President Trump Donates Salary to VA

US President Donald Trump has donated his $100,000 Quarterly salary to the Department of Veterans Affairs, the White House announced Thursday.

The money will be to the VA’s caregiver program.

President Trump is donating his salary each quarter to “important projects,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

In the past, the money has gone to a variety of projects, including repairs to the Antietam National Battlefield in Maryland, infrastructure improvements and to fight the opioid crisis.

Acting Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie attended Thursday’s press briefing to accept the donation.

Secretary Wilkie said the money will be used for mental health and peer support programs, financial aid and research to assist those who care for veterans.

“The President’s gift underscores his promise to do all he can for vets, which includes supporting those who care for veterans,” Secretary Wilkie said. “Not just those of us at VA, but the husbands, the wives, the families and the community caregivers who are out there day in and day out.”
