(Louisville, KY) - President Trump is eliminating student loan debt for veterans who are completely and permanently disabled.
Speaking to veterans in Louisville, Trump says he signed a memorandum directing the Department of Education to eliminate all debt owed to those who served. Trump says "America must never abandon our heroes in their hour of need."
The administration says just half of the roughly 50,000 disabled veterans who are qualified have received the benefit because of a tedious application process.
Trump visited Kentucky today to speak to more than 2,500 veterans attending the AMVETS convention, a nonpartisan veterans' organization.
