President Donald Trump lauded military veterans during his State of the Union residence — but internet users beaten him.
Social media users pilloried the boss for claiming to support military service veterans while endorsing policies that underfund their care.
“I sealed the landmark VA Accountability Act,” Trump said. “Since its passage, my administration has already private some-more than 1,500 VA employees who unsuccessful to give the veterans the caring they merit — and we are employing gifted people who adore the vets as much as we do.”
“I will not stop until the veterans are scrupulously taken caring of, which has been my guarantee to them from the very commencement of this good journey,” he added.
Twitter users were unimpressed.
Trump, take the word “veterans” out of your sphincter mouth.#SOTU

Did anyone notice that he talked about 1500 left from VA, but no genuine series on deputy numbers? Veterans know that the VA is cursed to destroy this way.#SOTU

Y’alls (government) provides the staff and the comforts for veterans at VA hospitals.

Trump uses veterans as a hackneyed articulate point. To know what he really thinks of veterans, revisit his comments about Sen. John McCain. #SOTU #SOTU2018 pic.twitter.com/rD0YV3WWqv
