President-elect Donald Trump stood by his promise to reject the presidential salary, during an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes.
“The answer is no,” he said, when asked about his campaign trail promise by CBS interviewer Lesley Stahl. “I think I have to take by law one dollar so I’ll take one dollar a year.”
He admitted that he didn’t even know what the salary was, but when he was told it was $400,000 salary he declined it.
“I’m not taking it,” he said.
He added that he would not be taking too many vacations either.
“There’s so much work to be done and I want to get it done for the people,” he said. “I want to get it done. We’re lowering taxes, we’re taking care of health care.”

Bill and Hillary took a salary for 8 years and still winded up broke according to Hillary.
That is broke compared to the hundreds of millions they funneled into overseas accounts.

Wait! I thought he was very greedy and only thought about himself.
I'm very confused.

Very commendable. I'm sure it will get spun somehow.
They will say it's some kind of IRS tax dodging trick.
Wait for it.
