Not all people are 'strong'

That's true even when talking about veterans. Not all veterans are struck with PTSD. Nor are all people struck with cancer. Yet, the Clinton camp thinks that all veterans are 'strong'. I don't see where Trump's comments are inhuman. Do you?
“When you talk about the mental health problems, when people come back from war and combat — and they see things that maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over and you’re strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can’t handle it. ,.,,,
And they see horror stories. They see events that you couldn’t see in a movie. Nobody would believe it..........
the whole mental health issue is going to be a very important issue when I take over, and the VA is going to be fixed in so many ways, but that’s gonna be one of the ways we’re gonna help, and that’s in many respects going to be the No. 1 thing we have to do because I think it’s really been left behind.”

He sounded genuine, and maybe he's trying to learn fast. After all, he has no experience of politics and Clinton is well seasoned - though still unpalatable! Whether he would or could do anything if elected, or is he just saying anything to get elected, is open to question.
