    Mind if I refer you to Trump if Kelly Ann Conway for whatever isn't available anymore? I mean you've got the bullshit enabler thing down pat.

    The Constitution, however, requires that the president receive a salary, and that it not be reduced during his term. Federal law mandates the president receive a $400,000 annual salary, paid out once a month.

    Trump aides have previously said Trump would donate his salary to the Treasury Department or a charity.

    snip

    Salary donations are not the only area where Trump's pledges to donate revenue are lacking transparency.

    During the transition, Trump also unveiled a plan to "donate all profits from foreign governments' patronage of his hotels and similar businesses" to the Treasury Department. The plan was released by Trump's private law firm, Morgan Lewis, but no system or accounting has been released for how or when such donations will be processed or disclosed.

    We don't give a rat's ass about those returns and you know it.

    Yes this is a similar pattern of pledging and not following through with charities. The man is so greedy he can't let go of money even if he promises it.

    It will be interesting to hear what Baghdad Bob Spice says if questioned on this.

    I'm sure it will be something like, "If the president has said he would do it he will. It's still early yet."

    You people are like snotty children. You don't even care if Donny The Dumbfuck is a lying, corrupt POS. All you care about is that fact pisses off some Americans. It's simply fucking bizarre!

    I doubt it.

    And that's a weak attempt at sweeping his recent tax returns under the rug.

    Thx

    Trump will not last 4 years. I can't wait until he is in an orange jumpsuit matching his facial skin color.

    He's probably working on setting up another foundation so he can donate to himself.
