Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump says Democrat Hillary Clinton is trying to sweep the Veterans Affairs health scandal under the rug.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports:

Speaking to the VFW convention in Charlotte, Trump suggested Clinton doesn't care about the nation's veterans:

(Trump) "Just look at her invasion of Libya and her handling of Benghazi, a disaster."

Some in the crowd chanted "lock her up". Trump vowed to set up a 24-hour phone hot line at the White House to investigate all valid complaints about the Veterans Affairs Department:

(Trump) "This could keep me very busy at night folks. This would take the place of Twitter."

Trump also said he'll appoint a new director for the department.
