Did Donald Trump suggest veterans with PTSD 'can't handle' combat?
by Briana Altergott, Newsy

HERNDON, Va. --
While speaking to a group of United States military veterans on Monday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made a comment that critics say implied that veterans who kill themselves "can't handle" what they've seen in 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.

Trump's latest comment provoked a lot of unflattering social media reaction.

Still, many pointed out Trump's remark was part of a larger comment on how the U.S. needs stronger mental health initiatives for veterans to help those with post-traumatic stress disorder and other serious issues.
"We're going to have a very, very robust, very, very robust, level of performance having to do with mental health," Trump said.
In the past, Trump has promised to ensure that each veteran gets timely access to health care when they need it through the VA or through private care.
The Trump campaign has yet to comment on Monday's remarks.

Yes, he did.
The man who has never served one second of active duty and is hardly the picture of mental health just judged veterans.
And yes, I recall he did go to military prep school.

I don't think his comments came out the right way, but anyone who is in a war and develops PTSD, obviously could not handle the trauma of what they experienced, because other veterans come back and do not develop PTSD. If you have two soldiers in the same unit, one develops PTSD, one does not, what can you say about the one who develops it? They reached their breaking point, they just could not take more and more kept coming leaving residual stress damage.

You have no clue. Each person is different and each person has their own way of coping. Not everyone has the same experiences, even in the same unit. Just look at your own life, Many people have had similar experiences to what you have had without going over the edge.

Stop foaming at the mouth and listen to the whole quote if you want the truth. Candidate Trump is the only one who made Veterans health a campaign issue, smacking down the current sad state of affairs as well as McCain, who talks a bunch but doesnt deliver.

Just another over-reaction by the MSM. Keep it up MSM, along with the whole "outrage" about following the law on his tax filings. It makes undecidededs decision easier.

I did listen to it, did you? The MSM reporting that I have seen is dead on. Trump and his mouthpieces are pretty good at blaming everyone else for all the batsh!t crazy things he says and does..SSDD.

My life's been a war zone since January 2002 when I dared to question the 'official' story of who dunnit in regard to 9.11.01. Now I know you would argue it's not the same as being in the war zone, so I'll say okay, it's been one long psy op creating a war in my life.

You questioned who did 9/11 8 months before it occurred? Moron. You have no idea what combat is. Getting laughed at on a music web site is nowhere near combat. You are a clueless insulting moron for saying that. You, like Trump, think because you think something you are brave. You aren't.

Right, you feel like you have been in combat but can't take it when someone points out that you have no clue. Thanks for proving my point.

I don't have any voices in my head thank you. With regard to everything else, It has gone on too long, I am voting for change. The crooks, cronies, conspirators and go alongs need to get out of all the places they are in within our govt. There are evil people, stupid people in Washington, when those groups get together, the result is what we have going on now. Anyone with a conscience and a brain gets marginalized so they can put someone else in there who will go along with the one world order. Russ Feingold, Dennis Kucinich, Rand Paul, look at what they were/are up against when the rest of them go along with legislation that hurts people in this country. They got rid of Dennis Kucinich with re-districting. How many people stood with Rand against the NSA police state surveillance legislation that just passes each time another part of it comes up?

The end result is people's lives are effected by what goes on in Washington. The crooked, go along federal agents need to go. Who has the balls to take that on and fix it? The Democrats don't even think there is a problem. Trump said his administration will get to the bottom of 9.11.01 and who dunnit. I prefer that versus crooked fbi agents making people's lives miserable.

I think the choices we have to make for the future of the country, and all of us is more important than arguing with you.
