BREAKING: Trump Takes A SCALPEL To The VA…He Finally Does What Obama Wouldn’t!
One of the main promises of Trump during his presidential campaign was looking after veterans. These men and women put their life on the line just to protect us, but were shockingly neglected by the system when they needed help the most. This has gone on for far too long, and Trump has vowed to put an end to it.
President Donald Trump is looking to make changes to how the VA functions, and has ensured the public that the veterans will get proper care. As soon as he stepped into his new office, Trump has started cleaning the corruption in the agency. Here’s a report by The Daily Caller:
“Two notoriously corrupt employees in Puerto Rico were fired this week, indicating that more may be on the way.
One is the hospital’s CEO, DeWayne Hamlin, who offered an employee $305,000 to quit after she played a role in exposing his drug arrest. Mr. DeWayne Hamlin was removed from federal service effective January 20, 2017”–inauguration day–the VA said.
The other person fired recently is a woman who took part in an armed robbery, then kept her job while she was in jail, and continued to work in the hospital’s security office while wearing an ankle bracelet.
The amount of incompetence and corruption that has been going on in the VA is simply unacceptable. The fact that these kinds of things were going on–while our former President did nothing–cannot be excused.
Under former Secretary of Veterans Affairs Bob McDonald, the agency ignored years of evidence about shoddy work ethic, theft and whistleblower retaliation. The VA finally began a months-long investigative proceeding last year, after an outside agency, the Office of Special Counsel, prodded VA leadership.”
This agency is responsible for our veterans, people who we owe a lot. The government looked the other way when they needed help in the past, but that’ll change under Trump. He will indeed make America great again!
