Credit where credit is due.
President Trump has signed a memorandum directing the Department of Education to forgive all federal student loan debt owed by veterans who are “completely and permanently” disabled.
The policy change will eliminate “hundreds of millions of dollars” of student loan debt, Mr. Trump said in announcing the memo at a speech to the American Veterans 75th National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. The memo Mr. Trump signed on stage Wednesday directs Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie to create an expedited process to make sure those veterans have their debt discharged with minimal burdens, according to the White House.
It’s the least we can do for wounded Veterans, after what this nation has done to them.
