President Trump is donating his 4th quarter salary to the Department of Transportation. A president's total salary is $400,000 a year. In a White House briefing yesterday, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao accepted the check and highlighted President Trump's new infrastructure program. She called infrastructure the backbone of the U.S. economy. The plan calls for a $200,000,000,000 investment from the federal government.
The White House hopes that will spur more than $1,000,000,000,000 worth of infrastructure work through state and private partnerships.
