Leaders and salaries #nlpoli

Donald Trump says he won't even take one dollar in salary as president.

Sounds familiar.

In Newfoundland and Labrador,  Proto-Trump said the same thing.  His fan club insist the Greatest One never took a penny of salary.

That was, at best, a fib.

Danny Williams collected every penny of his salary as member of the House of Assembly and Premier.  
Every.  Penny.

Williams donated it to his own charity and took the tax benefit from it.

he also built up pensionable time and presumably qualified for a pension.

And Williams' charity handed out the cash to folks and organizations in the province while he was in office.

Will the real Trump do the same thing?
