Donald Trump fired back Tuesday at reports questioning his fundraising haul from a high-profile veterans event in January, releasing an extensive list of charities he said received the donations — and slamming the media for questioning him.
During a press conference at Trump Tower, the presumptive Republican nominee said he’s raised $5.6 million and more is coming in.
He rattled off the list of charities and the amounts they received, while taking scathing and sometimes-personal shots at the media for pressuring him to disclose the information.
“I have never received such bad publicity for doing such a good job,” Trump said. He added, “The press should be ashamed of themselves.”
