Trump is going to get paid, he can not decline the paycheck. Try reading some history, Geroge Washington tried to refuse it and they paid him anyway. The President being paid is in the consitution, and is there so the President of the United States doesn’t have to be wealthy, and will not find himself/herself in debt to anyone while being president. He could like, Herbert Hoover and John Kennedy donate his salary to charity, but he will be forced to accept his paycheck. Surprise, he isn’t the first to make the claim he would not accpet a paycheck.
