All Presidents from Washington through Grant's first term received $25.000 per annum, when the salary doubled. From Grant's second term until the 1909 term of Taft it remained there. From Taft to FDR the salary was raised to $75,000 and Truman got a raise to $100,000 which lasted until the Presidency of George W. Bush who receives $400,000 plus a $50,000 expense account, a $100,000 travel account and $19,000 entertainment account annually plus certain other perks.
