Wounded veteran shares emotional moment with Donald Trump at Iowa rally.
A veteran who served with the 101st Airborne for 21 years shared an emotionally powerful moment with Donald Trump at an Iowa rally on 10/28.
Trump took questions from his supporters in Sioux City when Todd, a wounded warrior, asked about VA reforms.
“These are our greatest people. The wounded warriors. These are the greatest. The best,” Trump said. He then left the podium to speak with Todd face-to-face.
“With the current administration, warrior care is lacking to say the least…especially post-service,” Todd asked. “What will the Trump administration do better than the Obama administration?”
Todd’s wife April explained that her husband couldn’t get an appointment to enroll at a new VA program in their hometown.
“I am going to put pressure on the VA like you won’t believe,” Trump responded. “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.’”
Trump went on to discuss the failures of the FA and its inability to take care of wounded veterans who gave everything for their country.
Barack Obama would probably care more about these issues if the veterans were Muslim.
