From Conservative Post:
President Donald Trump donated his third-quarter salary to the Department of Health and Human Services, to help the agency combat the opioid epidemic, the White House and HHS announced Thursday.
“His decision to donate his salary is a tribute to this compassion, to his patriotism and his sense of duty to the American people,” said HHS acting secretary Eric Hargan, who attended the White House daily press briefing.
The opioid epidemic, Hargan said, is killing 175 Americans every day, and “we’re losing seven fellow Americans during this press briefing alone.”
Trump declared the opioid epidemic a national public health emergency in October, a move that freed states to allocate more federal health-care dollars to fighting and treating the epidemic.

Do you think that this was a good choice? Trump has been keeping his promise to take no salary for doing his job as President, and we personally think that’s an amazing feat. A lot of people would do anything or say anything to become the leader of the free world, but Donald Trump is keeping his promises. Amazing!
