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.”

    Trump is being played as a massive liar for rounding $5.6M to $6M, yet Hillary tells stories of landing under fire and she gets a pass. Bill accosts women all over the country, and Hillary “Stands by her man”, lies about it to Congress and the courts, gets IMPEACHED, yet he gets a pass. The Obama Opaque Administration lies about Obama care, the actual un-employment numbers, their treaty with Iran, and they get a pass. Good thing the media has no bias.

      You do recall Brian Williams? He was let go for sensationalizing a story the same way Hitler-y did. Patrais was fired and fined for the same thing Hitler-y did and in a manner that hurt no one. Hitler-y private server was just that if we tried that we would be vaporized this was governmental business and not private. Who give a crap about Hitlery-s private server but when you include our operatives then thats life threatening, and thats treason. You democrats think its alright to give away to the world our top secrets.

        Please tell you were not including me in with the “you democrats” . While I did have a brief flirtation with Democrats (I was registered as one from 88 to 92 but really never voted as one) I have since matured and realized the error of my ways.

        • Dennis B Anderson

          I was also a democrat when I was popping zits on my face.
          Back then the democratic part were for the middle class working people. Now days they are forcing hamburger joints to pay a wage that was previously for the skilled working middle class. You know that house with 2 cars in the garage. The middle class jobs are all gone something like 180 million healthy people out of work. Obama is still dropping his shorts to the mexican illegals. The hamburger stand jobs were for the elderly and the young not main stream stats. Obama should be protecting our borders instead of playing with himself in public bathrooms. Its obvious to me this Heshes bread isnt quite baked yet.

    As always, Mr Good Hair is lying out his ass.

      I hate to say anything, don’t want to confuse you with facts, but here’s something to chew on.
      He has never discussed sending his private jet to NC to fly 200 Gulf War vets because the military screwed up. Two flights, never asked for a penny. One of the recipients told the story. His 7/11 was referring to a Fire Department http://americannews.com/nyc-fire-department-releases-shocking-statement-about-trump-regarding-the-7-11-incident/
      0b0 let Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi rot in a Mexican jail for 214 days. Two republicans in congress finally got him out, and Trump gave him $25,000 to get his life in order. Trump is a big braggart about himself, but he did not brag about the things he does for others, now he has to because of bs like yours.

      • Elaine

        reggie, that is the way Trump is. He does things because he is a good person and his acts come from his heart, not for the glowing credit and accolades.

  • kathy diamond

    He’s damned if he does & Damned if he doesn’t. YES, The sleezy press is causing a lot of unnecessary troubles. Maybe it’s up to US, The Trump supporters to start jumping on their case by the millions

  • George Durdin

    The headline to the story reads “Press Attacks Trump Again” which is CLEARLY misleading if you saw the news conference. The TRUTH is that Trump once again attacked the press,as he has in the past, when he was appropriately questioned by the press about his fund raising for veterans groups. Trump has used the fund raising effort since January and as late as this past Sunday as a campaign ploy to attract votes from veterans. Trump is no longer a private citizen that doesn’t have to answer to the questions of the FREE press…..he is running for the president of the United States and it is the presses Constitutional right to vet Trump and inform the electorate of the candidates history and background so that they can make an informed decision. Once again Trump insists on bullying his way through the electoral process and it is going to cost him dearly in the end. He is letting his pride and ego destroy his campaign.

      Why isn’t clinton being asked to explain the $500,000 she received from around 200 Pakistani businessmen, in Beaumont, Tx, last January. Why isn’t she questioned about her part, as SoS in facilitating 20% of our uranium to Uranium One, owned by Russia. Why isn’t she questioned about the US foreign aid donation to Ukraine, and the subsequent donation by Ukraine to the clinton foundation.

      • George Durdin

        You apparently haven’t noticed that the broadcast media in this country are all owned by liberal progressive mass media corporations that use them to spread their propaganda and brainwashing. ABC is owned by the liberal Disney Corporation, CBS by Viacom, NBC, CNBC, MSNBS owned by Time Warner and previously held by wacko Ted Turner and CNN owned by liberal cable giant Comcast. These are not the kind of people that Trump is going get anywhere with by chewing them a new backside……in fact they can only make it worse BUT of course Trump hasn’t considered this because he insists on continuing to run his mouth.

  • Anouk

    Trump is showing more and more presidential. He has to be our next President of the United States of America.

    • Kanawah

      More and more presidential like when Pol Pot was president of Cambodia.

      To call Trump a worthless piece of elephant crap is to insult the elephant, even though the republicans have been doing that for years.

      Trump takes it to a new and disgusting level.

      • Bob

        To call Trump a worthless piece of elephant crap is to insult the elephant,…” leave Hillary out of this

  • itsfun

    A politician demanding the press tell the truth. A truly new idea. I love that he doesn’t just bow down to the press and kiss their hind ends. Isn’t it about time the press reported the news and all the facts instead of acting like they don’t know what was said or done. Then they make up things and hide behind our Constitution. The Constitution was never meant to be a way for anyone to hide behind lies and made up stories. For some reason the newspapers seem to think they know better who should be the next President then us citizens.

