Why does Trump always brag about giving up his salary? Why does he think it makes a significant difference to either him or the country?

Update:

His once failing businesses are now finally profitable, and he has 30% of the country signed up as die hard consumers of his brand, and he acts like a martyr because he forgoes a $400K annual salary?

Ivanka's getting Chinese patents, military staying at Trump properties, Kushner getting money for his properties from Emiratis, yet he wants us to think that not taking home his $400k is really ruining him financially.

Who believes this Shi'ite?

    It puts the lie to the claim that he is only in it for what he can make.

    Why does he always say he is extremely rich every time he says he gives up his pay. Why is he now saying he would have let the G7 stay at Dorval for free when he ,by law, is not involved in Trump Org anymore. Why is he sending the Military to his hotel in Scotland.

    Regardless . . . and given Trump's penchant for, to put it mildly, exaggeration . . . he enjoys all the perks, health care, meals, housing, security, and unlimited access to power, both financial and militarily . . . along with extensive international networking for future financial gain.

    You see the traits of this conman president.

    Just always remember the snake when dealing with conmen.

    First find out if he is venomous. Then remember that's snakes moves crookedly always.

    Dont even believe half of what he says.

    He has an ego. I don't see any of the ultra rich on the left giving up their congressional salaries
