Rep. Wagner sends campaign donation from Trump to VFW post
BALLWIN (AP) - A member of Missouri's Republican congressional delegation said she sent a $1,000 campaign donation from Donald Trump to a Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner's decision, announced Tuesday, came after the businessman and Republican presidential candidate's comments about Arizona Sen. John McCain and McCain's experience as a tortured prisoner of war in Vietnam.
Wagner said she has never met Trump and did not solicit his donation before the 2014 election. She sent the money to the VFW post in Ballwin, a St. Louis suburb that is part of her district.
