Republican presumptive Presidential nominee Donald Trump held a press conference in New York on Tuesday morning to outline his recent donations to veterans’ organizations. For much of the 50-minute event, he attacked his treatment by the “dishonest” press.

Trump is blaming the press now because reporters asked where the money he raised for vets went.

Trump says he "didn't want credit" for the vet donations, except he made a major TV event out of it

I think Donald Trump did the equivalent of “running out of X-Boxes” to create a media storm. He’s good at this PR stuff.

Most amazing thing about Trump’s presser on his contributions is that it’s one of the few times that he’s actually being held accountable.

We'll never need a leak of Trump's enemies list. He announces it publicly.
