Donald Trump says he won’t take the presidential $400.000 salary when he takes office in January.

The new United States President has revealed during the 60 minutes tv show that he will be paid only one dollar a year: “I think I have to take by law one dollar so I’ll take one dollar a year”.

This might be due to the fact that he is the owner of several TV shows and channels, hotels, casinos and also he is also a business man.

About the controversial decision to refuse releasing any of his tax returns, Trump defends himself saying that he will do so “at the appropriate time”. So this demonstrates how controversial his policy is: he his against war on wan hand – and he said, during one of his speeches that he will recall all the troops from Africa – but on the other hand he wants to expel almost all the “illegal immigrants”.

The “one dollar President” also commented about the recent violence across the country after the election, when thousands of people marched against him for five consecutive days in a anti-Trump protest. “I’m so saddened to hear that.

And I say stop it. If it helps. I will say this, and I will say it right to the cameras: Stop it!” he said.
