US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks about his support for veterans at the Trump Tower on May 31, 2016 in New YorkThe presumptive Republican presidential nominee, who has a thin skin when it comes to perceived slights in the media, slammed the press for questioning his claim to have raised $6 million on one night in Iowa in January. The former reality TV star annihilated 16 rivals in the race to sew up the Republican nomination for the White House, and is trailing Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton by just a few percentage points in recent polls. Last January, he skipped a Republican debate hosted by Fox News in a row over the television channel's perceived bias and instead hosted a fundraising event for veterans' charities.
