President Trump did more for Veterans than any administration in history!
President Trump reformed the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to improve care, choice, and employee accountability. Over 10,000 federal workers who failed to give our warriors the quality and timely care they so richly deserve were fired.
President Trump approved the VA Choice and VA MISSION Acts to give our heroes the permanent choice to see their local doctor and receive care at non-VA facilities when they live far away, the wait is too long, or it is not in their best medical interest. This change allowed more than 2.4 million veterans to access over 725,000 private health care providers.
President Trump’s commitment to our Veterans resulted in 3 in 4 veterans reporting improvements at their local VA, including shorter wait times and expanded community care options, leading to better healthcare outcomes and record VA satisfaction.
President Trump decreased veteran homelessness, and education benefits, and achieved record-low veteran unemployment. President Trump’s administration placed nearly 40,000 homeless veterans into employment through the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program.
President Trump signed legislation that created unparalleled opportunities for our brave soldiers after their service. President Trump’s Forever G.I. Bill allowed veterans to pursue education at any point in their lives and his administration’s vast expansion of job training resulted in over half a million veterans finding jobs. President Trump also signed legislation ensuring no reduction of VA education benefits under the GI Bill for online distance learning.
During President Trump’s Administration, veterans’ unemployment reached an all-time low. Over 600,000 veterans were placed into employment through American Job Center services. Over 500,000 transitioning service members were enrolled in over 20,000 Department of Labor employment workshops.
President Trump formed the PREVENTS Task Force to fight the tragedy of Veteran suicide as well as securing $9.5 billion for mental health services in 2020. Under President Trump the VA offered same-day emergency mental health care at every VA medical facility.
