  • Ishkur: The reason why he does this is because if he claims the money it would open up his finances to public scrutiny. He doesn't want to do that so donating it (ie: declaring a government income as $0) keeps his books private.

    At least, that's my theory.


    He's been donating ALL of his paychecks? One of us is confused. It might be me but I'm doubtful.
  • It was a prop anyways. Charity is not even the worst thing Trump lies about.
  • This is an intentional move to get bribes directly deposited into his account.
  • I'm not willing to send him money butt I'll send him a Lincoln Log dildo, NO LUBE, LUBE COST EXTRA!!!
  • Her fingernails are dirty. That's pretty much what I expect out of a person who supports Donald.
  • Here's how hard it is to find a bank's routing numbers.

    Forgot to add, the one on the check is the first routing number listed.

    Seems like everyone in this thread, along with the writer of the article, have ZERO idea how checks work.
  • wood0366: dickfreckle: IlGreven: enry: Nobody wants to steal his identity so that's probably the safest set of routing numbers on the planet.

    No one wants to physically impersonate him.

    Everyone would like to use his name to get at his money.

    Aw hell nah. Even if I were a pro thief I'd want nothing to do with that account. There's no telling what I'd be getting into. Russians, for example.

    Plus every banking regulatory office on the planet is watching it like a hawk.


    I'm sure there are people in China/Russia/India who really give a shiat.
  • That was obviously posted for "special interest groups" to "donate".
    In other words, Russian puppet gets paid for four more years of doing this shiat.
  • So he's reminding people of his promise to refuse his pay?  Or, is this a new paycheck he's donating?  Double dipping promises...
  • This is like claiming that you can withdrawal from my account because you know where the nearest branch is. A routing number is not personally identifying information. It's the bank's electronic address and is on the check of every single person who banks there.

    It astounds me that as the richest nation on earth Americans are so dumb about how basic finances work.
  • TheGrayCat: Above and beyond the stupidity of showing the check and my disbelief that he is actually "donating"  his salary - Why is he still getting a paper check and not using direct deposit?


    Because his base has a median age of 134 and haven't even heard of direct deposit. Same reason why they kept smugly snarking about how we shouldn't "cash that $1,200 check" if he's not our president.

    Uh, don't checks also have the account number on them?

    Sure but it's not the same one for every person who banks there. In all honesty there's very little you can do to protect yourself from a determined fraudster. Your account and routing number are on every check. Your card numbers can be read, either physically, or by a scanner everytime you use it. The CVV number (on the back) is even  easy to get. The main protection is insurance/liability protection that protects you from being responsible and electronic monitoring that uses machine learning to determine if the purchase matches your established profile.
  • And, of course, he's lying and she's lying.

    You CANNOT give money to any part of the Federal Government. All such checks are returned undeposited. You can give money to the Federal Government as a whole, or to reduce the public debt. You can find out how online if you're so inclined.

    He's writing them to departments because he's counting on you not knowing this. The checks are returned uncashed. He then just keeps the money, and people who are unaware of the law or just farking stupid enough to believe that Impeached President Donald John Trump would give away money think that he's donated his salary.

    It's a lie, and the fact that the sheep in the press pool don't call him on is part of the reason why we're in this hell.
  • Can someone just pop in and take a screenshot of his bank account? Maybe publish it? And then disappear.
  • qorkfiend: Why would being paid his normal salary "open his finances up to public scrutiny"


    Because he would have to declare it at tax time.

    And he doesn't want to do that.
  • It would be poetic if some Russian hacker emptied his account.

    No, I mean, wouldn't his bank account number be on this check, assuming that it's actually his?
  • chucknasty: MelGoesOnTour: Circusdog320: She went to Harvard so she's more smarterer!

    Really?

    let me guess. she had a perfect SAT score and was on the crew team.


    only when the football team had an away game...

    nice.
    I actually looked and I cannot find her passing a bar exam. she went to Harvard Law School and was never a lawyer, just a Stepford wife. I almost feel bad for her. almost. that is like getting your pilot's license but never flying a plane. her looks only lasted for so long. it is all downhill from here.
  • PSA: If you haven't created an account at your state's government site that would be linked to unemployment benefits in some manner, or haven't linked your state's unemployment service to your existing state account, you should do so now to prevent fraud, because the identity thieves are hitting them hard. You should do this even if you are still employed and not collecting unemployment to prevent fraudulent accounts from being made based on your Social Security Number.

    The specifics will vary greatly between states. As one example, in the state of Washington, you go to the Employment Security Department (ESD) website to create a Secure Access Washington (SAW) account if you don't already have one, or to link the ESD to your SAW account if you already have one for other purposes like renewing license plates.

    Huh, suddenly it's great that I was on unemployment for much of 2018.
