President Trump is keen to donate his presidential salary to charity and he wants our help to decide where it goes.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said President Donald Trump wants the public and the press corps to help him decide where it goes.
That’s right – we can make suggestions.
On the campaign trail, Trump pledged to forgo the presidential compensation — which totals $400,000 per year – but, according to a report from NBC News over the weekend, the White House has yet to provide any evidence that Trump is declining the salary.
During his daily briefing Monday, Spicer told reporters that the president plans to donate all $400,000 to charity at the end of the year. The spokesman also jabbed the press corps, saying Trump wants their advice on where the money should go so he can “avoid scrutiny.”
Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts took to Twitter to suggest Trump donate his salary either to the Fisher House Foundation, which builds homes near military and Veterans’ Affairs hospitals for families to stay in while their loved ones are receiving care, or the TAPS Organization, which aides those grieving the death of a loved one who served in the U.S. military.
