Donald Trump will donate his salary 'by year's end'

Donald Trump will donate his annual presidential salary of $400,000 to charity by year's end, spokesman Sean Spicer said and he even wants the media he often criticizes to help him choose a worthwhile cause.
"The president's intention is to donate his salary at the end of the year," Spicer told reporters yesterday at his daily briefing. "He made a pledge to the American people."

"He kindly asked that you all help determine where that goes," he continued a rather unusual statement from a White House that has made hostile confrontation with the media a near-daily occurrence.

"The way that we can avoid scrutiny is to let the press corps determine where it should go," Spicer said with a hint of irony, perhaps in reference to past media scrutiny of Trump's donations and the management of his family foundation.
