Donald Trump Gives His First Paycheck to the National Park Service

The check.

The National Park Service, the federal agency that sparked one of the first controversies of the Trump era, will be the beneficiary of the president’s first-quarter paycheck. Trump, who has declined to take his $400,000 per year salary, is giving his $78,333.32 to help restore national historic battlefields, said Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.

Zinke’s department faces a nearly 12 percent cut in Trump’s proposed budget, a decrease of about $1.5 billion in funding.
