Trump on veteran suicide: Some aren’t strong enough to ‘handle it’

Speaking before veterans on Monday, Donald Trump was asked about suicide rates among America’s veterans. He responded that some people were not strong enough to handle combat. “When people come back from war and combat, and they see things that maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over, and you’re strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can’t handle it,” Trump said.
