    As we all know, POTUS didn’t have to do this. He truly has worked overtime to earn every single penny of that check but, as always, he’s putting America first.

    Thank you Mr. President. 😀

    The press pool idiots were concerned about what Trump was doing with his legally earned money. I missed their concern of obama’s salary donations or his illegal skimming of Freddie/Fannie monies.
    Maybe the pool could clarify their previous failures?

    I wonder how he came up with that amount?
    My donations tend to be round numbers unless I’m actually paying for something specific.

      SteveC: Because he makes $400,000 per year and he gave away the first quarter of his salary to the Park. We all remember when Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize while he was in the office for only a week – and when he got the prize of $1.5 million while he was still in office, the money should go to the country. But nope, the greedy low class made a statement that he will donate the prize money to charity but nope, he just a typical liar, he did not even give out one penny to any NGO or Non-Profit Org. at all.

      salary minus taxes? (wait for it….”He took a writeoff for his salary!!”)
      Considering the gesture, he would want to include every penny

    I clapped when I heard this at the press briefing. Only my dog was around to hear this, but I hope Secretary Zinke, the wonderful man who runs Harper’s Ferry NHP and our own President know that this is significant.

    Our national historic parks are treasures.

      I disagree. Helping the country you love is a profoundly selfish act.

      Helping out someplace you don’t care about, now THAT would be selfless.

        Okay, SteveInCO, so how do you label helping nobody but your own self when you use public office to reap personal rewards? That would seem to be the history of the Clintons and of King Putt. Do you find those folks’ actions offensive?

          I do, but I consider that exploitative and predatory, not selfish.

          “Selfish” merely means you are considering your own self-interest; it does not mean you want to walk over the dead bodies of freshly killed victims while doing so. Doing something for someone or something you love is also doing something for yourself (you are helping out something or someone you place great value on).

          “King Putt” is a humorous monicker, I rather like it. 🙂 (Yes, I should leave Slick Willie’s GF Monicker out of this.) Of course “King Putt” might imply that Obola was decent at golf if nothing else, and he wasn’t even decent at golf.

    I’m seeing some confusion on this.

    My back of the envelope calculation is that Trump made 70.5 days pay during the first quarter (noon January 20 to Midnight March 31). Or maybe they paid him for all of 20 January. They would NOT have paid him 100,000 for that quarter, because he didn’t work through the whole thing.

    Figuring 400,000 * (70.5/365.25) gives me: 77,207.39, which is pretty close to the check he wrote. If I eliminate the quarter day, and divide by 365 instead, I get: 77,260.27. If I go to 71 days (figuring he got paid for all of 20 January) I get $77,808.22. If I go back to dividing by 365.25, I get $77,754.96.

    I cant quite hit 78,333.32, but I’m pretty sure that check is for his entire salary during the first quarter of the calendar year (not to be confused with the first quarter of his term, which doesn’t end until noon April 20th.

      Ah ha! Got it. First quarter has 90 days. Trump worked 70.5 days during the first quarter. Dividing 70.5 by 90 (the length of the first quarter) then multiplying by $100,000 gives 78333.33 1/3. So I’m within one and a third cents of getting what they got.

          Steve is indeed very good, but he has still made a fundamental error: he’s expecting SENSE out of a GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTANT.
          Back in the 1850’s (I have no internet link for this BTW, I learned in in college) some inspired fool realized that you could make accounting look really neat if you just denied reality and assumed that every year had only 364 days (exactly 52 weeks). The gub’mint immediately adopted this method. Now granted, many private firms did also at the time, but all of them ditched it in the 1880’s when mechanical calculation (adding machines) became available.
          However, more than a hundred years later, when I drew my very last–thank goodness–paycheck as a civilian federal employee, THE GUB’MINT WAS STILL USING THIS ERROR-PRONE POS SYSTEM OF ACCOUNTING!!!!
          Even if they’ve fixed it since, it would be completely typical: a major advance occurs, and our lovely gub’mint takes more than a century to adopt it!

            It’s a very good thing I live a quarter mile from my nearest neighbor, otherwise they’d have called the police on me for that insane peal of laughter you caused me.

    I cried when Goldwater lost.

    Every other President in between has gotten either snarls or sighs from me.
    …and Trump has made me cry joyfully already more times than I can count.
    …and any or the unprintable, censored unmentionables who sneer dismissively tomorrow “Well of course he did… he can AFFORD it!” … had better be damned glad I’m not within arm’s reach!

    I thought the President was not supposed to gain or spend anything out of his private business while in office, since that business is profiting from foreign clients.

    In other words, he should live off and spend money only on his presidential salary of $1 a year. (Crazy!)

    So how could he write a personal check for this much money? Can we say, there goes the emolument clause on which two California cities and a Massachusetts one are planning to impeach him on? Yeah!

    President Trump sure knows how to beat the Liberals in their own game. God bless our President.

    Just say’n it takes a very small, simple minded, shellfish, incompetent individual that concerns himself with how someone donates their own money to charity!

    Some divide the money’s, others write a check just giving a certain amount, such as 10, 100 etc while keeping the remainder for themselves.

My first thought as an Oregonian, was, “That looks like a fantastic stand of marketable timber!” This is what our national parks and forests should be doing, growing a valuable, renewable resource like Wood! Gives jobs to loggers and millworkers, builds homes and furniture, makes paper and cardboard and other packaging materials. If this land is supposed to be used for “the public,” then the public ought to be able to get something out of it besides calendars
