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

The link takes you to his site:

Donald Trump Veterans Site

But wait, who is pictured in the background?

It's "portrait of young soldier," a stock image of an Ukrainian actor.

The photographer, based in Ukraine, is Dmytro Konstantynov.

The site also occasionally rotates to different photos, which are also stock images of unclear origin.

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