"All of the money has been spent." Trump said he didn't release the names of the veterans organizations sooner because he wanted to respect their privacy. He insisted that the money for a number of these groups was delivered some time ago. The businessman said veterans groups had been thanking him and that one gentleman was so overcome with joy that he was crying. Trump spent several minutes reading out the list of veterans organizations that he said received the money from him and his friends. He said that, among others, "22 Kill" received $220,000; "Green Beret Foundation" got $350,000; and American Hero Adventures took $100,000. Trump named several prominent businessmen who he said joined him in donating to the veterans groups, specifically singling out billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn for giving $500,000 and that Treasure Island casino owner Phil Ruffin for donating $1 million. Trump berated the media throughout the press conference, saying the political press are "among the most dishonest people I've ever met."Instead of appearing in a Fox News debate with his presidential competitors on Jan. 28 in Iowa, Trump hosted a rally to raise money for veterans organizations. As a veteran this is the way I look at it, at least Trump unlike the other remaining presidential candidates brings the issues that veterans face in America to the table. Trump has stated along the lines that veterans get treated like crap in America, when people like illegal aliens and asylum seekers get all the help. For to long in America veterans issues have been put last, just look at the horrible healthcare system of the VA our veterans die waiting for service in these hospitals. I'll tell the mainstream news this, hey at least Trump is willing to help unlike Hillary, Bernie, and you pathetic news pundits who would never help what so ever.
