In this day and age it seems like the classes gap has become wider, where the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, and occasionally we read a story about someone who isn’t “doing it for the money” and that’s a good thing, right?
President Donald Trump recently said that he’s donating part of his annual presidential salary to the Department of Homeland Security and subsequently posted a photo of a check for $100,000 on Twitter, this gesture represents one quarter of his annual $400,000 salary.
However, the donation will have to stay in limbo until further notice as his donation will be held in the general fund of the Department of Treasury. (federal regulations prohibit agencies from accepting donated funds unless Congress grants authority to the agency to accept the donation.)
This isn’t the First Time
Since taking office, Trump has donated his salary to a number of government agencies and efforts. Part of his salary, according to the administration, have gone toward government areas including; combating opioid addiction, a camp promoting science, technology, engineering and math careers and restoration projects at Antietam National Battlefield.
He has previously donated to the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Transportation, the National Park Service, the Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services.
Not Fake Twitter News
“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,” tweeted Trump. “If I didn’t do it there would be hell to pay from the FAKE NEWS MEDIA!”
You are not Alone
It would be wonderful to not have to worry about money on a day to day basis, but for a lot of people living on the breadline is a reality. Don’t feel undervalued because you can’t afford to give away all or any of your wage to a good cause, you can do your bit for humanity in different ways.
Just living within your means or just getting by is an unfortunate normality for a lot of people and needing an extra hand when times are tough is not something to be ashamed of. If you can’t afford to buy something outright, but can afford to spread the payments over say 6 months with an installment loan, why not? Why should you go without if you can responsibly afford it.
