DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Donald Trump has presented a $100,000 check to a charity that provides service dogs to wounded veterans.
The money is the first disbursement of the $6 million that Trump says he raised Thursday night at an event he staged after deciding to boycott the last GOP debate before the Iowa caucuses because of a spat with Fox News.
Representatives from the Puppy Jake Foundation accepted the check in a photo op Saturday night at the Adler Theater in Davenport, Iowa, where Trump was interviewed on stage by Jerry Falwell Jr. The evangelical leader and president of Liberty University endorsed Trump last week.
Falwell says it’s “unbelievable” to see “a presidential candidate on the campaign trail giving money away.”
