President Trumps hiring freeze is forcing two Army bases to suspend their child-care programs

When President Trump ordered a federal hiring freeze shortly after taking office, critics were quick to point out that it could have a serious impact on veterans and service members, who make up 30 percent of the federal workforce. Now another piece of evidence has come out indicating that they were correct.

Officials at Army bases in Fort Knox, Kentucky, and U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden, Germany, have had to indefinitely suspend services that they provided to children who reside at their bases, according to Military.com.

2. This is for real

They have very strict rules. Trump's freeze has effected a lot of under-the-radar stuff.
It's a scandal that should be more of an issue.
