President Trump is calling on Congress to give him a $100,000 gift exchange to celebrate his “Thank You” tour.
“Thank You for all of the hard work, the hard working people that have been hard at work for so long to get our country back on track,” Trump tweeted.
“Let’s give back to the great people of our country for this gift exchange,” he continued.
“This gift will help make a big difference for the people of the United States.”
Trump has a number of other ideas for giving back to his country, but the president wants to do it at a time when it is hurting, and that includes a $2,500 gift to the National Institutes of Health, which Trump and other top officials have repeatedly cited as a reason for slashing funding for the health agency.
“When it comes to cutting federal spending, I’m going to do what I always do, I am going to cut.
I’m not going to sit there and say we’re going to spend $1.5 trillion, and it will work out great for me,” Trump said in a March interview.”
So I’m just going to put in a lot of money, and I’m taking care of it,” Trump added.”
I am very focused on getting things done.
I don’t have time to waste, I want to do this right,” he said.
The president has proposed a gift of $10 million for the NIH, which is currently receiving $1 billion in federal funding.
The White House says it wants to give more money for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has been hit hard by the Zika virus.
Trump also wants to increase the federal workforce to 8,000 people by 2018, though his administration has not finalized a plan to do so.
The $100 million gift will be distributed over the course of the president’s “Thank you” tour, which he is hosting in March.
The president has been touting his administration’s success in boosting the economy and providing relief to those in need during his presidency, though he has also expressed frustration with the government’s failure to keep up with its promises.
“They’ve gotten everything out of my mouth, but they’re not keeping up with their promises,” Trump told ABC News in March during a speech at a White House celebration of the 20th anniversary of the White House’s “Thanksgiving Day” program.
“I’ve never been more proud of a government than I am right now.”
