Mr. Spicer said the money represented Trump’s entitlements for the quarter.
During campaign, Mr. Trump vowed that he would not take the presidency’s $400,000 annual salary if elected.
The president promised to donate the entire salary to charity and he repeated that promise after his victory in November.
The White House press secretary said “this is every penny that the president received for this quarter, according to Constitution.
“The president consulted with White House counsel and decided to give it to the National Park Service.
“So, the president is donating every penny.”
Mr. Spicer then presented the cheque to Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke.
After receiving the cheque, Mr. Zinke said “we are going to dedicate it to infrastructure in our nation’s battlefields.”
Born on June 14, 1946, Donald Trump is the 45th and current President of the United States of America.
