President Donald Trump promised Saturday to “completely eradicate veterans’ homelessness in America” if elected to a second term in 2024.
During a Veterans Day rally in New Hampshire, Trump maintained that veterans were being “backstabbed” and betrayed, accusing the Biden administration of reinstating “5,000 VA employees” that the Trump White House had fired, or giving those employees “full BACKPAY at a cost of up to $200 million dollars.”
Trump then pledged that if elected, he would “ask Congress to take every penny of that money and finally build a brand new state-of-the-art full-service VA hospital” in New Hampshire.
“I will make it a personal mission to completely eradicate veterans’ homelessness in America,” said Trump.
“In the past three years, Biden has spent over $1 billion dollars to put up illegal aliens in hotels—meanwhile, we have 33,000 homeless American veterans,” said Trump.
He continued, “On day one, I will sign an executive order to cut off Biden’s spigot of money for the shelter and transport of illegal aliens, and we will redirect a portion of the savings to provide shelter and treatment for our own homeless veterans.”
Trump concluded, “Crooked Joe puts bureaucrats first and illegal aliens first—I will put VETERANS FIRST, and AMERICA FIRST every single time.”
