Trump tells veterans Hillary Clinton can’t be trusted to overhaul VA

by Seth McLaughlin - The Washington Times  |  published on July 26, 2016

Donald Trump vowed Tuesday to fire those responsible for the problems that have plagued the Department of Veterans Affairs and to give military veterans access to private health care providers, warning that “crooked Hillary Clinton” seems bent on sweeping the entire controversy “under the rug.”

Mr. Trump told the Veterans of Foreign Wars gathered in Charlotte, North Carolina, for the group’s 117th annual convention that Mrs. Clinton has downplayed the problems at the VA and that her track record shows she is not ready to fix them.

“She recently said of the VA scandal that is it not as widespread as it is purported to be,” Mr. Trump said. “It is like she is trying to sweep it under the rug, which by the way politicians have done for years and years and years. It is going to be four more years of the same if she ever got in. But that’s not going to happen.”

“We know how she takes care of the veterans, just look at her invasion of Libya and handling of Benghazi — a disaster,” he said. “Or look at her emails, which put Americans entire national security at risk.”

Mrs. Clinton spoke before the group on Monday and is set to accept the Democratic nomination for president later this week at her party’s convention in Philadelphia.

    HITLER HILLARY needs to go to the VA to make promises that she will not get, not the VFW. What a stupid idiot.

    Personally, I think the only worse than Hillary as POTUS is being married to that fetid pile of white trash. She cannot be trusted with anything, and she has even out-shown Obama when it comes to lying.How anyone in their right mind can vote for that vile incompetent liar is beyond comprehension.

    Just saying the VA problem is not as bad as it seems should tell all vets that she is not going to do anything about it and all they have to do is look at the Vets that have posted complaints about the service they have been getting when the men and women who have served their country should be getting first class treatment with no delays or excuses in recognition of their service



    of course she can’t be trusted to do anything that would better AMERICA,she gets in and all the vets are going to soon be in their graves because she will kill them all off just like she wants to KILL AMERICA.

    Please help me, how can anyone even consider HRC for the highest office in the land when so many things she has been involved with and resulted in peoples deaths, what appears to be criminal activity, questionable financial gains, federal investigations, arrogance, a records of lies, no actual successful accomplishments other than holding a title of a position, and on top of that she is having major health problems. Why is she even being considered for anything but an old woman retirement?

      Because of voter dumbness and the bunch looking for free handouts from the demounts. I wouldn’t vote for her for dog catcher. I’m sorry to say that I have lost a couple friends over her dumbass. Don’t think they were much for friends in first place.

    Hillary Clinton can’t be trusted on anything. She is an addict to committing crime. Every time she compounds her problems because she is used to violate the decency of the rules of ethics and rule of law. For her own good, the only way to treat her is to put her on an orange jumpsuit for about 5 to 10 years. Otherwise, she thinks what she is doing is the norms of standards. She does not know the right from the wrong because she is already addicted to doing such horrible acts.
    And to put her at the WH, are you out of your minds too?

    Trump and the republiCONs will destroy the VA, the same as they will Social Security and Medicare, and everything else that does not benefit the wealthy.


      It’s already destroyed! Where have you been lately. Our vets deserve much better! Obamacare doesn’t work either and the Canadian health care sucks. They ration healthcare.

    • 1947goldenjet

      Seriously. Medicare and Medicaid has already been raped to provide the funding for Obamacare.

      Stop your BS. Trump for President.

    • Rodney Steward

      Do U still build your own mud hut and believe Obama was born in America! You don’t know anything about the VA, or Trump, but EVERYBODY knows about the SLUT!!
