Oct. 8, 2020 - A message from President Trump updating on the status of the United States military.
“I took over a depleted military -- old equipment, broken equipment.” He spent $2.5 trillion to provide the military with equipment that’s never been better. “New tanks and planes. F-35s. All of the best of everything nobody thought was possible. The military has never been in stronger shape whether it’s rockets or missiles or anything you can name. We’re building a lot of ships right now. We’re getting our Navy back to where it should be.”
As for veterans, Trump said his administration put “accountability” in place at the VA that has been absent for 45 years.
“VA would be treating people badly and we couldn’t do anything about the people that were treating our great soldiers, our great heroes badly. Now you fire them right away because of accountability. For 45 years they were trying to get that.”
“Our military has never been in stronger shape. There’s never been a president that has your back like I do."
