Sean Spicer suggested Monday that President Trump will let the White House press corps decide where he will donate his presidential salary.

Spicer told the press briefing POTUS’ “intention right now is to donate his salary at the end of the year, and he has kindly asked you all determine where that goes.”


“The way that we can avoid scrutiny is to have the press corps determine where it should go,” the White House press secretary added, drawing laughs from the crowd. “In all seriousness his view is he made a pledge to the American people.”

“He wants to donate it to charity, and he’d love your help to determine where it should go.”

When someone in the room suggested “journalism scholarships,” Spicer responded “that would be a great way.”
