During the presidential campaign, Donald Trump made some promises to the American people. Of course, the left would love for Trump to screw it all up and back out of his promises. Well. that is hardly the case and Trump just fulfilled another campaign promise that has liberals furious.
If you remember correctly, Trump promised that he would not take a paycheck while in office. Trump as we all know, is a highly successful businessman and hardly needs the cash from the American people. Trump views his presidency not as a career choice, but as being a public servant.
Once Trump was in office he discovered that by law he is obliged to take the salary, and cannot change amount either. Trump determined to keep his promise took the salary, but decided to donate to charity. Using the media, Trump asked what was a worthy cause for his first check to go to. Today, it was revealed that Trump will donate his first three months of salary to the National Park Service.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a briefing, “The president has spoken with counsel and made the decision to donate his first-quarter salary to a government entity,”.
Spicer then handed a check for $78,333.32 for the National Park Service to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. Spicer said the paycheck starts from Jan. 20, when Trump took office, until now.
This is fantastic news and I think who Trump chose to donate his check to is perfect. The left has argued that Trump is this horrible evil man, but that is far from the truth. This donation is just another example of how Trump is determined to keep his campaign promises. Though it will be difficult for the left to complain about this I am sure they will find a way.
