He said he was going to donate his salary and he has done it.
Once upon a time. Barack Obama visited the Senator Obama Secondary School in Kogelo, Kenya. He was greeted like a hero.
He was shown the school with its total of four dilapidated classrooms which lacked water, sanitation, and electricity. The students — about a third of them orphans — sang songs in his honor.
He was given a proposal showing how, for only $98,000, the school could get a perimeter fence, a science laboratory, new classrooms, a dining hall, running water, and latrines.
He announced to the press that he would assist the school.
In the 12 years since Obama came to Washington, he has made $20 million. He has donated nothing to the dilapidated Kenyan school.
