Trump Donates $100,000 to Repair Monuments Damaged by Rioters


President Trump is donating $100,000 of his presidential salary to repair monuments that were damaged over the months by rioters.


The funds, which equate to a quarter of his annual presidential pay, will be funneled to the U.S. National Park service.


“I promised YOU I would not take a dime of salary as your President. I donate the entire $400,000! It is my honor to give $100,000 to @NatlParkService to help repair and restore our GREAT National Monuments. So important to our American History! Thank You!!”




Here’s where Trump has donated his presidential salary so far, broken up into quarters:


2017

Q1 National Parks Service

Q2 Department of Education

Q3 Health and Human Services

Q4 Department of Transportation


2018

Q1 Department of Veterans Affairs

Q2 Small Business Administration

Q3 National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism

Q4 Department of Homeland Security


2019

Q1 Department of Agriculture

Q2 U.S. Surgeon General’s Office

Q3 Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health

Q4 Department of Health and Human Services


That last donation in 2019 (fiscal year, the calendar year was 2020) to the Department of Health and Human Services was, according to President Trump and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, specifically intended to advance research in combatting the spread of COVID-19.




To be fair, he hasn’t donated 100% of his salary, which critics are often quick to note. But, by law, he has to take some of his salary. So, President Trump has kept $1 each year from his presidential salary.


What a miser.
