Donald Trump Donated $78k Salary While Taxpayers Pay for His Golf Trips

Type: Time Spent at ResortsApr 03 2017 Severity:

President Trump had promised to donate his $78,333 salary check, stating that he was already wealthy and didn't need to take "even one dollar" from taxpayers. The promise was upheld by Sean Spicer handing Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke the check for Trump's quarterly salary. The issue is that Trump almost constantly travels to his own resorts, golf clubs, and businesses on the taxpayers dime. Trump has traveled to his Mar-a-Lago club 17 times since taking office.
