Trump donates first three months

of salary to Park Service

WASHINGTON (AP):

President Donald Trump is donating the first three months of his salary to the National Park Service.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer handed an oversized check for US$78,333.32 to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke during yesterday’s briefing.

The billionaire businessman turned president had promised to forgo his presidential salary. By law he must be paid, so he is donating the money. Taxpayers can write off such donations, potentially lowering their income taxes.

Zinke said he’s “thrilled” at the president’s decision to give money to an Interior agency, something he says Trump informed him about Sunday night.

He said he will use the money to help on long-deferred maintenance projects on the nation’s 25 battlefields.

Outstanding maintenance projects on those sites amount to about US$229 million, Zinke said.

Trump’s has proposed cutting 12 per cent from the Interior Department’s budget.
