LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -

President Donald Trump is ordering his administration to find ways to forgive student loan debt held by disabled veterans.

Trump signed the order Wednesday after his speech to more than 2,500 veterans attending the AMVETS national convention in Louisville, Kentucky. He says that there will be no federal income tax on the forgiven debts and that he will ask states to waive their taxes on the loans.
