White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said on Tuesday that President Trump will donate part of his 2019 salary to fighting coronavirus, a novel illness that has killed at least six Americans.
"President [Trump] made a commitment to donate his salary while in office," Grisham wrote on Twitter. "Honoring that promise and to further protect the American people, he is donating his 2019 Q4 salary to [HHS] to support the efforts being undertaken to confront, contain, and combat #Coronavirus."
The last time Congress chose to increase the president's salary was in 2001, just before George W. Bush took office.
Today, Trump makes the same amount: $400,000. That doesn't include a $50,000 “expense allowance,” $100,000 for travel expenses or other entertainment allowances, according to Title 3 of the U.S. Code.
