men and women that have sacrificed their blood, sweat, and tears to keep America safe have been horribly disrespected. Instead of America’s heroes being taken care of they have often been forgotten by the country they have served.
When Obama was elected in 2008, he promised that our veterans would receive 21st Century care. That promise never came to fruition, not even close. In 2014, the horrible truth was finally revealed concerning the actual care our veterans were receiving.
At least 293 veterans had passed away after being put on wait lists to be seen by a doctor. However, despite the atrocious death count the VA distributed over $140 million dollars in bonuses. Of course, Obama said he would handle this, but nothing was done, as usual.
During Trump’s presidential campaign, he promised that under his leadership, our veterans would receive the care they deserved. And, true to form Trump is keeping his word with his latest executive order that will have you cheering.
On Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order creating an office of accountability and whistle-blower protection at the Department of Veteran Affairs.This office will ensure that our veterans never have to suffer again.
President Trump said this in a press conference on Thursday.
