President-elect Donald Trump has given his word to change numerous things if he won the presidency. During his campaign, Trump stated that he will reject a $400, 000 salary if he became the next commander-in-chief and that he will not want outside contributions for his campaign.
Trump, the front-runner for the Republican nomination in the 2016 race despite having no political experience, was asked at a town hall-style meeting in Rochester, New Hampshire, if, as president, he would roll back generous pension and healthcare benefits given to members of Congress.
“The first thing I’m going to do is tell you that if I’m elected president, I’m accepting no salary, OK?” Trump said. “That’s no big deal for me. I won’t take even one dollar. I’m totally giving up my salary if I become president”.
Trump, who built his fortune as a developer, real estate mogul and reality television personality, was listed on Thursday at No. 405 on Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s billionaires, with a fortune of $4.1 billion. Shortly after announcing his candidacy in June, Trump said his net worth was more than $10 billion. Herbert Hoover, who made millions of dollars in mining before becoming president in 1921, and John F. Kennedy, who came from a wealthy family, both donated their presidential salaries to charity.
And in case you all are wondering that this is some fake story-it’s not. Here is a video proof:
This is one of the reasons why they hate him as president: he can’t be bribed and will not partake in any of their corruption that will go against this country. This is some incredible news to be heard from Trump.
