On Monday President Trump revealed he has donated a quarter of his $400,000 annual paycheck to the Department of Homeland Security.

During his bid for the presidency, Trump revealed he wouldn’t be accepting his annual $400,000 salary and would instead donate the money if elected. Since taking office Trump has donated his salary to various federal departments, including Education and Veterans Affairs.


The president took to Twitter to share the news, tweeting a photo of the $100,000 check with the caption, “While the press doesn’t like writing about it, nor do I need them to, I donate my yearly Presidential salary of $400,000.00 to different agencies throughout the year, this to Homeland Security. If I didn’t do it there would be hell to pay from the FAKE NEWS MEDIA!”
