Confirmed: Donald Trump Says He Will Take $1 Salary as President

60 Minutes Trump

President-elect Donald Trump stood by his promise to reject the presidential salary, during an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes.

“The answer is no,” he said, when asked about his campaign trail promise by CBS interviewer Lesley Stahl. “I think I have to take by law one dollar so I’ll take one dollar a year.”

He admitted that he didn’t even know what the salary was, but when he was told it was $400,000 salary he declined it.

“I’m not taking it,” he said.

He added that he would not be taking too many vacations either.

“There’s so much work to be done and I want to get it done for the people,” he said. “I want to get it done. We’re lowering taxes, we’re taking care of health care.”

Trump signaled that he wanted to bring the people together, urging both the protesters and his supporters to stop abusing each other.

Stahl pointed to the recent violence around the country after the election

“I am so saddened to hear that. And I say, ‘Stop it,” he said. “If it helps. I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: Stop it.”

He suggested that many of the protesters were “professional” and that his supporters would have been excoriated by the media if they refused to accept the election results.

“There is a different attitude. You know, there is a double standard here,” he said.

Stahl specifically told Trump that the gay, Muslim, African-American, and Latino communities were frightened after he was elected.

He replied that the incidents were probably amplified by the press, but he urged Americans to come together.

“Don’t be afraid,” Trump said. “We are going to bring our country back. But certainly, don’t be afraid.”

Speaking to the entire family, Stahl asked Ivanka Trump if the campaign had hurt the family’s business brand.

Ivanka Trump replied that she didn’t think it mattered.

“Who cares? Who cares?” Trump added earnestly. “This is big league stuff. This is our country. Our country is going bad. We’re going to save our country. I don’t care about hotel occupancy. It’s peanuts compared to what we’re doing.”

  1. The ‘Don’ is my President thank god he has come to the Presidency, right now there is no decent Leader outside of Russia Israel & China and probably India. Europe has had it, Some dumb broad on France 24 is yelling her head off and doesn’t give anyone one else a chance to speak. Good news on Egypt viz a viz IMF extending a loan to build Egypt’s economy.

  2. I believe we had divine intervention to win this election, with videos proving the Democrats cheated in several ways. Everyone I talk to is euphoric that we have one last opportunity to save our Country, bring manufacturing back to our Country, close our borders, get rid of Obama-Care once and for all, cut the waste in government, and demand people work or go to school (as they do in Switzerland). Thank you, Mr. Trump for standing up to this evil force against us, covered up by Main-Stream Media (also the ones fueling George Soros’ paid rioters.
