WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is donating his third-quarter salary to help tackle the nation’s opioid epidemic.

A White House official says Trump has given the $100,000 he would be paid in the quarter to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health, which oversees federal public health offices and programs, including the surgeon general's office.

The White House says the funds are being earmarked "to continue the ongoing fight against the opioid crisis."

Trump has made tackling the misuse of opioids an administration priority. More than 70,000 Americans died in 2017 from drug overdoses, the bulk of them involving opioids.

Trump is required to be paid, but he has pledged to donate his salary while in office to worthy causes. Trump donated his second-quarter salary to the surgeon general’s office.



Yeah, Trump is such a greedy evil guy...

Seriously, not only Trump, but Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner haven't accepted salaries as they serve in office.
When has anyone in a prior administration ever done that?

Oh, that's right. Never.
Yet the Democrats read evil intent and a greed motive into everthing he does.

Does all the charity fraud bother you though? I didn't do a thread on it but Trump was just recently busted for that and had to pay a pretty big sum for using his charity as a personal check book. I suspect if you added what he's stolen or cheated people out of he's taken far more than he's given.

Fair play!

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-salary-military-cemeteries/

Even liberal-partisan Snopes acknowledges Trump's quarterly donations to various branches of government, for healthcare and menta health of veterans, for math and science education programs in schools, for helping veterans start up businesses after their military service, and so forth.

Athough their headline is clickbait that implies deception by Trump, before explaining it was an erroneous internet meme.
