US President Donald Trump donated his salary for the first quarter of 2020 to fight the coronavirus epidemic. This was written on Twitter by CBS correspondent Mark Noller.
According to him, at a briefing in the White House, spokeswoman for US President Kaylee Mackinani showed a check for $100 thousand, signed by Trump. The money will be used to develop a drug against COVID-19 and treat patients with coronavirus.
Trump later announced on Twitter that he intends to give his entire annual salary as donations to fight the epidemic. The total amount, he said, will be from $400 to $450 thousand. The President noted that it is an honor for him to help the Ministry of Health and Social Services of the country.
In March, Makinani already reported that Trump returned to the budget his salary for the fourth quarter of 2019 as a donation to the Ministry of Health to fight against coronavirus.
