Donald Trump has been viciously attacked and smeared since even before he was elected president in November 2016…
And since the election and the formation of his transition team, his family has also come under attack…
One of the more ridiculous accusations against both President `Trump and his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner is that they are all trying to use their positions for personal financial gain – at the expense of “hard-working Americans.”
Few probably remember that while on the campaign trail, Trump vowed to forego his salary if he were elected president.
However, Article II of the Constitution mandates a salary for the President of the United States. He can’t forego it or refuse it…
So what has he done?
He has donated the quarterly portions of his $400,000 salary to:
- The Department of Interior (DOI)
- The Department of Transportation (DOT)
- The Department of Education (DOE)
- The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
- The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
First Daughter and Presidential Advisor Ivanka Trump, and Son-in-Law Senior Advisor Jared Kushner have both refused government salaries.
This is NOT what government employees who are seeking to enrich themselves at the expense of tax-paying American workers do…
But this is what President Trump and his family are doing.
Chances are, you haven’t heard about any of this from the mainstream progressive – and anti-Trump – media.
