Reno Leaders React To Trump Visit


"It is time to heal the wounds that have divided us, and to seek a new unity based on the common values that unite us", Trump said, speaking before more than 5,000 members of the largest veterans group on Wednesday (Aug 23).

On Wednesday, though, Trump followed his script closely, and all he offered was an aside - "history and culture, so important" - with no direct mention of statues at all.

The resolution states that "the American Legion considers any individual, group of individuals, or organisations, which creates, or fosters racial, religious or class strife among our people, or which takes into their own hands the enforcement of law, determination of guilt, or infliction of punishment, to be un-American, a menace to our liberties, and destructive to our fundamental law".

As of Tuesday night, more than 300 people indicated on Facebook that they would rally against Trump outside the venue. Instead, he simply thanked Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sen.

In Nevada, though, Trump passed on opportunities to attack two Republicans who at times gummed up the GOP's push to repeal and replace Obamacare.

In Reno, Trump pointed to veterans as examples of the kind of national pride and unity he says he's trying to inspire.

"I support anyone that takes care of our troops over there and veterans", said Tom Goodin, 65, a retired auto salesman and Vietnam veteran from Jefferson City, Mo. "I got them all", Trump said in Phoenix.

Trump said that American can build their future together if they have the courage to act, the strength to endure and the patriotism to join together with true affection for fellow citizen.

"For those who think just because we want to work more with the community that that's privatization, it's absolutely not", Shulkin told the crowd. He briefly talked about crime, needed infrastructure improvements and "failing" government schools, but repeatedly returned to the message that "we have no division too deep for us to heal". "That's why we're here today, for America and for God". Together, we can not fail.

"I promised you that I would make it my priority to fix the broken VA", the President reminded the American Legion.

President Donald Trump has signed into law a bill that would cut the amount of time the Department of Veterans Affairs takes to decide veterans' appeals of their disability payments. Under the "New Evidence Lane", a veteran could submit new evidence for review and have a hearing.

"What's going to happen is instead of filing supplemental appeals, everybody's going to file a supplemental claim and it's going to move the backlog from the appeals to the supplemental claims", said John Wells, executive director of the Military-Veterans Advocacy Inc.

"Last night, as you know, I laid out my vision for an honorable and enduring outcome in a very tough place, a place where our country has failed: Afghanistan", Trump said at Tuesday's campaign rally.

"They don't do a good job, they're out", he added.

Also while in Arizona, Trump visited Yuma - where he met with border control and ICE agents.
