Donald Trump Details $5.6M in Charitable Contributions to Veterans’ Groups

untitledResponding to questions about his contributions to veterans’ charities, Donald Trump detailed today the groups that have shared the millions he said he collected at his Iowa fundraiser in January.

“I raised close to $6 million. It will probably be over that amount when it’s all said and done, but as of this moment, it’s $5.6 million,” Trump asserted today at a news conference at Trump Tower in New York.

Trump said the money has been distributed, blaming the delay on the need to vet the groups.

“I had teams of people reviewing statistics, reviewing numbers and also talking to people in the military to find out whether or not the group was deserving of the money,” the presumptive Republican nominee told reporters.

He continued, “I wanted to keep it private because I don’t think it’s anybody’s business if I want to send money to the vets.” READ MORE OF THIS STORY
