Remember this Trump promise? He said he would not take a salary while serving as POTUS. I guess he has to take a token $1 salary, but he’s keeping his promise.
“That’s no big deal for me, I don’t need the money.”
President Trump’s 1st quarter salary was donated to the National Park Service. Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke said the money would go toward the deferred maintenance on the nation’s battlefields.
And today we learn that President Trump’s 2nd quarter salary will go to the Department of Education and will be used to host a STEM camp for students at the DOE!
Honestly my first reaction when I heard the money would go to the Federal Dept of Education was “Why them?” The federal government has no business being in education why encourage them? There is absolutely no mention of a federal role in education in the Constitution. But on further consideration as long as we have a federal DOE this is a good place to donate the money.
President Trump has signed an executive order to review the federal role in Education and has charged Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to study federal overreach in education. If you have kids or grandkids in the public schools you know there is quite a bit of overreach!
