The week of Veterans Day, President Donald Trump made sure to honor all veterans and their families with a speech at the White House.
President Trump recently received criticism for skipping out on a WWI memorial for fallen American soldiers in France as well as a visit to Arlington Cemetery on Veterans Day.
Watch his full speech to veterans in the video below:
Here are some highlights from that speech.
“It was my great honor to host a White House Conference on Supporting Veterans and Military Families,” wrote Trump on Twitter. “To everyone here today who has served our Country in uniform, and to every Veteran and Military family across our land, I want to express the eternal gratitude of our entire Nation!”
“Last year, I signed the landmark VA Accountability Act to ensure those who mistreat our Veterans can be held fully accountable,” Since my inauguration, we have removed more than 3,600 government employees who were not giving our Vets the care they deserve.”
“It is our sacred duty to support America’s Service Members every single day they wear the uniform – and every day after when they return home as Veterans. Together we will HONOR those who defend us, we will CHERISH those who protect us, and we will celebrate the amazing heroes.”
In other Trump Twitter news, as soon as the midterm election was over with, President Donald Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to step down from his position, which many have suspected is due to his recusal from Robert Mueller’s Russian election collusion investigation.
President Trump has become increasingly frustrated with the looming Mueller investigation and lack of any conclusion as it has dragged on for months on end. Trump also remains distrustful of the media and their persistent negative coverage of his administration and his presidency so far.
On Thursday morning, President Trump went to his favorite place to vent his frustrations: Twitter. Here’s what he had to say:
“The White House is running very smoothly and the results for our Nation are obviously very good. We are the envy of the world,” wrote President Trump. “But anytime I even think about making changes, the FAKE NEWS MEDIA goes crazy, always seeking to make us look as bad as possible! Very dishonest!”
The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess. They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts,” the president continued. “They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want.”
“They are a disgrace to our Nation and don’t care how many lives the ruin. These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years. They won’t even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side. A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!”
“Universities will someday study what highly conflicted (and NOT Senate approved) Bob Mueller and his gang of Democrat thugs have done to destroy people,” he continued a few hours later. “Why is he protecting Crooked Hillary, Comey, McCabe, Lisa Page & her lover, Peter S, and all of his friends on the other side?”
“The only ‘Collusion’ is that of the Democrats with Russia and many others. Why didn’t the FBI take the Server from the DNC?” he concluded. “They still don’t have it. Check out how biased Facebook, Google and Twitter are in favor of the Democrats. That’s the real Collusion!”
