Des Moines, IA - Donald Trump says his foundation has raised $5 million for veterans ahead of a rally he’d holding as he boycotts the final GOP debate before Monday’s Iowa caucuses.

In an interview with reporters on his plane before his Thursday night event at Drake University, Trump said he’s putting up $1 million of his own money that many of his wealthy friends are giving large-dollar contributions as well.

Angry over an escalating feud with debate host Fox News, Trump is hosting the rally at the same time as the debate being held just a couple miles away.

Earlier Thursday, Trump launched a new website for collecting donations: donaldtrumpforvets.com. Contributions to the site will go to The Donald J. Trump Foundation, Trump’s nonprofit charitable organization.

The page says: “100 percent of your donations will go directly to Veterans needs.”
