(Washington, DC) — [Whitehouse.gov] EDUCATING OUR VETERANS: President Donald J. Trump is ensuring our veterans receive the student loan and educational benefits to which they are entitled and deserve. (Image: via Raw Story)

• Today, President Trump signed a presidential memorandum that ensures our totally and permanently disabled veterans obtain the Federal student loan debt discharges they are entitled.

• Only half of the roughly 50,000 disabled veterans who are qualified to have their Federal student loan discharged have received this entitled benefit.

• The process by which our disabled veterans apply for Federal student loan discharges is too burdensome.

• The memorandum directs the Secretaries of Education and Veterans Affairs to develop a new expedited process to help totally and permanently disabled veterans have their Federal student loan debt discharged with minimal burdens.

• Also, in 2017, President Trump signed into law the Forever GI Bill, allowing individuals to access their veteran educational benefits at any point in during their lifetime.

FIGHTING FOR OUR VETERANS: President Trump will continue to fight for and protect our veterans, just as they courageously fought for and protected our country.

• President Trump remains committed to the care and well-being of every single warrior who has served in the United States military.

• The President signed into law the Veterans Affairs (VA) Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, making it easier to fire failing VA employees and support whistleblowers.

o Since, the VA has fired more than 7,600 employees who have failed our veterans and has instituted reforms to increase efficiency and decrease abuse.

• VA healthcare is now significantly better than when President Trump was elected, with trust in VA outpatient health care now close to 90%.

PROVIDING THE SUPPORT OUR HEROES DESERVE: President Trump will continue to ensure our veterans receive quality healthcare and have access to the resources they need to succeed.

• This Administration is working tirelessly to ensure that veterans receive the highest quality of care and support possible.

• The President signed the VA MISSION Act, providing more healthcare options for veterans by consolidating existing programs and expanding access to care in veterans' own communities.

• President Trump is also committed to ending the tragedy of veterans' suicide, securing $8.6 billion in funding for VA mental health services.

• President Trump's PREVENTS Initiative executive order established a task force to help better understand and prevent suicide.

• Since the President's election, veteran unemployment was reduced to the lowest level ever recorded. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
