Fulfilling another HUGE campaign promise, Trump has taken on the Dept. of Veteran’s Affairs and his work is already “ahead of schedule”!
On time and under budget, that’s the Trump way! And now he’s putting that skill to work for the American people!
He promised during the campaign that he would totally fix the VA and it looks like he’s got a big jump start on that work already! I love this President so much!
Here’s more, from the Washington Examiner:
President Trump said Friday that his administration’s plan to reform the Department of Veterans Affairs is “ahead of schedule” and announced to a group of veterans’ service organizations that he would conduct a meeting with his veterans advisory board later in the evening at Mar-a-Lago.
“During my campaign, I outlined a detailed plan for reforming veterans care throughout the country,” Trump said before a listening session with veterans advocates at the White House. “It’s moving, I think I can say honestly, ahead of schedule.”
“A lot of improvements are being made,” Trump said.
Since Trump’s pick for VA secretary, David Shulkin, was confirmed unanimously by the Senate in February, the administration has remained largely silent on its progress toward implementing Trump’s 10-point plan for VA reform.
Trump’s plan included a hiring surge of mental health professionals and the creation of a direct line to the White House that veterans could call to log complaints about the VA’s performance.
“It’s going to change, and under my administration it will change,” Trump said of the “horrible stories” that have trickled out of the VA over the past few years.
