President-Elect Donald Trump is legally required to take a minimum $1.00 salary in order to be president — which is what he will do.
Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos is going to do exactly the same thing.
The Washington Examiner reports:
At her Senate confirmation hearing Tuesday, President-elect Trump’s selection to lead the Education Department, Betsy DeVos, said she won’t accept a salary, assuming she’s confirmed for the job.
“If confirmed, I will only take a salary of $1, to be official, but I don’t intend to take a salary either,” DeVos said.
DeVos and her family are worth approximately $5.1 billion combined, thanks to their success building the Amway company.
This is what America needs at the top rung of government — successful people who have a wealth of knowledge and skill-sets, which can lift a society up, rather than bring everyone down.
