DES MOINES, Iowa - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has launched a new website for collecting donations to veterans ahead of his event on Thursday evening.

The link, which Trump posted on Twitter, includes the seal of the Donald J. Trump Foundation, and a form for contributions.

It says that 100 percent of donations will go directly to veterans' needs.

Trump has chosen to skip Thursday night's final GOP debate before Monday's Iowa caucuses. He is holding a dueling event on the Drake University campus at the same time.

Meanwhile, Iowa fast-food workers calling for $15-an-hour wages say they'll stage a day of demonstrations ahead of the debate.

Workers from restaurants including McDonald's walked off the job for the day Thursday.

Activists say the daylong series of protests will culminate with a march to the Iowa Events Center and rally at the debate site, where they hope to draw at least 1,000 low-wage workers.
