Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, meanwhile, went on CNN and defended Trump's donations to veterans charities as well-intended, even as journalists criticized him for missing his $6 million goal: "I mean, if the only thing he did was donate a million dollars to the cause, that's pretty good isn't it?," Johnson said. "So, maybe, he didn't make the six million. I've certainly been involved in enough charities where sometimes it is a little difficult to collect the pledges. So, listen, you know, wonderful intention."

McCaskill: "Donald Trump, whose entire campaign can seem like an experiment in free media, was simply trying to keep a low profile when he held an impromptu, televised fundraiser for veterans groups back in January in lieu of attending a GOP primary debate. At least that's the story the presumptive Republican nominee was spinning to dozens of reporters gathered in the lobby of Trump Tower Tuesday morning - and to millions more watching the cable networks' live blanket coverage of the entire 40-minute press conference - as he chastised the media for failing to give him his due, blasting one reporter as a 'sleaze' and another as 'a real beauty.'" http://politi.co/1RJsJA7
