‘Trump donating pay to treasury’

Print Article

This is in response to Sylvia Lopez’s letter to the editor, “They pay more than president.”

President Trump’s presidential salary of $400,000 was refused by him. He will collect $1 per year as president. He is leaving $399,999 in the U.S. Treasury each year.

In the past Herbert Hoover and John F. Kennedy have also given up their presidential salaries.

Currently, another patriotic American (like President Trump) has given up her salary and receives $1 per year. She is Betsy DeVos, secretary of education.

Please learn all the facts before writing to the editor.
