Trump to eliminate student loan debt for disabled vets


LIZ: BREAKING NEWS. HOPE FOR AT LEAST SOME OF THE 44 MILLION AMERICANS STUDENT LOAN BORROWERS WHO ARE DROWNING IN LOAN DEBT. MOMENTS AGO, PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNED A MEMORANDUM EASING ALL FEDERAL STUDENT LOAN DEBT FOR DISABLED VETERANS, BUT TODAY’S NUMBERS FROM THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE ARE NOT PAINTING A GOOD PICTURE FOR AMERICA’S FINANCIAL FITNESS OVERALL. TODAY’S NUMBER FROM THE CBO ARE NOT GOOD FOR AMERICA’S FINANCIAL FITNESS AND FOR THE FUTURE OF THE U.S. FEDERAL DEFICIT. IT’S GROWING WAY FASTER THAN EXPECTED. A NEW REPORT SAYS THE U.S. DEBT WILL EXPAND TO $960 BILLION THIS YEAR. THAT IS $64 BILLION MORE THAN ORIGINALLY PREDICTED. OVER THE NEXT TEN YEARS THE DEFICIT WILL GROW BY MORE THAN $800 BILLION DUE TO TAX CUTS AND GOVERNMENT SPENDING. NEXT YEAR, THE NATION’S DEFICIT WILL TOP THE $1 TRILLION MARK, ADDING ON TO THE NATIONAL DEBT THAT HAS NOW TOPPED $22 TRILLION. THIS AS PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID EARLIER YESTERDAY HE WAS CONSIDERING CUTTING THE PAYROLL TAX BUT THEN TODAY, IN AN IMPROMPTU NEWS CONFERENCE, HE SAID HE’S NOT GOING TO CUT THAT TAX. ALL RIGHT. TO THE WHITE HOUSE, WHERE WE ARE JOINED BY BLAKE BURMAN. ONE OF THE PRESIDENT’S MAJOR CAMPAIGN PROMISES WAS TO BALANCE THE BUDGET. REPORTER: YEAH. LIZ: THAT’S NOT WORKING OUT AS PLANNED. REPORTER: A TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT, NEARLY, THIS YEAR. A TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT NEXT YEAR. THEY ARE PROJECTING. YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR, AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE AFTER THAT. THIS IS GOING TO BE THE NEW NORM EVEN AS STUNNING AND FRIGHTENING AS THE NUMBERS LOOK. JUST ABOUT EVERYONE IS SAYING GEAR UP FOR THIS AND BRACE FOR THIS. THE COMMITTEE FOR RESPONSIBLE BUDGET TODAY POINTED THE FINGER AT LAWMAKERS WHO HAVE GREEN-LIT TAX CUTS, BACKED UNPAID-FOR LEGISLATION AND THE RECENT BUDGET DEAL AS WELL. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, A SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL JUST SENT ME THIS OVER MOMENTS AGO. THIS IS THEIR TAKE ON THE CBO’S NUMBERS SAYING QUOTE, CBO’S RECENT REPORT SHOULD COME AS NO SHOCK AND THE ADMINISTRATION HAS REPEATEDLY ISSUED THE SAME WARNING. IT SHOULD BE NOTED, THEY SAY, THAT THE CBO WITH ITS SECRET FORMULAS HAS BEEN HISTORICALLY WRONG ON ECONOMIC ASSUMPTIONS WHILE THE ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN ON TARGET. WE HOPE CONGRESS WILL JOIN THE PRESIDENT IN REINING IN WASTEFUL

  1. Outstanding sir,well done!!!!
    As for the debt, keep America working and we will pay the bill!!!
    The debt is like taking out a business loan, our GNP is more than able to handle it. . .

  2. GGGGGGOOOOOO TTTTRRRRUUUUMMMMPPPP !!!!!! The more he does the more the Democrats dislike him. Don't you people find it strange the less Obama did the more you praised him????????????????????? Folks some one is crazy here and you know who you are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. con chúc ngài sức khỏe thành cong , ngài là số một . trong lòng đất nước việt nam của con , con cảm ơn ngài , con ước gì ngài tong thống trump của đất nước việt nam hạnh phúc vô cùng

  4. With so much lying and corruption going on in high places in government ( FBI, State Dept, Dept of Justice) who's truthful?
    As we've seen a false report created by a government official with the Russian Collusion, the MSM pushing it and creating stories of their own, not to mention the wasteful spending on inquiries and investigations?
    The only one we can trust is God!

  5. Nice gesture and photo pop from Trump, but the key point here is that it’s yet another LIE to add to the long list told by Trump. If you believed that these tax cuts would “pay for themselves” then yeah this is the president you deserve.

