“I promised YOU I would not take a dime of salary as your President. I donate the entire $ 400,000! It is my honor to give $ 100,000 to @NatlParkService to help repair and restore our GREAT National Monuments. So important to our American History! Thank You!!” Trump tweeted.

This is the second time Trump has donated his salary to the National Park Service. In March 2017, he gave up his first paycheck as president to the agency.

Friday’s donation comes more than a month after Trump signed an executive order protecting U.S. monuments like those toppled for having connections to racism or slavery. The statues were targeted in protests sparked by the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
