Under the leadership of President Barack Obama, our military servicemen and women were treated like second class citizens. He did nothing to ensure that these heroes were given what they needed to be successful as veterans. But President Trump announced something that will make these people the heroes that they are while also making Obama look even more worthless.
President Trump has long said that he is going to make this country great again. That is exactly what he did when he made a move within the VA. Obama long promised to fix the broken system that was impacting thousands of veterans across the country. We all remember the speech he gave in 2012 after Benghazi happened. He lied about what was going on just to cover up for himself.
This man was arrogant in every sense of the word. But luckily, we now have a president that will do whatever he can to fix the broken system. That is exactly what happened when this announcement came out. The VA is a long broken system that was full of problems for anyone trying to use it.
That is why the Trump administration has come out firing 500 employees for misconduct or plain stupidity. He also suspended some 200 employees that were caught in some very shady behavior.
“Veterans and taxpayers have a right to know what we’re doing to hold our employees accountable and make our personnel actions transparent,” VA Secretary David Shulkin said in statement. “Posting this information online for all to see, and updating it weekly, will do just that.”
The list that the administration released came out with about 800 names total, many of whom were simply “disciplined.” The Trump administration is cracking down on this sort of misconduct and they will no longer take this kind of behavior.
It is quite obvious that the Obama administration did nothing to fix what was broken. There are many times when the Obama administration simply ignored obvious misconduct. Those areas are now glaringly obvious after Trump has taken over.
Hopefully we can get this problem taken care of very soon. No more lies at the expense of our service people!