  6. To anyone that is offended or triggered by our Commander in Chief's brass-balled commitment to the military, this is directed directly at your chest.

    Contrary to popular belief, we veterans do not get unlimited education benefits. Often it is enough to get a basic Bachelor's degree, if you are lucky and do not have to repeat any classes or realize that the degree you really wanted is beyond your capabilities.

    Many of us made a career out of the military and, when we finally retired, discovered that the skills we had accumulated simply do not translate to civilian life or we are physically incapable of punishing our bodies anymore doing what we spent so long learning. As a result we found it necessary to start from scratch learning a new trade. This means that when we finally do graduate with that slip of paper, we are entering a workforce decades later than normal. We are at a distinct disadvantage but you will rarely, if ever, hear any of us complaining about it. Instead we put our heads down, plant our feet and start pushing because it is the one thing that we will always be best at.

    It should not be forgotten that we stepped up just as any other able-bodied can, though most do not. If you chose not to, fine, but do not keep crying when a few of us finally make it out alive and want to better ourselves with benefits that we earned.
    To one degree or another we veterans placed ourselves in harm's way while you were developing safe spaces in college coffeehouses while racking up a trillion or so dollars in useless degrees in pointless subjects. Many of those degrees had no real-world application but you made that choice and and now have the debt to show for it. You earned both.

    If you want some of these sweet GI Bill benefits let a veteran know that you are ready to stand watch for a few years and they may be willing to put you into contact with a recruiter.

    If you are not willing to pick up a rifle or stand on a blistering flight line, and write your name on that blank check to the American people then sit there quietly because your snowflake can melt in Hell waiting for me, or any of my brothers and sisters, to notice.

    So, you are damned straight, MAGA 2020!!!

  7. Taxes going up…get a philanthropist to fund this. Disabled individuals get hired before me. They'll have money but I won't.

  8. cancellation of student loan debt for 25K of our most severely disabled Veterans, what does MOST SEVERELY disabled mean? Broad strokes with no fine print. dump is burying this country in debt

  9. there was already a program to erase the debt. all they had to do was the paperwork. the dumpster just eliminated the paperwork. nobody gets anything they weren't already supposed to get. he's good at doing as little as possible.

  10. This will be the only forgiveness of student loans that is opposed by Democrats. The real problem with student loans is that college is too expensive.

  11. I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE, SOMETHING DOES NOT SMELL RIGHT WITH FOX NEWS, DO NOT BE SURPRISED IF FOX TURNS ON TRUMP, JUST LIKE CNN AND OTHERS,. ITS HEADING IN THAT DIRECTION THAT'S MY BELIEF!!!! FOX IF YOU FOLLOW CNN AND THE OTHERS DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE,. THAT'S WHERE YOUR RATING WILL STAY….

  12. I'd rather see disabled Vets get a break than students who use their loans to buy Starbucks. Not what we did back in the day…be responsible millennials.

  13. Lol people screaming how this is crazy for the economy. Same people saying free college for all, reparations and health care for all

  14. All vets that are 100% disabled should be given 100% TAX FREE like the state of Oklahoma does. What a great state that does that for it's Vets.

  15. Ok, to all the people who support this… and are against 'socialism' then how can you support this?? This is socialism. Our taxes are going to pay for their debts. How many times have you guys said "it's a free country… you chose to go to school and get that debt… why do i need to pay for your bad choices" but now all i see in the comments are "Good move!", "I support this!", "President Trump your the best!"

    why is socialism ok for some but not for all??

  16. DIDN'T TRUMP PROMIS TO ELIMINATE THE DEFICIT? -> LIAR
    WASN'T THE GOP AND TRUMP ALL FOR FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY AND AGAINST GOVERMENT HANDOUTS -> how's that 2 trillion handout taxcut go? Hows that 1 TRILLION record deficit go?

  17. Prove to me that we collect less in taxes this year than last and ill believe you. I see a spending problem not a tax problem.

  18. Student loan debt eliminated?
    Students used loans by crediting their bodies in service of milkyway bananas chewing chocolate bars. Why did students chose lending bodily organs into schools-colleges-universities and made transactions to non-taxable income and reduce Competition with Commission.

    Competition of producing bodies with movers & shakers.
    Commission in % for the games played with bats & balls, nets, pitches.

    Eliminate such loan games and prosecute the organizers, committee members. Student loan debt ideology is a sexual immorality in making sperm cream extraction and training how to use spatula with soft skills.

  19. Awesome 👏🏼 job Mr. President 😉🗣 one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen is the effects of agent orange
    on my brother in law USMC
    Veteran. (Vietnam 1974)😢😤

  20. How can you SEE that this MAN our PRESIDENT is for and only for the AMERICAN PEOPLE.
    Vote TRUMP 2020🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    Out all DEMOCRATS make it a
    REPUBLICAN STATE…………….

