no such law

trump is waiting till end of year yes. and we will pay him his salary plus his tax deduction so about double the salary he would get if he doesn't donate it.

It is:

US Constitution, Article II, Section 1
The President shall, at stated times, receive for his services, a compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished during the period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that period any other emolument from the United States, or any of them.

that does not specify that he cannot donate it

Quote:
When President Kennedy took office in 1961, he was a very wealthy man. His family's worth was around $1 billion at the time, and he himself had a multimillion-dollar trust fund. He certainly didn't need the presidential salary ($100,000 annually with a $50,000 expense account, at the time) to get by. So, he donated it all to charity instead.

"President Kennedy's entire salary is going to charity," a newspaper reported at the time, according to Snopes. "Six charities benefited from the $94,583.32 the President received in 1961." According to the Snopes piece, some of the recipients of his donations were the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America, the United Negro College Fund, and the Cuban Families Committee.

Kennedy also donated the entirety of the salary he earned in Congress over the course of his 14 years in the House and Senate. Altogether, his charitable donations may have totaled as much as $500,000 over the course of his political career.
