VIDEO: Don’t Forget What Trump Said About The Presidential Payroll
Presidential politics are in full swing in the U.S. and with Bernie Sanders joining the corrupt side of Hillary Clinton, it's down to a race between the right and the left. Hillary, for her part, will do everything in her power to raise taxes, increase government programs, and excuse excess spending. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has made some impressive promises when it comes to money in Washington.

In a Twitter question and answer session, a user with the Twitter name Silence DoGood asked Trump if he would "forego the presidential salary if elected?"
Trump was instantaneous in his response, even taking the time to record a video message in response to this earnest question.
He spoke of self-funding his campaign, something that Trump has paraded throughout his presidential run, and then ended with the promise DoGood was looking for.
"As far as the salary is concerned, I won’t take even one dollar. I am totally giving up my salary if I become president."
Wow. That's impressive.
Currently, the presidential salary is a whopping $400,000. That's more than almost anyone in the U.S. will ever make in a year and it's an impressive sum for someone, anyone to turn down.
Hillary, for her part, charges close to that $400,000 mark just to give a speech at a university--and people still wonder why their college debt amounts are climbing.
This election is a clear competition between the side of capitalism and common sense government talked about by Donald Trump, and the socialistic, handout-oriented policies of the left endorsed by Hillary Clinton.
Were Hillary to be asked the same question as Trump, whether she would forego the presidential salary, you can bet that the answer would be a no. Hillary loves money and power. That's it. We need someone at the helm who would take the role of president seriously, and not having money attached to that role is a good way to do it.
