President Trump signs an executive order canceling student loan debt for disabled veterans.
Excellent move! These vets have already paid their debt. It’s about time they got something in return. Thank you, President Trump, for your great support of the military and our great veterans!
President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that forgives all student loan debt for any permanently disabled U.S. military veterans.
The order, which Trump signed following a speech at the American Veterans National Convention in Louisville, Ky., also clears those eligible veterans from having to pay any federal income tax on the loans. Trump added that he is pressuring individual states to follow suit.take our poll - story continues below
“The debt of these disabled veterans will be completely erased,” Trump said. “That’s hundreds of millions of dollars of student loans debt for our disabled veterans that will be completely erased.”
The memo Trump signed directs the government to develop an “expedited” process so veterans can have their federal student loan debt discharged “with minimal burdens.” Currently, just half of the roughly 50,000 disabled veterans who are qualified to have their federal student loan debt forgiven have received the benefit because of a burdensome application process.

Well done, Mr. President. In this world of politics, excuses and outright lies you made the right decision and did the right thing.
Our veterans are a national treasure. They have been neglected for so long, but NO MORE!
THANK YOU, President @realDonaldTrump for standing up for these heroes. ??
