Much of the money I have raised for our veterans has already been distributed, with the rest to go shortly to various other veteran groups. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 24, 2016
Amazingly, with all of the money I have raised for the vets, I have got nothing but bad publicity from the dishonest and disgusting media. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 24, 2016
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appears on stage with fellow candidates Rick Santorum, left, and Mike Huckabee, right, at a Trump event in support of veterans at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, Thursday, Jan. 28, 2016.
In January, Donald Trump claimed a stunt fundraising event he hosted raised $6 million for veterans. He said he personally contributed $1 million of his self-proclaimed $8.7 billion fortune toward that total.
While under no obligation to do so, I have raised between 5 & 6 million dollars, including 1million dollars from me, for our VETERANS. Nice! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 24, 2016
