RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Presidential candidate Donald Trump will give a speech on veterans reform in Virginia Beach Monday afternoon.

According to a press release from his campaign, the event is not open to the general public, but members of the press are welcome to request media credentials to attend.

The event will be held at the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center in the Monarch Ballroom at 1 p.m. Monday.

The address for the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center is 4535 Commerce Street, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23462.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — In another nod to primary rival Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton is proposing to increase federal money for community health centers and outlining steps to expand access to health care across the nation.

Clinton’s campaign says the proposal is part of her plan to provide universal health care coverage in the United States. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee also is reaffirming her support for a public-option insurance plan and for expanding Medicare by letting people age 55 year and older opt in.

The announcement Saturday was a clear gesture toward Sanders, who ran a strong primary campaign against Clinton and has held back from endorsing her candidacy as the party’s convention nears.

In a statement, Clinton said: “We have more work to do to finish our long fight to provide universal, quality, affordable healthcare to everyone in America.”
