Since taking office, President Trump has donated each of his salaries to federal agencies. His previous donations have gone to the National Park Service, the Department of Education, and the Department of Health and Human Services. President Trump's donations have gone to areas that he finds important, including battling the opioid crisis, according to USA Today.

Yesterday, President Trump received the good news that Special Council Robert Mueller's team has informed his attorneys that they cannot indict a sitting president, according to CNN.

According to Rudy Guliani, one of Trump's lawyers, "All they get to do is write a report. They can't indict. At least they acknowledged that to us after some battling, they acknowledged that to us." 

The inability to indict a sitting president has been the position of the Office of Legal Counsel in the Justice Department since the Nixon administration.
