Trump will donate portion of salary to Antietam battlefield projects

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump previously said he wouldn’t take his $400,000 annual salary, but federal law got in the way. As a workaround, the president promised to donate the equivalent of his paychecks to the federal government.

Now, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced Wednesday that nearly $264,000 will go toward two projects at Antietam National Battlefield in Maryland. That figure includes Trump’s $78,333, as well as donations from both an anonymous party and three nonprofits.

And in April, press secretary Sean Spicer presented the National Park Service with a check for $78,333 — one quarter of the president’s annual take-home pay.

“I’m deeply honored and humbled to deliver the donation to Antietam National Battlefield on behalf of President Trump,” said Zinke. “The president’s donation will allow generations of Americans to learn about our history and heritage on this sacred site.”

Oh, how I wish we in Delaware had true patriots like this!

Maybe the NEXT election can change things.

What is not good about this is the Obama mandate that the Civil War story has to be rewritten to reflect his view on the war. The war was all about "The African-American Struggle for Freedom" or "The war to free the Slaves", as anyone can attest to this line of BS, after visiting any of the CW sites since this joke took office.(meaning Obama)