    Why aren’t they questioning hitlery about the $500,000 she raised from a group of Pakistani businessmen? One of many sources: “The event was held by Pakistani businessman Tahir Javed and Hillary raised approximately $500,000 by pandering to Muslims, making it “one of the top five private fundraisers Clinton has had in this country.” rightwingnews.com/democrats/6-people-greeted-clinton-texas-thats-not-real-story-look-met/#ixzz4AJsb9F40

    • Elaine

      Questioning Hitlery about anything that involves her being moral, ethical, generous, or honest is out of their wheelhouse.

  • 1947goldenjet

    Doesn’t it make you wonder how much money the Clinton Foundation has give to the various veterans’ organizations?

    • reggie

      Hmmm, let me see, oh well, ah, that was a very good question and I was proud to answer it. Next question?

      • 1947goldenjet

        Well said. I visualized the stammering and stuttering that went along with those words. It is amazing how our fair and unbiased press has not thought to ask that question considering the recent holiday.

        • reggie

          if it wasn’t such a serious issue for our country, she could be a stand-up comedienne playing the parts of Bevis and Butthead talking to each other.

          • 1947goldenjet

            No chortle, no chuckle, straight to guffaw. Nice imagery.

    • PatriotGal

      1947, there was some female Dem strategist on TV last night when asked what did KILLary do for Vets, who said that KILLary partnered with McCain to raise $50,000 for the Vets some years ago. WOW! $50,000 – that must have been when she and Bill were “broke”, I bet.
      TRUMP 2016!!

      • 1947goldenjet

        Thanks for the info. It would be nice to see to which organizations the money went to and how long it took the money to get there. Just some of the questions our ever inquisitive press demanded to know from Trump. I can’t stand unfair play. It smacks of bullyism (I can make up words with the best of them).

      • reggie

        I found this, but “worked” is worth about as much as hot air. I can’t find where any of them actually were even voted on. BTW, I worked on earning $1 million.

        • Elaine

          I had kind of a hard time reading this with a straight face! She sure paints a rosy picture of herself. I think she believes that her saying she does something counts as actually doing it.

    • Elaine

      Nah, I don’t wonder. Because the answer is a big, fat ZERO. Everything they “donate” goes back into the Clinton Foundation. They are their own favorite charity.

      • 1947goldenjet

        You’re most likely right. If you or I tried declaring donations on our tax returns and indicated that we were the recipients, we’d end up in jail. One of the problems with getting older is that you see and know more that you just can’t abide by.

        • Elaine

          We’re getting “older and wiser”! I wish I knew at age 21, what I know now.

          • 1947goldenjet

            I was considered an angry young man in the day just knowing what I knew then. It boggles my imagination just to think what I would’ve been if I knew then what I know now. Saints preserve us.

    POS media. PABtches.

  • Patrick Driscoll

    ONCE AGAIN TRUMP IS RIGHT AND I HOPE HE WILL HOLD YOUR UGLY ASSES TO THE FIRE. YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN YOUR MISSION TO PRESENT THE NEWS AND NOT TO STEER IT!

    • Elaine Morris

      As far as I am concerned? He needs to file a lawsuit against them.

      • Kanawah

        So he can cry about the judge not being fair to him when his ass is drop kicked out of the court house?

    • Reasoned thinker

      Patrick Driscoll — I totally agree! Go Trump 2016.

      • Kanawah

        Yes, go Trump, TO HELL.

        • Ken says

          You Ted and Heidi Cruz Trolls don’t give up.

        • Wanda

          Well, that is where you are trying to take this country.

    • Kanawah

      Patrick.
      What are you drinking? Tainted Trump “kook-aid”.

  • Patrick Driscoll

    The press is embarrassing as they enter each interview with questions that support their agenda or perceptions. Difficult to watch and listen to, but most Real Americans see them as disgusting and in violation of their supposed professional code. Now they are just bitches of the left. They are either loons or retarded or both. ASSHOLES….YOUR JOB IS TO OBJECTIVELY REPORT THE NEWS…..YOU DO IT AS THERE IS ONLY ONE CORRECT ANSWER THAT SUPPORTS YOUR CORRUPT PERCEPTIONS. REPORT THE NEWS AND DO NOT INTERPRET IT BASED ON YOU BELIEFS. YOU ARE AN ABORTION AND SHOULD BE FIRED. JOIN A POLITICAL GROUP OR SHUT THE FUCK-UP.
    YOU ARE JUST CORRUPT TO THE CORE. IF REGAN WERE ALIVE, HE WOULD FIRE ALL OF YOU. YOU ARE USLESS AS TITS ON A BULL.
    HOPE THE ASSHOLE ON THE WH IS PAYING YOU. WOULD SUGGEST YOU LET BLOW JOB BILL DO THE BJS FROM NOW ON, AS YOU IDIOTS SUCK.

    • Elaine Morris

      IF you have the extra time on your hands, go to any search engine to see “WHO” was/is backing HIllary….nevermind on that one, George Soros backs Clinton.
