Trump Says Illegals Treated Better Than Vets, And He’s Going To Completely Change That


GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday at a biker rally in Washington, D.C., illegal immigrants are often treated better than veterans.

In advance of Memorial Day, Trump gave a rousing speech at the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, where he said when he’s president, he’s “not going to allow” illegals to be prioritized over vets “any longer.”

While Trump has previously run afoul of veterans by attacking GOP Sen. John McCain for getting himself captured during the Vietnam War, he has come out very clearly ahead of other candidates among veterans.

A recent poll of veterans and people from military households found 47 percent support for Trump over 38 percent for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The poll also found Trump won out over Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders by 47 percent to 43 percent.

During his Sunday speech, Trump emphasized how he’ll reshape care at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), allowing veterans to get care from doctors at the VA, but also private doctors, if they need it.

“If there’s a wait, we’re going to give the right for those people to go to a private doctor or even a public doctor and get themselves taken care of and we’re going to pay the bill,” he said.

“We’re with you 100 percent,” he added.

The rally was smaller than his usual events, with estimates placing the number of people present at about 5,000. Trump brushed off lower attendance during his speech by saying that people who wanted to get into the event were not being let in.

“I thought this would be like Dr. Martin Luther King, where the people would be lined up from here all the way to the Washington monument, right? Unfortunately, they don’t allow ‘em to come in,” Trump said, according to The Associated Press.
