Sean Spicer: Reporters to help decide where Trump's salary goes

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday that President Trump plans to donate his salary at the end of the year — and that Trump would like reporters to help him decide where to send that check to.

"He kindly asked that you all help determine where that goes," Spicer said during Monday's press briefing.

His announcement drew laughters from reporters.

"In all seriousness, I think his view is that he made a pledge to the American people," Spicer continued. "He wants to donate it to charity, and he'd love your help to determine where it should go."

Recent news reports have questioned whether the president would donate his salary, given his pledge to do so and that his second payday is approaching. Under federal law, the president of the United States is paid $400,000 annually and receives his paycheck once a month.
