Another broken Trump promise, fails to set up military hotline for veterans’ complaints.
Nearly four months into his presidency, Donald Trump’s White House has not set up a promised hotline for veterans’ complaints that he vowed would speed up reforms at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The idea was part of candidate Trump’s 10-point plan to help veterans unveiled last July. Most of the other promises are also unfulfilled, although several will require cooperation from Congress regarding additional funding or new legal authorities.
But the hotline, which Trump promised would be “devoted to answering veterans’ complaints of wrongdoing at the VA and ensure no complaints fall through the cracks,” was largely assumed to be within the new president’s executive office powers and budget. More from Military Times here.
