    Trump Details Donations to Veterans' Charities

    Under pressure to account for money he claimed to raise for veterans, an angry and irritated Donald Trump listed charities Tuesday he says have now received millions of dollars from a fundraiser he held in January.

    Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, told reporters at a testy news conference in New York that the fundraiser, held at the same time as a Fox News GOP debate he was boycotting, raised $5.6 million. He previously had declined to disclose which charities had received the funds, and his campaign has gone back and forth about how much was raised.

    "The money's all been sent," Trump said at a press conference at Trump Tower Tuesday morning, where he lashed out at the press for making the money an issue.

    Trump went on to list the organizations that received checks from him and how much money he said each received.

    NBC News has confirmed at least 27 charities received those donations, totaling $3,820,000 in confirmed contributions
