Trump campaign says rally raised $6 million


Donald Trump's campaign says the rally he held instead of participating in Thursday's Republican debate raised more than $6 million for veterans.

In a statement after the rally, Trump's campaign added that if Fox News "wanted to join in that effort and make a contribution Mr. Trump would have welcomed that."

Fox had earlier issued a statement saying Trump had offered to appear at the debate "upon the condition" that Fox News contribute $5 million to his charities, which Fox said was not possible.

Trump told reporters before the rally that he had fielded multiple calls from Fox representatives and CEO Roger Ailes during the day.

Fox's statement said Ailes had three brief conversations with Trump on Thursday about possibly appearing at the debate, but "there were not multiple calls placed by Ailes to Trump."
