Trump opens his #AMVETS75th remarks by referencing changes to VA medical care (sort of). "You used to wait for weeks and weeks and weeks. You don’t wait anymore, you go out and see a private doctor. You’ve been trying to get veterans choice for 44 years. And now you have it."
VA Choice was approved in 2014. VA officials have insisted that when Trump says "VA choice," he means freer rules for veterans to seek outside care and not the specific program. The "44 years" is less clear.
Donald Trump again said today that he got Veterans Choice approved. This programme was signed into law by President Obama in 2014.
