President Trump Donates His Quarterly Salary to the Department of Education

Speaking from the White House briefing room Wednesday, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders announced President Trump has donated his quarterly salary of $100,000 to the Department of Education. 

"Secretary DeVos, it is my pleasure to present a check on behalf of the President of the United States of $100,000 to the Department of Education," she said. 

After making the announcement Sanders handed a check to Education Secretary Betsey DeVos, who said the funds will go toward hosting a academic STEM camp for kids. 

"Today's and tomorrow's economy requires students prepared for STEM careers," DeVos said. "I am grateful to the President for this generous gift. The President is committed to the nation's students and reforming education in America so that every child, no matter their zip code, has access to high a quality education." 

Yesterday DeVos spent the day with advisor Ivanka Trump promoting STEM education for girls at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington D.C.
