Trump just claimed that he is the only president ever, except maybe Washington, to give up his salary. Is that true?

    A 400k presidential salary is nothing in Trump's big fat, billionaire wallet.

    Hoover and Kennedy didn’t take a salary either. He’s not the first POTUS; he’s the 45th: 44 men (43 technically because Grover Cleveland was the 22nd and 24th) have served in the job before him so maybe he should read for once in his life who and what his predecessors did.

    Washington took a salary. He kind of had to since all the money in his marriage belonged to his wife. But Hoover gave half his salary to charity and used the other half to embellish his staff salaries. JFK famously gave his entire salary to charity. So technically Trump is right in that he's refused the salary entirely. But others have taken the money and then given it away instead of keeping it for themselves.

    No, John F. Kennedy and Herbert Hoover both gave their salaries to charities.

    him and Washington are 2 of the most wealthy presidents, they didn't need the salary so they donated it.

    With all the money he charges the government for using his properties, he doesn't need a salary.

    He's a damn fool and proves it with every sentence he utters.

    Nope. Kennedy and Hoover didn't take their salary for themselves either.  Just another self aggrandizing lie that many of his supporters will swallow despite being obviously a lie.

    I think the deal was that we use only his properties to host state events...no discounts.
