President Trump Donates His Fourth-Quarter Salary to Department of Transportation

By Ivan Pentchoukov

President Donald Trump donated his fourth-quarter salary to the Department of Transportation, according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The president regularly donates his quarterly salary to government departments working on causes he supports. Trump gave $100,000 to the Department of Health and Human Services in the third quarter to battle the opioid crisis.

He donated his first and second-quarter salary to the Department of Education and the National Park Service.

“Today, the president is proud to donate his fourth-quarter 2017 salary to the Department of Transportation to support their programs to rebuild and modernize our crumbling infrastructure,” Sanders said.

Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao accepted the $100,000 check from Sanders during the daily press briefing.

The Department of Transportation is working with 12 federal agencies on a comprehensive infrastructure plan unveiled by Trump on Monday.

“The goal of the president’s proposal is to stimulate at least $1.5 trillion in infrastructure investment, which includes a minimum of $200 billion of direct federal funding,” Chao said.

The White House infrastructure plan would use federal funds as a seed to attract state, local and private investments. Another part of the plan would cut the red tape slowing down the approval process for infrastructure projects.

The salary for U.S. presidents is $400,000.
