By the way, isn't Trump giving away his salary? Huh, interesting.
What's he need it for? He hasn't divested, and his own policies are supporting his private investments. He's living a lavish lifestyle on American tax-dollars. And, it's a smart propaganda move which really impresses his followers. J.F.K. was wealthy enough to refuse his salary, and Herbert Hoover accepted his salary but donated it to charity.
These days, $400,000 is pocket-change to a billionaire.
