Trump’s press secretary reveals President’s bank account details

Washington: It’s a feel-good story that President Donald Trump’s press secretaries have relished over the years: the quarterly announcement of which government agency Trump has selected to be the lucky recipient of his salary, an easy way to show the president sticking to his 2016 campaign pledge to forgo his $US400,000 salary and donate it.

In the past, the $US100,000 quarterly cheque from Trump has been made out to the Small Business Administration initiative to help veteran entrepreneurs, to the Office of the Surgeon General to fight the opioid epidemic, and to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, among other places.

But on Friday US time, Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, did not just reveal that the President was sending his salary to the Department of Health and Human Services to help “support the efforts being undertaken to confront, contain and combat the coronavirus.”

Kayleigh McEnany, White House press secretary, holds a cheque in the amount of US President Donald Trump's annual quarterly salary, to be donated to the US Department of Health and Human Services.
