President Donald Trump has donated the fourth-quarter total of his 2019 salary to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
In a statement posted to Twitter, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham announced that the president would be donating his 2019 Q4 salary to the department in a bid “to support the efforts being undertaken to confront, contain, and combat #Coronavirus.”
Trump, who gave away his third-quarter remuneration to the fight against the ongoing opioid crisis, has been making good on his campaign promise to give away all his presidential paychecks to good causes. Past beneficiaries include the Department of Homeland Security to assist in building the wall on the southern US-Mexico border and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
As the wealthiest president in history, Trump can certainly afford the giveaways. In 2018, he declared a staggering $434 million in private income.
As cases of the COVID-19 virus continue to surge across the United States, today the US Surgeon Dr Jerome Adams issued a stark warning to the American people. “I want America to understand — this week, it’s going to get bad,” he told NBC News, urging citizens to follow the stringent social distancing guidelines.
