Here’s more from The Week:
“On Monday, President Trump became the first president to donate his entire first-quarter salary to the National Park Service. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke accepted the check, worth $78,333.32, and announced it would go toward the neglected maintenance of battlefield national parks
Trump vowed during the presidential campaign that he would not take a salary in office. While presidents are required to receive a paycheck, a spokesperson for the White House said in February that Trump would give the money “back to the Treasury or [donate it].”
Trump’s 2018 budget proposes a 12 percent cut to the Department of Interior, worth approximately $1.5 billion. Jeva Lange”
We’re so grateful to President Trump for keeping yet another promise!
