Trump Donates $100,000 From Salary To Alcoholism Research

0

President Trump has reportedly donated $100,000 from his 2018 salary to an institute that researches alcoholism.

The White House confirmed to The Hill Saturday evening that Trump donated $100,000 to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, a subsidiary of the National Institute of Health.

The president’s older brother, Fred Trump Jr., died of alcoholism-related complications in 1981, a death that the president has frequently cited as a reason why he does not drink and has not engaged in recreational drug use.

Trump pledged in 2016 to donate his $400,000 presidential salary if he won the White House, and has since donated the paycheck in installments to various government agencies.
