Just curious, any of you Trump-bots have any knowledge to share of him ever expressing concern for and attempting to aid veterans until it became a political issue for him?

She's probably got that in her purse . . . . downpayment from NBC.

Yup and the biggest group of people she screws over, is us Chumps, and the ones who buy the crap she trys to sell them. She cares only about her pockets, not the little guy, not the diminishing middle class.

Interesting that the media seems far more interested in Trump raising money for veterans than they do in Hillary's emails or Benghazi.

Trump has already received more vetting by the media in 6 months than Obama has in nearly a decade.

I have to ask how he might handle delicate diplomatic situations, although his ardent followers call it political correctness, diplomacy is expected by serious world leaders. To be taken seriously, you have to behave seriously. Nobody wants to destroy the oligarchy we're under more than me, but Trump's behavior is really disquieting.
That is the job of the Sec of State. The president just shows up for the signing ceremony and photo-op.

Considering that the fact that a list of Veterans were considered not worth the effort to provide services to and were left to die, with Hillary saying it wasn't that big of deal............ And, as a veteran and following what the VA Healthcare is and does, she doesn't have a clue.

Veterans prefer Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton by 9 points: survey - Washington Times

Those that are active duty at this time prefer Trump also: Military Times survey: Troops prefer Trump to Clinton by a huge margin Guess they don't care to be the doormat for the world anymore than any other patriotic citizen.

Trump had until the end of the year to disburse the money.. PERIOD

Didnt matter if it was 5 or 10 months..

Well that's good to know, so if Trump is our next president, no matter how inept he might be as long as he chooses a good Secretary of State, we've got nothing to worry about. Excellent!
