Five months ago, Trump said that he "gave" (past tense) $1,000,000 to veterans groups. According to the vet groups, it wasn't received. The day after reporters came to Trump and asked him about HIS donation, Trump "pledged" a million dollars. We still don't know that Dishonest Donald actually gave his donation -- or will. He may just renege on this promise like he reneges on other promises.

Is it your assertion that there weren't many politically motivated negative news articles about this issue?

If it is, a quick Google search will prove differently.
Five months isn't enough time? Maybe they should have waited until after November.

Then he starts calling people losers, fools and crazy. His groupies will be besides themselves with joy. They do love the verbal diarrhea and the mean-girl name calling.
The media and Hillary wanted to know and have been asking how much he raised and where it went.
Today Trump answers and they don't like the way he answered. It makes all those who questioned and implied there was something improper look like fools.

He held up a copy of his check the press conference.

It really must cause you pain to give him credit for doing something good.

I'm from a military family and am married to Vietnam combat vet. I wanted to know how much money was raised and where it went. Since Trump was not forthcoming.....I relied on the press to find out. Trump was silent for months then went off on the press for doing their job. For that...they get called names by a guy who thinks he's a special snowflake who should be above scrutiny.

And his groupies continue to make excuses for a guy who acts like a self-centered six-year-old with no self control.

He chose some worthy charities. (At least one is "iffy" and has been investigated for giving more money to fund-raisers than vets.) He should have treated the occasion with dignity, or released the information on-line, instead of turning it into his usual "Look at meeeeeee!" circus of name-calling and foot-stomping.

All too many of the Kool Aid drinkers are missing the main point, we're observing how our potential president handles adversity. Unfortunately, at least so far, Trump is a brawler, his defensive posture is to come back with adolescent pejoratives. I have to ask how he might handle delicate diplomatic situations, although his ardent followers call it political correctness, diplomacy is expected by serious world leaders. To be taken seriously, you have to behave seriously. Nobody wants to destroy the oligarchy we're under more than me, but Trump's behavior is really disquieting.
