VA Hospital Removes Portraits Of President Trump And New VA Secretary Hung By Vets (Video)

When Republican congressman and Army veteran Brian Mast saw that a Florida VA hospital didn’t have photographs of President Trump and Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin hanging in the lobby, he took action.

Mast and a group of local veterans brought portraits of Trump and Shulkin to the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center and demanded they be installed, and the whole thing was caught on camera, Fox News reports.

They were successful, but within hours management at the hospital took down the pictures.

Their reason? They could not authenticate the photos and they have to follow protocol.

A VA spokeswoman said that the congressman’s actions and the actions of the veterans who accompanied him were “inappropriate.”

She said that portraits on display at the VA need to come from the central office.

Mast, who lost both his legs while serving in Afghanistan and still receives treatment at the West Palm Beach VA facility, expressed his disappointment on Twitter.
