Trump administration breaks campaign promise, purges 200,000 VA healthcare applications

Trump’s strong condemnation of the Obama administration’s handling of
the backlog of hundreds of thousands of veteran benefits claims made him
the overwhelming choice for many veteran voters in 2016. But after two years in the White House, the Trump administration has
decided to execute a plan to purge 200,000 applications for VA
healthcare caused by known administrative errors within VA’s enrollment process and enrollment system — problems that had already been documented by the Office of the Inspector General in 2015 and 2017.
