There are notable exceptions, like benzylic carbocations, but for the most part they function as electron withdrawing groups. Not quite. A phenyl group is almost always slightly electron donating by induction. Aniline makes the benzene ring a better nucleophile, because its lone pair is in conjugation with the ring.

Benzene usually undergo nucleophilic aromatic substitution in which the hydrogen atom is replaced.in this reaction benzene act as a nucleophile as it contains greater electron density and thus act as a electron donating group.
