2. Supposedly, this is what he's been doing. Who knows with him, though.

3. I was just wondering about this a couple days ago.

They announced the recipients the first couple months, but I haven't seen an announcement since. As he seems to have done with other charity funds, I would guess he has his method down pat on how to divert the funds to him AND get the credit for being so generous.

6. I find this revealing:



Although Trump pledged to donate his salary to DHS, federal regulations prohibit agencies from accepting donated funds unless Congress grants authority to the agency to accept the donation. Without congressional authorization, donated money is deposited into the general fund of the Department of Treasury.


wonder if he has any friends over treasury????

8. Yes, I saw that. I don't recall seeing any authorizations from Congress in the news releases.

If there's a way, he'll figure it out. He may not be smart, but he's street savvy.

He pretends to be so concerned about the police and military. Why didn't he contribute to their fund for relief to families in distress?

With the blind support of McConnell, Mnuchin and Barr many things are possible.

Making much more than his salary.

Emoluments. He is nickeling and diming the taxpayer to the tune of millions.
