WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Tuesday all of the nearly $6 million he raised for veterans groups has been "paid out."

At a news conference held to announce the recipients of the donations, Trump said he gave a million dollars to that effort, which he announced four months ago when he hosted a fundraiser for veteran groups.
