Donald Trump Donates 4Q Salary to Department of Transportation

13 Feb 2018

President Donald Trump donated his fourth-quarter 2017 paycheck to the Department of Transportation, demonstrating his commitment to public infrastructure.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders presented the $100,000 check to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao at the daily press briefing on Tuesday.

Chao said that Donald Trump’s quarterly salary would go to the department’s INFRA (Infrastructure For Rebuilding America) Grant Programs.

“Infrastructure is the backbone of our economy, and it’s key to keeping our country competitive,” she said.

Chao and two transportation officials posed for a picture with the check.

Trump donated his quarterly salary to different institutions within the federal government, keeping his campaign promise to serve as president without a paycheck.

Previously he donated his paycheck to Department of Education, the National Park Service, and the Department of Health and Human Services combat to help fight the opioid epidemic.

"Trump donated his quarterly salary to different institutions within the federal government, keeping his campaign promise to serve as president without a paycheck."

That's Impressive!

I wonder if Moneybags Mitt would make such a pledge?

DeVos Donates Salary to Education, Special Needs Charities

A spokeswoman says Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will donate her nearly $200,000 salary to four charities focusing on education and special needs.

Department spokeswoman Liz Hill said in a statement Wednesday that DeVos’ one-year salary of $199,700 will be divided evenly among the four organizations.

One of the groups, Dreams Soar, works to encourage girls to pursue careers in the fields of science, engineering and mathematics. Another, Kids Hope USA, helps at-risk children. Vision to Learn provides eyeglasses to low-income children and Special Olympics helps children and adults with disabilities.

DeVos is married to Dick DeVos, the heir to the Amway marketing fortune. She travels around the country on her own private plane and foots the bill.

Every time someone talks about Buffett, Gates, Bezos, and their complaints that because of the tax system they don't pay their 'fair share', I ask why don't these hypocrites just give 'their fair share ' to the government? Instead they set up charitable foundations as tax shelters for passing on their wealth to their spawn and cohorts.

It's always the same with the tax and spend crowd. They love to avoid paying their share while at the same time placing an additional burden on others. TM

"What Mr. Obama never mentions is that he has surrounded himself with key advisors and selected key members of his Administration that are tax cheats. Never before has an Administration been so wholly composed of senior officials that push so stridently for increasing taxes on Americans, while they avoid any personal responsibility for paying their own personal taxes.
