Travel Pool Report 4

July 25, 2017

AMVETS stop, part 2

Trump took the stage in the small, hot, and crowded legion post at 6:26 p.m.

Trump praised Veterans Secretary Shulkin, who had introduced him.

He said people are now being "held accountable" for the health care treatment of our veterans.

Trump also talked a little politics. Referring to the election, Trump said Democrats usually win Youngstown, "but not this time."

He also talked about the record stock market and trade deals, saying at one point: "NAFTA has been a disaster for Youngstown - it's been a disaster for Ohio."

Turning to the vets, Trump said the White House is sponsoring hero salute events all week. "A truly grateful nation salutes you," he told the post members.

He spent time saying his administration has improved VA health care, and that "the system has been fixed."

Pool was pulled out at 6:34 p.m., with Trump still speaking. We are now holding in vans, about to head to Youngstown.
