Billionaire mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has proposed that CNN donate the revenue it makes from ad sales during the second GOP debate to U.S. veterans.

In a letter to CNN President Jeff Zucker, Trump noted the first GOP debate on Fox News had an audience of nearly 24 million, and as a result, CNN raised its rates for ad sales during the Sept. 16 debate by 4,000%. Trump also claimed that the “tremendous increase in viewer interest and advertising is 100% due to ‘Donald J. Trump.'”

“I believe that all profits from this broadcast should go to various VETERANS groups,” Trump wrote. “The veterans of our country, our finest people, have been treated horribly by the government and it’s ‘all talk and no action’ politicians.”

Trump, who noted that he is funding his own campaign, also wrote that he has “always felt that we have to be helping our veterans far more than we do.”

“That is why my campaign is so focused on these great people who have done so much for us,” Trump explained. “This large contribution of many millions of dollars would be a truly wonderful thing for CNN to do.”

According to The New York Times, Trump said that during his time at the New York Military Academy, a prep school where his parents enrolled him to correct poor behavior, he “always felt that I was in the military.”

Trump, who received several draft deferments during the Vietnam War and has never served in the military, also claimed that the prep school gave him “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.”

Trump also gained attention in June when he was asked about Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), and he said that McCain’s prisoner-of-war status kept him from being a war hero.

“He’s not a war hero,” Trump said. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

According to the results of CNN/ORC poll published on Thursday, Trump maintains his spot as the GOP frontrunner and has surged to 32% support.
