President Trump ​donated his third-quarter salary – $100,000 – to help combat the country’s opioid crisis, the White House said on Thursday.

 

“His decision to donate his salary is a tribute to his compassion, to his patriotism and his sense of duty to the American people,” acting Health and Human Services Eric Hargan said on Thursday during the White House news briefing.

“We are so pleased that President Trump has chosen to donate his salary this quarter to the planning and design of a large-scale public awareness campaign about the dangers of opioid addiction,” he said.

The president in October declared the opioid crisis that killed more than 59,000 people in 2016 a public health emergency.​

​”Our​ goal is to create healthier lives, stronger communities​ , and​ a safer country, and we’re glad to have a president who recognizes that the opioid crisis is a huge threat to all three of these goals​,​”​ said Hargan.​

​Trump​ donated his first-quarter salary to the Department of the Interior and his second-quarter paycheck to the Department of Education.
