POTUS entered a room at the VA at 11:10 am.

A huge blue banner that said “supporting our veterans” has been erected at the back of a makeshift stage.

Dozens of people, perhaps 100, were seated in the audience. 

The audience clapped when Gov. Brian Sandoval, Sen. Dean Heller and Attorney General Adam Laxalt, the Republican nominee for governor, each walked in before POTUS. All of them stood with POTUS on a stage.

VA Secretary Robert Wilkie introduced POTUS.

“President Trump is the first candidate and the first president to put veterans at the center of his campaign…,” he said. 

POTUS will sign legislation appropriating funds for energy and water, military construction and Veterans Affairs and the legislative branch. 

More to come.
