Trump’s first paycheck to fund restoration projects at Antietam battlefield

( CNN) The $78,333.32 that President Donald Trump gifted from his first paycheck as President will help fund restoration projections at Antietam National Battlefield.

Interior Department Secretary Ryan Zinke announced Wednesday that the portion of the payment, which Trump in April announced he was bequeathing to the National Park Service, is in favour of restorations at the National Park Service protected domain in Sharpsburg, Maryland, which observes the Battle of Antietam.

On the campaign trail, Trump promised that, if elected, he would gift his White House salary to a laudable campaign. Under subsisting federal regulation, the President is required to accept the $ 400,000 salary that comes with the department.
