President Donald Trump tweeted a photo of his check that he donated to the Department of Homeland Security from his salary.
“While the press doesn’t like writing about it, nor do I need them to, I donate my yearly Presidential salary of $400,000.00 to different agencies throughout the year, this to Homeland Security. If I didn’t do it there would be hell to pay from the FAKE NEWS MEDIA!”

President Trump said Monday he would donate $100,000 of his annual pay to the Department of Homeland Security, writing there would be “hell to pay” from reporters if he did not.
The department is charged with carrying out Trump’s policies on immigration and border security, and the department’s funding was central to a 35-day partial government shutdown that ended in January. During the shutdown, agency employees weren’t paid on time as Trump sought to convince Congress to provide billions of dollars in funds for a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. More
President Donald Trump has donated his quarterly salary to various federal departments and agencies that includes the departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Transportation and Veterans Affairs, among others.
President Trump getting it done while setting the liberals on fire! What a great president! Who else would put up with all the stuff he has to for free? No other President in America’s history has been abused more than him.
Liberal flip out on Twitter:
This is a straight up lie.
Sorry- Trump has surpassed Obama’s vacation spending for the entire time he was in off. While making money for himself! The secret service has to pay for their own room, food, and the golf carts while on those trips! All going into Trumps pockets

Except one cannot donate to individual agencies. It would go to the treasury. pic.twitter.com/3C5UiI2A21
