President Trump catches a lot of flack from folks, some on the right, most on the left, but regardless of where you stand on his performance in the White House, the one thing we can all agree on is that he loves the U.S. military.
He treats members of our armed services with total respect, a move that’s clearly illustrated by what he’s now doing for disabled veterans. Trump has signed an executive order that will forgive these folks’ student loan debt.
“The debt of these disabled veterans will be completely erased,” President Trump said. “That’s hundreds of millions of dollars of student loans debt for our disabled veterans that will be completely erased.”
The executive order provides an “expedited” process for veterans to receive student loan forgiveness. Currently, only about 20 percent of eligible disabled veterans have applied for loan forgiveness under the current program, the Total and Permanent Disability Discharge, due to the complicated process.
The order will apply to about 25,000 disabled veterans, according to a tweet from the president. Those 25,000 have debt of about $30,000 each, on average.
“It was my honor to sign a Presidential Memorandum facilitating the cancellation of student loan debt for 25K of our most severely disabled Veterans,” President Trump wrote. “With today’s order, we express the everlasting love & loyalty of a truly grateful Nation. God bless our Vets, & God Bless America!”
After the Obama administration, it’s a total breath of fresh air to have someone in the Oval Office who doesn’t treat the men and women who defend our nation like they are the enemy of the state.
These folks have sacrificed more than any of us could ever imagine in order to ensure that our way of life is preserved for future generations and that we can live our lives without fear of terrorist attacks. This is a sacrifice that deserves to be honored.
If we won’t take care of our warriors, those who are willing to die for our principles, how can we take care of other citizens?
