    After Pledging to Donate Salary, Trump Declines to Release Proof

    POLITICS MAR 12 2017, 10:12 PM ET

    by ARI MELBER

    snip

    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.

    Only a little more than 3 years and ten months to go...

    Enjoy!

    Without independent corroboration from at least three sources, Trump lied.

    The man has been in office how long? He gets just over $33k per month and will have to pay taxes on that. I'm sure his accountants are making sure that all taxes are handled before determining the amount to donate.

    Miller47 doesn't mind if Trump is a lying piece of shit, he just doesn't give a damn. It's more fun to poke at rational people than explain his love for Trump.

    His tax returns for 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 will most likely be released. They should be really pretty boring, especially if he only takes a salary of $1 and donates the rest after taxes.
