Donald Trump announced this week he would skip Thursday's GOP debate and instead hold an event to raise money for wounded veterans. Trump tweeted out a link to a donation site on Thursday:

It is my great honor to support our Veterans with you! You can join me now. Thank you! #Trump4Vets https://t.co/UVn3kUd2DV

But wait, who is pictured in the background?

This isn't the first time this week Trump has done this. Earlier this week, a Trump video on veterans featured Russian veterans.
