Donald Trump just did something for an injured war veteran that is making Americans everywhere love him even more!
Todd is a wounded veteran who served his country for 21 years as he fought with the 101st Airborne. On Tuesday, he came face-to-face with Trump at an event in Sioux City, Iowa, and the GOP frontrunner immediately thanked him for his service.
“These are our greatest people. The wounded warriors. These are the greatest. The best,” Trump said as he left the podium to greet Todd and his family.
“With the current administration, warrior care is lacking to say the least…especially post-service,” Todd told Trump, adding that he does not work and his wife, April, was his caregiver. “What will the Trump administration do better than the Obama administration?”
“Is the VA not doing the job?” Trump asked, according to Western Journalism.
April stepped in and said her husband has been trying to enroll in a VA program, but he can’t get an appointment. Outraged, Trump had Todd give him his information so that he could personally fight for his cause.
“I am going to put pressure on the VA like you won’t believe,” Trump said to major applause from the crowd. “Let’s see if we can get this.”
“As president, I can guarantee it. As Trump I can say, ‘I’ll probably be able to pull it off anyway.’” he told the family as the crowd cheered. “Because they know it won’t stop. It’ll be easier to take Todd and just say ‘Look, Todd, we’re gonna work with you.'”
Trump then slammed the VA for their “terrible” shortcomings.
“The waits now are worse than they’ve ever been,” he said. “Thousands of people dying, waiting for a doctor.”
Trump eventually revealed his solution for problems with the VA: he promised that he will allow veterans who need care to be treated at local hospitals, which will cost less and improve the quality of their care.
“We’re going to take care of our vets,” he concluded. “We’re going to take care of the VA.”
THIS is why we love Trump!
