One criticism many people had of Obama was his frequent vacations. That won’t be a problem with President Trump! In fact, Trump is saying he won’t even accept the salary he is entitled to!
President-elect Donald Trump stood by his promise to reject the presidential salary, during an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes.
“The answer is no,” he said, when asked about his campaign trail promise by CBS interviewer Lesley Stahl. “I think I have to take by law one dollar so I’ll take one dollar a year.”
He admitted that he didn’t even know what the salary was, but when he was told it was $400,000 salary he declined it.
“I’m not taking it,” he said.
He added that he would not be taking too many vacations either.
“There’s so much work to be done and I want to get it done for the people,” he said. “I want to get it done. We’re lowering taxes, we’re taking care of health care.”
Trump always said the only reason he was running was because he loves his country.
He’s already proving it!
