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.


Jesus Christ. Absolutely no shame. There is no end to the depths these parasites will stoop to.

I feel he should send it to whatever organizations will be assisting those in Mosul or Aleppo rebuild their communities, and not the corrupt Red Cross who bloats their administrators to absorb much of the funds.

Mostly because $400,000 will go much farther in either of those cities then they would here in America. In this country with our leaders, $400,000 will merely pay for an impact study on the necessity of a 1/4 mile of sidewalk that ends up not even being built.

And every rational person would think that he should donate to a charity that doesn't derive more than 30% of it's revenue from performing abortions. Though in PP's case, that could even be as high as 50%... if they were less vague with their figures. But hey, the only infallible institution is the one you support amiright?

He should buy the world a Coke.

He needs to donate it to Women for Women or any anti-abuse charity for women.

Got it! Anyone who disagrees with you is "irrational".

Considering Trump must be getting millions in pension from the Trump organization and Hollywood, he does not need to keep any of his presidential salary. This is good for PR.

Trump better specify between which Media.... the Fake-News Originators of MSM

or the Alternative Media who helped mobilize the pent up Main-Street American Voters who were force-fed a world of surreal propaganda issued forth by the Globalist elites...

for all we know the MSM, like CNN, would funnel the Trump annual compensation-as-President to Idiotic things like gender-neutral public "Restroom Stalls without Doors"
(which is just the same thing as the Obama 'Open Borders' policy...just on a more sensitive & personal level)

I can't believe some of the replies I'm seeing.

The White House Press Corps will act like this.

It's a bone for them to chew on while he goes back to work.

He doesn't need to donate it at all.

Health, energy, and food action programs. Or can the President only make gameshow like limitations? 1 charity?

In reality it will probably go to Trump Steaks For the Homeless. It's like you people forget who the other half of the media is. Doesn't Trump just dis-invite CNN and stuff now too? Gee how honorable of him to vaguely attribute this choice to 'media'. Does this just mean Fox in his mind? Or what he decides to randomly watch on a specific day?

Man becomes President. Demands to watch TV as his method of interacting with the nation. You have to love it.


You also have to love how it being donated is 'no compensation'. And is now an issue. And he constantly refuses it blah-blah. The amount of snakes, you really think they will let his salary go? The easiest solution would be to do what is proposed: Just do not pay him; there; boom; done. The drama.

If he donated it to hungry kids the left would label him a child molester. Its insane that this is even an issue. And get this, liberals think he isn't keeping his promise to refuse a salary as president. What a way to twist the truth.

He said he wasn't going to take salary, how can he donate anything?

We may not have a king, but the fool is in place.

An extraordinarily good idea!!!

Shriners would be a good one, too.

Doctors w/o Borders, I've heard nothing bad about them...?

Or any of a dozen local charities that desperately need money to help them help others.

Exactly. And a half joking middle finger to the media in the process. At least, that's how I'm reading it.

As I understand it you cannot refuse to take a salary, you can choose to donate it all... which he said he would do some time back.

3 U.S. Code § 102 - Compensation of the President requires the U.S. government to pay a salary to the president. There is no legal way for Trump to stop said payment.

Donation is his only option.
