US President Donald Trump will donate his $400,000 (£329,620) salary to charity at the end of 2017, his spokesman has confirmed.

And in an unexpected twist, he wants the White House press corps to decide where it should go.

Before taking office, Mr Trump told CBS's 60 Minutes that he would not claim his presidential salary.

I think the national debt is a pretty good choice. If nothing more than a symbolic gesture.

I'm betting they choose Organizing For Action though.

I suggest the Obama library, or maybe Planned Parenthood.

Pretty sad he has to let the media decide to avoid the next hit-piece on him. He could donate it to cancer research or hungry kids and they would still twist it against him somehow. Smart move Trump, now they can only blame themselves.

It cannot be a PAC. It has to be a charity.

Yes it is pretty sad. It was sad when it was done to Obama for the last eight years also. Do you agree?

Does this mean he can claim he is not a "paid public servant"?

He could donate it to my charity - Irises for Islam, 503C.

I need the money...

The media should urge Trumpy to donate his salary either to Planned Parenthood, or The Gender Trust.

He is paid. He simply does not keep the pay.

I'd assume they will donate it to their partners in crime.......the DNC.

Trump plans to donate salary, despite pledge not to take one

They're actually trying to spin him donating his salary as a bad thing.

According to Kellyanne Conway, he plans to donate his salary at the end of the year. That means he is collecting his monthly paycheck.

He cannot refuse the earnings, however he can do as both Kennedy and Hoover did and donate the payment.

Either add it to his wall building fund or take it to Vegas and let it ride on red 18.

No....just no.
Homeless Veterans or even just the homeless.

Of course they are.
If Trump saved a choking person's life by performing the Heimlich, they would spin it as a bad thing.
