Where is Trump Spending His Paychecks?

It was during Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016 that he had made the promise to donate his salary as the President of the United States to various causes around the nation.

He would not draw the usual salary that a President would be paid.

After the election he is has stated, “I’m not going to take the salary.”

This should have been a sign to everyone that the President tells the truth.

Something that has once again been verified when the Mueller report came out.

During a 60 Minutes interview the President said, “I think I have to by law take $1, so I’ll take $1 a year.”

The normal salary for a president is $400,000 a year that must be paid twice a month.

He is also not to receive any money from other sources while in offices.

The rules of the president’s office keeps him from not taking a salary.

So what he is doing is donating his salary once a quarter.

The Department of Education is to receive $100,000 of his salary.

In the previous quarter the President donated $78, 333 to restore parts of the Maryland’s Antietam National Battlefield.

This national park is one of the sights of the Civil War that was the worst. It was also the place of importance for the Union as it would become a significant victory.

Spicer has stated that, the president’s intention right now is to donate his salary at the end of the year, and he has kindly asked that you all help determine where that goes.

The way that we can avoid scrutiny is to let the press corps determine where it should go.”

The room would erupt with laughter. But he was serious.

In response Spicer has stated, “In all seriousness, I think his view is, he made a pledge to the American people, he wants to donate it to charity, and he’d love your help to determine where it should go.”

The press would present some options as the conversation moved forward.

David P. Curie states in regard to the President’s salary is not, “designed for the President’s benefit. Rather, it was created as insurance against bribery and corruption in the executive branch.”

Since 2001, the President of the United States has been paid $400,000 a year with a $50,000 expense account.

The expenses of the personal account cover things like food and dry cleaning and many other items.

The office is also granted $100,000 travel account and $19,000 for entertainment.

The president also gets free transportation, use of the limousine, Marine One, and Air Force One.

While living in the White House the president receives $100,000 to redecorate the premises.

The White House alone has 100 people that are employed full-time for the upkeep of the building.

The payroll of the employees runs about $4 million a year.

Any clothing that they were given must be donated to the national archive once it has been worn.

There have been several presidents that have donated their salary through the years.

President Trump has donated $400,000 to various federal departments.

His personal net worth is right at $3.1 billion.

John F Kennedy had donated $100,000 to about six different charities.

President Kennedy did inherit a valuable trust fund.

While he served in Congress it was reported that he donate all that money for the 14 years that he served in the congressional manner.

Early in the 1900’s Herbert Hoover took his salary and distributed it all to several charities around the region.

Some of his staff are reported to have received some of the money.

In 1913, he had a total net worth of $4 million.

This would account to a value of $103 million.

The very first President to donate his salary was none other than George Washington.

His salary was $25,000. In today’s value it would have been $716,017.

While Washington served as a military commander he donated all of that money as well.

George Washington set an example of what it means to be a president.

It is a person that is in the office not for personal gain, but to serve the people of the nation.
