RELEASE: Ahead of Texas Military Base Visit, Trump and Pence Want to Sell Out Texas Military Families, Divert $38.5 Million from Military Funds to Build a Stupid Border Wall

Trump/Pence Broken Promises to Our Military Are Bad for Texans

Austin, TX — Today, making yet another visit to the biggest battleground state, Vice President Mike Pence stopped at Fort Hood to observe military training before jetting off to yet another campaign fundraiser.

A little over a month ago, the Trump/Pence Administration tried to divert $38.5 million in Texas military projects to fund their unpopular border wall. Joined by their biggest ally, Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn, the Trump/Pence Administration has repeatedly broken their promises to Texans, specifically to military families.

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“When it comes to the Trump Administration’s commitment to the military, look no further than Trump’s plan to divert $38.5 million in important military funds for a useless wall that Texans do not want.

“Texas is the biggest battleground state in the country. Donald Trump and Mike Pence can fly in and out of our state all they want, but Texans won’t be fooled by staged photo ops and political rhetoric. We all know Donald Trump and Mike Pence’s record is full of broken promises.”
