ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took his campaign to the Reflecting Pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday, where he gave a speech focusing on veterans affairs and wait times for healthcare. He spoke at the Rolling Thunder event, an annual gathering of veterans, who ride on their motorcycles to the National Mall on Memorial Day weekend to honor U.S. prisoners of war and those missing-in-action. Trump accused his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton of praising the Department of Veterans Affairs for recent progress made there. But Trump cited a personal interaction he had with a veteran who experienced a delay in treatment because his doctor went on vacation, which the Republican presidential candidate said shows there's more work to be done.
