Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is accepting the check from the president in the amount of USD 100,000. The donation announced today in the White House briefing room comes a day after Trump released a plan to rebuild crumbling roads, bridges and ports.
The Transportation Department says the funds will be used for a grant program that deals with critical infrastructure projects.
As a candidate, Trump vowed not to take a salary, which is USD 400,000 annually. By law, he must be paid, so he is donating the money.
