(WASHINGTON TIMES) The head of a veteran’s group came to Donald Trump’s defense Monday after news outlets suggested the New York billionaire’s comments on post-traumatic stress syndrome shows that he does not have a good grasp of the issue.
“I think it’s sickening that anyone would twist Mr. Trump’s comments to me in order to pursue a political agenda,” said Marine Staff Sgt. Chad Robichaux, president and founder of Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs. “I took his comments to be thoughtful and understanding of the struggles many veterans have, and I believe he is committed to helping them.”
At a town hall style meeting earlier in the day, Mr. Robichaux asked Mr. Trump whether he would advocate for faith-based programs as part of a more holistic approach to helping members of the military that are suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and other health problems.
