President Trump continued his personal tradition of donating his quarterly salary to various causes, and this time is particularly eyebrow-raising.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced the president’s doling of the salary on Tuesday.
“Today, the president is proud to donate his fourth-quarter 2017 salary to the Department of Transportation to support their programs to rebuild and modernize our crumbling infrastructure,” Sanders said at the press briefing.
Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao accepted the president’s salary, which symbolically represents the White House’s emphasis on infrastructure.
Also on Tuesday, it came out in Politico that former White House aide Omarosa’s firing may have been transportation-related. It was reported that she had been using the presidential car service known as CARPET as a personal limo service.
Who knows how much Omarosa cost taxpayers with her jet-setting around on government property. Was this President Trump’s attempt to put money back into public coffers to offset Omarosa’s lavish misuse of the “strictly forbidden” White House transportation?
It could just be a coincidence. We’ll probably never know.
