President Donald Trump just took a major step towards saving the lives of our brave veterans. Democrats and the media are going to freak out when they realize what he just did.
Trump ordered the VA to order a new, state-of-the-art, experimental drug for depression in patients who have not been helped by other drugs. While the drug’s effectiveness has not been verified completely, we owe it to our brave men and women in uniform to give them the very best.
At the very least, our vets deserve a fighting chance. They risked their lives for us in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and elsewhere. Now they struggled with depression, anxiety, and PTSD as a result. The suicide numbers are off the chart.
It’s time to help them. And that’s what President Trump just did. “It’s still under the supervision of anesthesiologists at [the] VA, but FDA has approved the combination of several drugs and Spravato [as] a means to combat depression,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. The hope is that this drug will help vets suffering from depression and reduce the risk of suicide.
“There’s a product that’s made right now that just came out by Johnson & Johnson which has a tremendously positive, pretty short-term, but nevertheless a positive effect,” said Trump. “I’ve instructed the head of the VA to go out and buy a lot of it, and we are buying a lot of it.”
This is yet another example of President Trump taking care of our military men and women. We’re grateful for their service to the country, and this move shows it.
