President Donald Trump has still not set up a promised White House hotline to hear veterans' complaints, the Military Times reported.

The hotline was promised by Trump during the campaign and was supposed to be "devoted to answering veterans' complaints of wrongdoing at the Veterans Administration," the Times said. It was generally expected to be set up by Trump's executive office powers.

Trump had promised a room full of vets in Charlotte, N.C. in July 2016 that he would stop using Twitter so he could watch over the personal hotline for all grievances against the military health care system, the Daily News in New York reported.

The newspaper reported Trump had told the group: "I will create a private White House hotline. This could keep me very busy at night, folks. This will take the place of Twitter."

Trump vowed to he would tell his staff to flag unaddressed "valid complaints" and that he will "pick up the phone personally and get it completed," according to the newspaper.

But nearly four months into his presidency, nothing has been done, the Military Times said.

The proposal was part of Trump's plan to help veterans, which he released while running for president.

"Most of the other promises are also unfulfilled, although several will require cooperation from Congress regarding additional funding or new authorities," Leo Shane III wrote for the Military Times.
