President Donald Trump will make a “big” announcement Thursday evening during a MAGA rally in West Virginia.
On Thursday, the president announced that federal initiatives, aimed at repairing problems in the Department of Veterans Affairs, led to the creation of a new effort to expand veterans’ access to Telehealth services. The service will help address the extensive backlog of patients waiting for care in some areas of the country.
Thursday’s announcement will expand the VA’s Telehealth capability, but the president says there’s another announcement to come.
“We’re going to West Virginia tonight, by the way,” President Trump said during the Telehealth announcement. “We’re going to have a great big announcement which will be very exciting, I think, for the media and everyone else.”
Although he didn’t elaborate on the content of the announcement, the president reiterated the scale of it, saying it would be “very big.”
“But, we have a very big announcement tonight,” the president continued. “I believe I’ll be making it in West Virginia, so that will be exciting, … Thank you very much.”
Thursday night’s event in Huntington, West Virginia, is another “Make America Great Again” rally. Late last month, the president held a similar event in Youngstown, Ohio. During that event, the crowd united in chanting: “CNN SUCKS!”
At an earlier event in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in June, rowdy protesters interrupted the president’s remarks, making a disruptive amount of noise.
President Trump shrugged the disturbance off, saying, “It never fails.”
Pro-Trump supporters responded to the protesters, drowning the noise with a united chorus of “USA, USA, USA.”
President Trump’s comments concerning tonight’s announcement begin at the 11-min. mark in the video below.
