Donald TrumpDonald TrumpChelsea Clinton attends Muslim solidarity rally in NYC Pentagon chief: 'I don’t have any issues with the press' Kasich: The media is 'an important part of democracy' MORE has made good on his threat to schedule his own event at the same time as Thursday's GOP presidential debate on Fox News.
The real estate mogul's campaign said Tuesday he would sit out the debate due to concerns about “bias” from Fox News anchor and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.
But Trump blamed a statement the network issued for his choice not to participate, insisting it wasn't the Kelly feud.
At a pre-rally press conference Tuesday, Trump told reporters he planned to organize a charity event for the Wounded Warrior Project to help injured war veterans, but it remained unclear if the organization was involved in the special event unveiled Wednesday.
Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said on Laura Ingraham's radio program that the event would be used to raise funds for multiple veterans organizations.
Lewandowski didn't offer details about when planning for the event started.
