President Donald Trump has donated the first quarter of his presidential salary to the Department of the Interior to help fund the National Parks.
Zinke said that the additional funds would help maintain infrastructure of some of the national battlefield sites.
“We’re about $100 million or $229 million behind in deferred maintenance on our battlefields alone and that’s on our 25 national battlefields,” he said. “We’re excited about that opportunity.”
According to Spicer the check, that was made out for $78,333 was “every penny” that Trump received since his inauguration as president.
“The Park Service has cared for our parks since 1916, and the president is personally proud to contribute the first quarter of his salary to the important mission of the Park Service,” Spicer said.
Not bad for someone the media and the Democrats have claimed does not care about the environment but of course this will be ignored by the mainstream media, or if they cover it at all they will claim this was just an attempted diversion from the Russian hacking scandal or his failed attempt at replacing Obamacare…
