Kayleigh McEnany accidentally displays Trump’s private bank account
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany accidentally shared President Trump’s personal banking information.
McEnany, while announcing that the president would be donating his latest paycheck to the Department of Health and Human Services at Friday’s briefing, displayed the check from Trump to HHS, which included sensitive information. The president earmarked the donation to go toward further research on treatments for the coronavirus.
“I want to note the president, as you all are well aware, donates his salary to various initiatives and parts across the federal government. In this quarter, he will be donating his salary to HHS, Health and Human Services, to develop new therapies for treating and preventing COVID-19 so that we can safely reopen,” she said.
The president has previously donated his quarterly donation of $100,000 to several government initiatives that he values, including a payment to the Department of Homeland Security to build the southern border wall and a donation to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health to combat opioiddiction. In March, Trump gave his first quarterly paycheck of 2020 to HHS to help the department work to contain the coronavirus.
“Today, his salary went to helpvance new therapies to treat this virus, but leave it to the media to find a shameful reason not to simply report the facts, focusing instead on whether the check is real or not,” White House spokesman Judd Deere told the New York Times.