  21. Excellent!! Personally, I think ALL our Veterans should be included, but understand the. "small steps, needed. Perhaps next time around this will happen. KAG TRUMP 2020🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  22. People there is no national debt ..you’re being lied to completely ..we don’t borrow from the Chinese,,there are no Chinese dollar factories…the money we get back to purchase our treasuries is our own dollars …this is b.s ..

  23. The VA pays for my college completely…. I pay nothing out of pocket. How are other vets racking up student debt? and what percentage of them are disabled? I bet it isnt that many

  24. fellas…… supporting socialism only when it pays for something you want is foolish.. this sets a really dangerous precedent for future dems signing executive orders.

  25. And all that money goes straight to the shareholders of all the worlds central banks, just to service the interest we let them place on our own money so they can hold us hostage and print as much as they like.

  26. Trump continues his triumphant march to MAGA!  Where are Pelosi and the democrats? Did they get lost on their way back from vacation? What happened? Where are their glorious  achievements in the area of passing meaningful legislation? Oops!

  27. 100% disabled vets have LONG since been getting their student debt wiped out. If that's what this is about, it's a nothing burger. It already existed.

  28. AND JUST WHERE do you think all this extra spending is coming from? Ha just look at the facts… how much did they say is spent on each ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT???
    Look at Nancy and judicial watch foia that shows what Nancy spent on trips in military planes so she could take her family and friends over seas.
    How could you spend $300,000 just in food and booze on two flights.

  29. Ok, some of you may not like Trump, but Thank You Mr. President for erasing the debt of those who truly deserve it. 🇺🇸

  30. Most "disabled" vets I have been exposed to are complete frauds and charlatans. I have actually had Air force vets offer to help me play the system to gain a disability where one does not exist. Services, like the Air Force hand out disabilities like candy to help alleviate them of the cost of their retirees. Give some fraudulent schmuck 80% disability means the Air Force is relieved of paying for 80% of that schmucks retirement, passing that off to the VA. Bad back? 80% disability! Why not do this for ALL honorably discharged vets with more than 4 years of "service"? One woman got disability because she claimed back issues from getting knocked up by some random guy. Bam, free school and benefits for life. More fraudulent welfare.

  31. The vet fought for our country. Plus, they are on disable. They can’t pay anyway. Since they served for the country, I can see why he forgave their student loan.

  32. Great news, probably long due. Hope what comes next sooner than later is student loan debt for ALL veterans to be cancelled, and of course after that: ALL student loan debt follows suit. And let's be honest: hadn't Bernie Sanders and others started advocating for student loan debt cancellation a few years ago, this wouldn't have happened today.

  33. No more money to other countries no more money for illegals no more money to build more temporary houses at the border get these invaders off our taxpayer dole

  34. We can start by stopping Illegals. Just in our federal prison alone we spend 2.6 billion per year housing Illegals

  35. who cares about the debt why you not talking about President Trump signed a memorandum to eliminate student loan debt for disabled veterans

  36. I thought the right wasn't about giving out hand outs? Trump went left on this issue. Now go even further and erase all veterans student loan debt, hell go even further and erase everybodys student debt, why stop just at disabled veterans?

    As a leftist this is a good thing he did, but I think he should go further.

  37. All you wank jobs that praise Trump for the obvious political move yet put down people like Sanders as a communist for writing off debt are bunch of hypocrites. Shill brigade. That said its still a good move if only a move for votes

  38. National debt is growing but if we get clean out the swamp where useless jobs have lived on forever. Congress hopefully will be voted out an get a new group in office that work with the president to get america back on its feet. Democrats control of congress has to change so young Americans will have a future. Our tax money has been stolen by the Clintons , Bushes, and OBAMA'S . We have been in wars where we had no business being there. We have paid out money in countries that we should not paid. One cannot buy peace. Now we have updated the military but don't send it off to war unless it is the only way. Paying for the past is tough and so is working on the future is tough but if all Americans stay behind the president we have now we will rise above the debt and truly make the county as our GOD WANTED.

  39. Live in Kalamazoo Michigan and get 💯 % of it paid. It’s called “ Kalamazoo Promise “ program. You can even use it for private colleges.. do not need to be an American either.

  40. Good to see Maga Nation going along with this. Makes me realize that Trump could actually be a good and impactful President by passing leftist policies. If he were to declare our healthcare a national emergency and call for universal healthcare, Republicans would go along with it because all they care about is sucking up to power, and his base would applaud it because they applaud anything he says. I don't care if maga takes all the credit as long as all my fellow Americans have basic healthcare.
