On Wednesday, President Trump signed an executive order that directed the Department of Education to cancel all federal student-loan debt for severely disabled veterans. Over 25,000 “completely and permanently” disabled veterans will see an absolute forgiveness of student loan debts, Trump said.
This support for veterans underlines the Trump administration’s pattern of support for veterans. In 2017, the Trump administration passed the Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, which accelerates the process of firing negligent VA employees, and it passed the Forever GI Bill, which allows veterans to access their veteran educational benefits at any point in their lifetime.
For those out there on the left and the right that mistakenly think you have to subscribe to a politically leaning party in order to find solutions, look no further than President Donald J Trump. This executive decision is one that neither party has talked about, yet it gives back to the very people that paid the second highest price for our freedoms, the highest being death itself. That’s what being a true leader is all about in comparison to political ideologues. I salute you Mr. President.
