Secretary DeVos explained that the Department of Education used the money to put on an educational camp for students.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders presented Education Secretary Betsy DeVos with a check from President Trump for $100,000 at the White House press briefing on Wednesday.
Trump has pledged to donate his salary back to the U.S. government in order to help cover the costs of government programs.
“Today’s and tomorrow’s economy requires students prepared for STEM careers. That’s why we’ve decided to use the president’s second quarter salary to host a STEM-focused camp for students at the Department of Education,” DeVos said.
She praised President Trump’s education policies, but said, “There’s much work to be done.”
“We are certainly on the right track thanks to the president’s leadership,” DeVos added.
