Donald Trump: CNN Should Donate All Debate Proceeds to Veterans

Next week, CNN will host the second Republican presidential debate. CNN has been profiting on Trump-mania by charging 40 times their normal rate for the September 16th debate. As a result, Donald Trump wrote a letter to the news network's president, Jeff Zucker, to urge him to donate some of the proceeds. Trump writes “While I refuse to brag, this tremendous increase in viewer interest and advertising is due 100% to ‘Donald J. Trump.’”

With the record-setting audience for the first GOP debate on Fox News, Trump says he believes CNN’s audience “will be even larger.” In the letter, Trump tells Zucker “I believe that all profits from this broadcast should go to various VETERANS groups, a list of which I will send to you in the near future. The veterans of our country, our finest people, have been treated horribly by our government and its ‘all talk and no action’ politicians. In fact some would say they are treated like third class citizens—even worse, in many cases, than illegal immigrants. It is about time that someone comes to their aid. Let’s start now!” Zucker has yet to respond.
