🚜But in case you need to know a little more, he is part of the third generation from his family who have resided in Montana & has shown that he will protect the state from interlopers. The top “issue” on his campaign website is “fighting for veterans.”

🎖️Just one small example: when he stood up on the Senate floor and made this speech about Vietnam veterans and how they should have all the same benefits as vets from other wars.
💗Donnelly's very first bill—the bipartisan Jacob Sexton Military Suicide Prevention Act—was a labor of love. Jacob was from Indiana and a National Guard member who tragically took his own life in 2009.

🎖️Sinema believes that taking care of active duty military and veterans is one of the “most important obligations we have as Americans. Every American who wears the uniform deserves our respect and full support, both on the battlefield and when he or she returns home.”
🏛️While serving Arizona’s 9th District in Congress, Sinema took on the local VA facility in Phoenix, AZ. She learned that approximately 40 Arizona veterans died while waiting for care on “secret” VA lists.

1.)

The problem with “#SHITHOLE”.
I do not give a shit about “anyone” including our #SHITHOLEPresident using the word SHITHOLE! That is just a stupid vulgar word. Our #SHITHOLEPresident should never have used it, But…

There are many problems surrounding our #SHITHOLEPresident and his #SHITHOLE comments, but my issues are twofold, (ONE). the full contextual meaning of what he said, and

(TWO). the level of his ignorance and negative impact it is having on the global community.
