“Most of the money went out quite a while ago,” Trump said in a whiny news conference on Tuesday. “Some of it went out more recently. But all of this has gone out.”
‘But according to the AP, half of the organizations that Trump promised donations in January said they didn’t receive checks until last week, just as the unallocated money was beginning to receive greater media scrutiny’.
‘In fact, some of the checks sent to veterans groups were dated May 24’.(1)
‘When asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if she has given money to vets, and what she has done for veterans, Clinton answered’:
“Well, I, of course, have given money to veterans charities, and John McCain and I actually helped to raise funding for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund at Brooke Army Medical Center to build a rehabilitation facility for veterans to get the very best world-class rehabilitation services”.
“I’ve also worked starting as First Lady to deal with some of the problems veterans had, whether it was Agent Orange or whether it was the mysterious illnesses they were bringing back from the Gulf War. I worked as a Senator on the Armed Services Committee on many things. For example, increasing death benefits for families of the fallen from just $12,000 to $100,000, and I worked with Sen. Lindsey Graham to expand healthcare to National Guard and Reserve members, so much of the work I’ve done has meant tens of millions of dollars in increased benefits to veterans and their families as well as a personal commitment”.
