Trump raises $6 million for Veterans at Rally
The billionaire businessman also blasted President Obama’s Iran deal, calling it the “worst deal I’ve seen negotiated under any circumstances. … We have to stick up for our country.”
“How is it possible Iran just got $150 billion from this country, their first purchase is 114 Airbus jets. Not Boeing,” he continued. “They go to Russia, they’re buying missiles.”
Listing major donors to the www.donaldtrumpforvets.com site, he announced that the event raised $6 million and that “a politician from New York,” named Donald Trump, had given $1 million.
Trump then called Sen. Rick Santorum up to the stage, along with Gov. Mike Huckabee.
“I’m supporting another candidate for president,” Santorum grinned. “That doesn’t mean we can’t work together to help veterans.”
He called for improvements in health care for veterans.
“Twenty two vets a day commit suicide, because of PTSD and related illnesses,” he said. “Let’s take all that money for the VA … [and have them] take care of our vets.”
Huckabee also called for a unified effort to help veterans.
“Thank you Donald Trump for asking Rick Santorum and me … it says something about him that he would bring us here to his own event. … We wouldn’t have free elections if it wasn’t for the people who stand between bullets and bombs and our freedom.”
