Today I had an experience at our local Hospital that has sickened me. The Emergency Room Nurses and Doctors are great....They went beyond the call of duty to save my Husband's life and death situation. My devastation lies in the Social Worker and Representative from a local Physical Therapy Center. My Husband and I were told a Loma Linda Veterans Representative was in meeting with Staff to work out a transfer to the Veterans Hospital. A short while later the Social Worker and Rep from the local Physical Therapy Center rudely ran over the ER doctor saying, "A transfer was not going to happen and my husband needed to go back to the Physical Therapy Center....pressuring for an agreement on the spot...After a deliberation of our situation with my husband being released and needing care, we reluctantly consented as our options were apparently none, we knew this was not going to be adaquate care, Oxygen was need in form of a face mask but, only nose hoses were used at the Physical Therapy.. Another issue arose, we were informed we needed to pay $100 cash for a non-emergency transport back to the Physical Therapy Center After return to Physical Therapy, the bed my husband left had been since occupied...a change of rooms was needed which required previous occupants personal items removed, after this Veteran was relocated to the room, still short of breath with insufficient oxygen. After 6 hours of struggling with breathing problems ambulance transported him back to the hospital..What is wrong with our medical system? A VA hospital should of been available without the pain and suffering. Worst of all is, Now What Can I Do to Insure My Vietnam Veteran is treated properly? I hear all the improvements to be made but, we are slipping thru the system. Mr. Trump can you help ? Thank You..I am desperate for answers! Doctors and Nurses are compassionate and provide good care BUT...they cannot control a medical facility.

Show your tax returns. Raise the COL percent for seniors and then leave Medicare alone.

The wall needs to be built. Most of the material could come from the second largest open pit mine in the United States: The Rio Tinto Borax mine near Boron CA. The over-burden could be loaded on long trains and hauled down near the border.

It would not take too long and the cost could be low.

By you saying you want to make "American Great Again" you do not realize that what you plan on doing by sending all "illegals" where they came from that this is just gonna cause even more wars and arguments and if you do not see you are trying to do exactly what Hitler did and if I'm not mistaking that ended horribly you will put us in much dept I assure you Mexico will not pay anything and just because you have nothing else to offer to this county but money and nothing els what do you plan on doing deport your wife too because from what I know she isn't from the US just saying and well we are all even equall people and we do not take jobs we just work hard and were taught to never beg or ask but to work our way up and earn our money life and love we do not burden we live here and like I said us "illegals" where here way before If you may look back in history read about it but your idea of sending all people back I assure you will start a whole nother WWIII and it will then start a problem in money then we will soon starve and well with people like you this world is nothing we do not need a president like you.

Mexico will pay, in the long run, by what we withhold from them. Money is what this country needs thrown back into it to make it better, Not being drained out of it! His wife is an American, she did it the right way, unlike all the illegal's sneaking into our country. And with all due respect, we are not all equals, you are either an American or you are an illegal, period. Get legal, pay taxes and be equal. If illegals are taught not to beg, why are they on food stamps and welfare benefits? Draining the money tax paying citizens paid into the system so that it would be there for them if they needed it? And yes, the American Indian was here before we were, don't get me started on what the government did to them!! If I wanted to sound like a fanatic I would tell you that I think the government has also caused the racial problem in America, since Obama was in there. Ask yourself why a government would do that? Tear us apart bring us down , that's why. But, that was then and this is now, and we have to make this country work like it used to. United we stand divided we fall, that has been true throughout history. President Trump is so different from the common government person, and he is smart in business. I believe he will try to strengthen our country monetarily and that will strengthen our people.

Considering that most of the unwelcome immigrants come from strife-torn regions, regions of the type where the US deploys our military, our policy should be no deploying unless the land is gifted permanently to us. Then we'll have places to deport mischievous immigrants to after we establish peace there.

I think President Trumps wife is a legal citizen, did all she needed to do to become one, enough said, well except that she is a very graceful LADY. I also think I need to fill you in on something. This is not hate or prejudice; I live in the rural south where we are full of illegal's working the fields. Now, I am going to be the first to say that I know most Americans do not like field work, but, they do it, if there is no other job, I have been in employment offices where American men were lining up to go to work that day in a field! But, more importantly, let me educate you to the facts down here. The Friday night line around the store that does western union, where our American dollars are going to Mexico, not back into our country. Where on Sundays the Wal-Mart has many migrant buses parked in the front, while those illegals are in the wal mart spending upwards of 15,000. in food stamps. That's right, they do not have to pay in to that system to receive monies out of it. Are you ok with that? Your hard in money that gets sent to the government can be spent on someone who does not have to pay? The illegal's that receive SS benefits? No money paid in? America used to be great, we are no longer for so many reasons. Where is our pride in self? I don't know about you but, I don't like to see illegals pee in public, or stare rudely and crudely at my daughters. And you better know that I am all for someone from another country coming over here and becoming legal and embracing our way of life, not bringing their negative way of life to us. And you should know that I know some do, so do not think I clump them all in one basket. I have had very rude illegal women tell me that as soon as they learn better English, they would have my job, and I would be without money then. If you are going to come to America, at least embrace the good in this country, learn English, and try to contribute to a better way of life. Not lowering our standards.

I looked at the wrong name on a comment, and this was meant for Michelle, not you.
