Classic Trump: The Gift that Means Nothing

This headline from HuffPo says it all

Trump Celebrates National Parts After Proposing to Slash their Funding

The details: Trump declared that April 15 to 23 is  “National Par Service Week” and will donate his first quarter presidential salary to the National Part Service …  errr … while proposing a 12% cut in their budget.

Trump … took the opportunity to tout his donation to the National Park Service ― his first quarter salary of $78,333.32 ― last week

Critics say the gesture is largely symbolic since Trump’s budget proposal would slash the Interior Department’s funding from $13.2 billion to $11.6 billion — a 12 percent decrease. The Sierra Club described the donation, meant to preserve the nation’s battlefields, as a publicity stunt.

That’s our Donald!  The man loves publicity stunts!
