Reason #5501 That Trump Was Elected

He's not in it for the money: Trump donates first-quarter salary to National Park Service
President Trump will donate his first three months of salary to the National Park Service, White House press secretary Sean Spicer announced Monday.

"The president has spoken with counsel and made the decision to donate his first-quarter salary to a government entity," Spicer said at Monday's briefing.

Spicer handed a check for $78,333.32 for the National Park Service to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. Spicer said the paycheck starts from Jan. 20, when Trump took office, until now.
. . .
During the campaign, Trump vowed that he wouldn’t take the presidency's $400,000 annual salary if elected, and he repeated that promise after his victory in November.
A few days ago, the Washington Post made big deal about the President not yet having donated the salary. And from the Daily Kos on March 13: Despite repeated pledge, Trump refuses to provide documentation he's donating salary, hotel profits

It's not a lot of money in Trump's terms

I think he's in it for something bigger than money; his name.
