(National Sentinel) Presidential Support: POTUS Donald Trump on Friday signed the largest increase in Veterans Administration spending in decades, declaring that his support for the nation’s warriors, present and past, is unwavering.
“You backed me and I back you. That’s the way it works,” Trump said Friday as he signed the Veterans Administration’s 2019 budget into law.
As Military Times reports, the budget funds the VA at $86.5 billion for fiscal 2019.
The Western Journal noted further:
The budget includes an increase for the VA Mission Act, which increases the ability of veterans to access private health care, with the bill borne by the taxpayers they served. The VA also received increase [sic] for programs related to opioid abuse and suicide prevention, the White House said.
“To every veteran here today: We are eternally grateful for your noble service to our nation,” Trump said Friday at the signing event, per a White House media pool report.
“And we’re fighting to make sure that you get the care that you so richly earned. And today’s legislation is one more promise that the Trump administration is keeping. And we’ve done a lot of promises, and we’ve kept them all. And this is another one for the veterans.
“With this funding bill, we’ve increased the VAs budget to the largest ever. We are delivering the resources needed to fully implement crucial VA reforms … and to deliver for our great veterans, just the way I said I would constantly on the campaign trail. You backed me, and I back you. That’s the way it works, right? That’s the way it’s supposed to work in life,” Trump said.
On the 2016 campaign trail, POTUS Trump promised more support for the country’s veterans.

The funding increase comes following President Obama’s scandal-ridden administration which included the VA.
POTUS Trump is steadily keeping every promise he made to Americans. The only thing stopping him from delivering on more of them is the fact that too many Democrats remain in Congress.
