Donald Trump is donating the first three months of his salary to the National Park Service
But some people have found a bit of a contradiction with that.
Donald Trump has donated his salary for the first three months as US president to the National Park Service.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer showed reporters a cheque for $78,333.32 – which is Trump’s pay from “January 20 noon forward” – which he handed over to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.
During the presidential campaign, Trump did say that if he was elected he wouldn’t take his annual $400,000 salary.
His supporters have been full of praise for him.
However some have pointed out that this donation doesn’t quite balance out Trump’s recent proposal for cutting 12% from the Interior Department’s budget.
