Donald Trump Says He’ll Personally Pay More Fallen Warriors Burials If U.S. Government Can’t

Apparently Billionaire Donald J. Trump has had enough of the United States Government shutdown and he doesn’t seem to like the fact that some fallen U.S. soldiers burials may not be covered by the government during this recent shutdown. Mr. Trump recently took to Twitter and promised to pay for fallen warriors burials during this shutdown period if the government can’t.

The Pentagon recently announced it is suspending immediate payments to families of combat fatalities because of the government shutdown. Obviously, this did NOT sit well with the always outspoken billionaire. The Pentagon normally pays families of fallen warriors up to $100,000 for burial expenses, which includes travels to retrieve a loved one’s remains.

We should note The House on Wednesday unanimously passed a bill that would restore the payment. Now, as we all learned in U.S. Civics, the bill must now be approved by the Senate and signed by President Obama before it can take effect. Until then, Donald J. Trump’s offer stands.
