Veterans also took a more favorable view of Mr. Trump on a number of national security issues, according to the Pew survey. Women, younger veterans and Democrats generally were more skeptical of the president's respect for veterans.
Hensley, however, said Trump is "wholly unfit" to be commander in chief. "It shows the Rothschilds - a Jewish family - controlling George Soros, another Jew, on puppet strings, who, in return, has David Petraeus and H.R. McMaster wearing military garb, attached to puppet strings".
Trump said last week on Fox News that Google, Facebook and Twitter "are fighting me hard right now, which is incredible because I think the Democrats want to shut them up and, frankly, so do a lot of the Republicans want to shut them up". "President Trump's desperate effort to tell a story about his environmental record at a White House gathering does not erase his ongoing war on the Great Lakes". The findings come amid signs of leadership turmoil at the Pentagon, including the sudden resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis last December.
Trump administration officials cited overall air pollution reductions, using a timeline stretching back to the creation of the EPA in 1970.
The Pew survey found 58% approve of Trump's decision to send troops to the border with Mexico to help deal with migrants trying to cross into the U.S.
But veterans leaned more critical of the president's proposal for a new branch of the military, called Space Force, to police outer space: 53% disapproved, while 45% approved.

Another Twitter user tweeted, "If you plan on buying a hammer, wood, or ANY home improvement items from Home Depot, you may as well send donations DIRECTLY to trump's 2020 campaign". That's particularly concerning for a military veteran, she said, given that they know what's at stake in combat.
Veterans were also more likely than the general public to be supportive of the president's calls for increased military spending, 39% saying more money should go toward the military as compared to 31% of other USA adults.
The general public's views are almost identical: 62% of Americans overall say the Iraq war was not worth it, while 32% say it was; 59% of the public says the war in Afghanistan was not worth fighting, less than 40% say it was. It conducted a parallel survey of 1,087 US adults May 14-24 to compare findings. The margin of sampling error was plus or minus 3.9 percentage points and 3.1 percentage points, respectively.
