Did Donald Trump Donate His Presidential Salary?

Bear in mind when Donald Trump received the 2016 presidential election (I do know, I don’t like enthusiastic about it both) and he claimed he would donate his total presidential wage—a hefty sum of $400,000 a yr—to charity? He certain liked speaking about it. Throughout his marketing campaign in 2015, he tweeted that he wouldn’t hold “even one greenback” of his wage, claiming that he would “completely [give] up my wage if I develop into president.” In March 2019, he tweeted that “Whereas the press doesn’t like writing about it, nor do I would like them to, I donate my yearly Presidential wage of $400,000.00 to completely different companies all year long.”

To his credit score, Trump really did make donations to numerous authorities companies, just like the Nationwide Parks Service. Nevertheless, due to the discharge of his tax returns from 2015 to 2020, we now know extra about his historical past of donations—and there’s a major hole. In accordance with CNN, Trump claimed no charitable donations in any respect on his 2020 tax return, making it extraordinarily unlikely that he donated that yr’s wage. Plus, lots of the charitable donations he claimed in earlier years are “unsubstantiated.”

Did the large loss he claimed on his 2020 taxes imply that he wanted the $400,000 to scrape by? Did he simply get bored and spiteful after shedding the 2020 election? We don’t know for certain what occurred to that cash, however what his tax returns clarify is that, after promising to donate each final cent of his wage, he didn’t hold that promise. Quelle suprise.

The tax returns have loads of different revelations moreover the wage donations—together with enterprise bills which might be miraculously an identical, all the way down to the final greenback, to the earnings from these companies—which makes his tax legal responsibility for stated companies zero {dollars}.

Trump’s tax returns have me enthusiastic about the time he hosted the Clemson Tigers, the 2019 nationwide faculty soccer champions, on the White Home. Trump clearly didn’t need them there, and as a substitute of springing for catering, he fed them mountains of quick meals. The entire fiasco was trashy, racist, and disrespectful—made much more so by Trump’s incapability to close up about how he had paid for the burgers out of pocket.

One factor we find out about Trump is that the extra he blathers on about having paid for one thing, the much less seemingly he’s to have really ponied up all of the money he stated he would. The person is a power liar and a lifelong miser, and the earlier he’s out of the general public eye, the higher.
