The veracity of Trump's claim to have raised $6M for vets the night he skipped the Republican debate continues to be challenged, with almost no efforts on Trump's part to be transparent.
"Almost four months after promising $1 million of his own money to veterans’ causes, Donald Trump moved to fulfill that pledge Monday evening — promising the entire sum to a single charity as he came under intense media scrutiny.
"Trump, now the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, organized a nationally televised fundraiser for veterans’ causes in Des Moines on Jan. 28. That night, Trump said he had raised $6 million, including the gift from his own pocket."--David Fahrenthold, The Washington Post
