By Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump sharply criticized the news media on Monday for asking questions about what happened to contributions he raised for U.S. military veterans groups. "The press should be ashamed of themselves," Trump said. Trump turned the microphone over briefly to Al Baldasaro, a Trump supporter and a veteran from New Hampshire who also skewered the news media, saying reporters should "get your head out of your butt and focus on the real issues." Trump read out a list of veterans' organizations that had received money from the January event, which he attended instead of participating in a Fox News-sponsored candidates' debate.
