Media Critical of Trump Donating First Check to National Park Service

President Donald Trump will fulfill a campaign pledge to donate his salary. His first quarter salary, $78,333, will go to the National Park Service. Was this praised by the media? No.

Instead, CNBC said it won’t help the park service [1]. The Washingtonian said that this check is tax-deductible [2], which implies that it is self-serving (a fair point).

Still, it is another campaign promise fulfilled and it goes to historic national battlefields.
