Trump’s misleading claims on military readiness and veteran care

According to the president, he inherited a military from President Barrack Obama that was severely depleted, lacking modern and sufficient equipment, and a veterans’ health-care system that did not allow veterans to seek medical care outside of the VA even when it was unable to provide this care for them in a timely manner. However, as with most of the claims that the president makes, these claims are both false and misleading.
