President Trump will donate his 2018 second quarter salary to the Small Business Administration, the White House said Wednesday.
Small Business Administrator Linda McMahon told reporters during the White House press briefing that the $100,000 will be used to establish a seven-month intensive training program designed to help veterans transition from the military to the private sector.
“We thank the president very much for this, and it will be put to very good use,” McMahon said.
Since taking office, the president has donated his quarterly salary to various government agencies. Recipients of the money so far include the Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Transportation, the National Park Service, Department of Education, and Department of Health and Human Services.
McMahon spoke at the first White House press briefing held in nearly a month. Her appearance was followed by national security adviser John Bolton. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was also present.
