There was good reason to believe that the $1 million Donald Trump was supposed to give to veterans would never end up in the hands of any actual veterans. First of all the claim came from a very dubious source: “Donald Trump gave $1 million,” Trump said in late January.
Now, four months later, the Washington Post decided to see if it could find any traces of Trump’s alleged donation, and found nothing. Trump responded by finally ponying up this week and calling the reporter a “really nasty guy,” which is apparently a synonym for “someone who expects Donald Trump to tell the truth.”
In his defense, Trump points out that that he’s helped veterans out a lot before — mostly by appearing in ISIS recruiting tapes.
