​6/2/17: Trump approved a billed called "American Law Enforcement Heroes Act of 2017" giving priority for federal grants to those federal and state law enforcement agencies that hire and train veterans.


6/23/17: Donald Trump signed a law creating accountability at Department of Veterans Affairs. The billed dubbed "Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act" was passed by Congress on 6/13/17.
