Donald Trump today attacked the news media after finally releasing information about the televised fundraiser for veterans he held in January to compete with a Fox News debate with other presidential contenders. Telling reporters he "wanted to keep it private," Trump explained, "because I don't think it's anybody's business if I want to send money to the vets but I have to say this. I raised close to $6 million, it'll probably be over that amount. As of this moment its $5.6 million."
He called one reporter a "sleaze" for asking him at the news conference when he actually donated $1 million of his own money. The Washington Post, led the way in trying to determine where the money actually went -- and when.
