    Asked by an audience member if he’d support a “more holistic approach to solve the problems of veteran suicide and PTSD,” Trump responded that “a lot of people can’t handle it (combat), and they see horror stories, they see events that you couldn’t see in a movie, nobody would believe it.”

    “When people come back from war and combat and they see maybe what the people in this room have seen many times over, and you’re strong and you can handle it,” he told the audience of veterans at a town hall-style event in Virginia hosted by the Retired American Warriors PAC. “We need … mental health help and medical.”

    He knows all about this stuff. He played dress-up soldier in high school daddy paid for.

    War is hell, man. The day they ran out of macaroni and cheese in the cafeteria during sophomore year... A lot of guys couldn't take it.
