Trump Donates $100K Paycheck to Coronavirus Fight

(New York Post) President Trump has donated his quarterly paycheck to efforts to contain the COVID-19 coronavirus.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Tuesday that Trump sent his $100,000 in pay to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Trump “is donating his 2019 Q4 salary to @HHSGov to support the efforts being undertaken to confront, contain, and combat #Coronavirus,” Grisham tweeted.

Trump is the third president to refuse a salary, following Herbert Hoover and John F. Kennedy. His quarterly gifts to the Treasury Department double as a messaging opportunity to highlight his initiatives.

The coronavirus gift won’t go far, however. Trump requested $2.5 billion for US efforts, but has publicly agreed to accept $8.5 billion offered by Democrats. White House budget officials say they believe the larger figure is intended to span multiple years.
