U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump holds up a list of veterans groups he says he has donated to during a news conference at Trump Tower in the Manhattan borough of New YorkBy Emily Flitter and Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Tuesday detailed $5.6 million in contributions he raised for military veterans, and staged a fiery news conference where he denigrated reporters for questioning him about what happened to the money. Appearing at Trump Tower in Manhattan, the billionaire accused the media of failing to give him credit for raising the funds at an event in January in Iowa.

US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks about his support for veterans at the Trump Tower on May 31, 2016 in New YorkDonald Trump stepped up his assault on the US media Tuesday, branding the political press "dishonest," calling one journalist "a sleaze" and promising more such attacks if elected US president. The former reality TV star, prolific on Twitter with two million more followers than Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, has dominated coverage of the 2016 presidential cycle like no other by calling personally into television shows and frequently holding court at press conferences broadcast live nationwide. The New York tycoon, who was dismissed as a joke when he launched his campaign, annihilated 16 rivals in the race to sew up the Republican nomination and is trailing Clinton by just a few percentage points in recent polls.
