President Donald Trump Thursday morning renewed his promise to take care of the nation's military and veterans Thursday, saying that the transformation from their treatment in the past has been "incredible."
"You see it already," Trump told Fox News' Brian Hegseth during a quick interview before speaking to veterans in Washington for the Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride.
"I love them, and we wouldn't be here if it weren't for them, and I said we're going to take care of them."
The nation's veterans have not been cared of properly, he continued, and Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin "is going to do a fantastic job . . . the results already have been incredible."
Shulkin, said Trump, wants to get "good people" at the VA, and even more so than firing people, "he wants to bring in great people, and it's time. It's time because the VA has not done so well."
Trump will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, marking the first test for Trump's campaign promises of winning negotiations with China.
Thursday, he said it will be "interesting" meeting with Xi, as "we have not been treated fairly on trade for many, many years. No president's taken care of that the way they should have, and we have a big problem with North Korea. We're going to see what happens."
Trump also commented about the Syrian chemical weapons attacks, calling them a "terrible thing."
"When you see little babies that are dead from gas, in a very, very heinous form of gas, which very few people have access to, it's bad stuff," said Trump. "Really bad."
