Trump donates salary to HHS for 3rd time

President Donald Trump donated his salary for the second quarter — $100,000 — to the office of the Surgeon General in his third salary donation to HHS, according to USA Today.

The money will be used for an unspecified "upcoming public health advisory," according to the report. The White House named the opioid epidemic and teen e-cigarette use as key initiatives of the Surgeon General's office in a statement.

President Trump committed to donate his salary as president to different agencies each quarter. His previous HHS donations came from his salary in the third quarters of 2017 and 2018. They helped fund the fight against the opioid epidemic and research into alcoholism, respectively. He also donated his first-quarter salary of 2018 to the Department of Veterans Affairs, according to the report.
