President Trump announced his second paycheck will be donated to the Department of Education.
In a statement, the Trump Administration earmarked the funds specifically to host a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) camp for students.
It’s not the first time President Trump has sought to focus attention on the teaching of the hard sciences, the statement points out.
Earlier in the year, President Trump signed the INSPIRE Act which encourages NASA to have women and girls participate in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and to pursue careers in aerospace. He also signed the Promoting Women in Entrepreneurship Act which aims to enable the National Science Foundation to support women in the sciences.
In the last pay period, President Trump kept his promise to not take his $400,000 a year salary by donating his first quarter check to the Department of Interior.
