Trump: Illegal Immigrants Are Taken Care of Better Than Veterans

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump used a Memorial Day weekend speech to press his message on veterans, saying that his administration would take care of them and correct a situation in which “illegal immigrants are taken care of by this country better than our veterans.”

Speaking at the annual Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally in Washington DC that raises awareness of veterans issues, Trump also vowed to rebuild the military and use it to “beat the hell” out of the Islamic State, saying that “our generals are spinning in their graves” with this defeatist mentality of “we can’t beat” them.
