Donald Trump recently received his 3rd quarter paycheck and, as he does with all of his presidential salary, donated it to a worthy cause.
The President earns $400,000 a year, which he is required to accept. But since he’s been in office, he has donated each $100,000 check. This time he’s signed the paycheck over to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health to assist in fighting the opioid epidemic. (The Hill)
- Trump previously said that if he didn’t give away his salary he would get destroyed by the press.
- He has said many times that being president is costing him a lot of money.
- He’s not losing any money by donating his salary. He still has his business.
