Donald Trump, “Our Vets need the VA to be there for them and their families”
Monday, America’s “law and order candidate,” Republican Donald Trump pledged to crack down on Department of Veterans Affairs employees who fail to serve our Veterans.
Donald Trump’s 10-pt plan aims to expand programs that allow US Veterans to seek government-funded private medical care.
“We made a promise to these heroes. You defend America, and America will defend you,” Donald Trump said, adding he will fire or discipline VA employees who “fail our veterans” or breach the public trust.
“Veterans should be guaranteed the right to choose their doctor and clinics, whether at a VA facility or at a private medical center,” he said.
Donald Trump also addressed the killing of 5 police officers in Dallas during a protest against a pair of recent police shootings.
“America’s police and law enforcement personnel are what separates civilization from total chaos – and the destruction of our country as we know it,” he said. “It is time for the hostility against our police, and against all members of law enforcement, to end – and to end right now.”
He said he will support police, and fighting crime in the nation’s inner cities.
Helping US Vets is a Key element of Donald Trump’s campaign. So, expect him hammer the Obama Admin for the 2014 Veterans Affairs scandal over long wait times for Veterans seeking medical care and falsified records by VA employees to cover up the delays.
He promised to modernize the system, minimize wait times for patients and improve care.
The current state of the Department of Veterans Affairs is absolutely unacceptable, the guiding principle of The Trump Plan is ensuring Veterans have convenient access to the best quality care.
Under the plan he unveiled then, eligible veterans would be able to bring their veterans’ identification cards to any private doctor or facility that accepts Medicare and be able to receive immediate treatment. The change, he argued, would help improve wait times and services by adding competition.
Donald Trump vowed to implement policies that allow Vets to use any doctor they choose, including those outside VA centers.
“Veterans should be guaranteed the right to choose their doctor and clinics, whether at a VA facility or at a private medical centers,” he said.
Donald Trump’s 10 steps will include overhauling current visa programs “to ensure American Veterans are in the front, not back, of the line.” He will also pledge to discipline federal workers who abuse the system and appoint a commission to investigate the VA and present its findings to Congress.
“Our veterans need the VA to be there for them and their families,” Donald Trump said.
