President Trump Donates Third-Quarter Salary To Health Agency To Tackle Opioid Crisis
Written by broebling on December 1, 2017
President Trump wrote a check to the Department of Health and Human Services that will go toward a public information campaign about the opioid crisis, fulfilling part of his pledge not to take a salary in his role in the Oval Office. The donation is part of Trump’s pledge to give his $400,000-a-year presidential salary away. The latest check will go toward paying for a public awareness campaign that will detail the dangers of opioid addiction, which involves prescription painkillers and illegal drugs like heroin. The awareness campaign was one of the recommendations that Trump’s opioid commission made earlier this month.
