Trump gives fourth-quarter salary to Transportation Department

President Donald Trump has donated his salary from the latest quarter to the Department of Transportation’s push to improve U.S. infrastructure, the White House announced Tuesday.

“Today, the president is proud to donate his fourth-quarter 2017 salary to the Department of Transportation to support their programs to rebuild and modernize our crumbling infrastructure,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at the press briefing.

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao was on hand to accept the donation, and stressed the importance of rebuilding U.S. roads, bridges and more.

The president has vowed to donate his entire annual salary of $400,000 while he is in office.

Trump donated his first-quarter salary to the National Park Service. His second-quarter earnings went to the Department of Education and his third-quarter earnings were donated to the Department of Health and Human Services’ efforts to combat the opioid crisis.
