Kirsters Baish| During his campaign, Donald Trump made a lot of promises, and we are excited to see that he is working hard to deliver on those promises. One promise he made to the American people was that of fiscal responsibility within the government. He promised to use tax-payer money wisely to the best of his ability. President Trump is following through on this promise, and the left who has constantly been bashing him at every turn finally has nothing to say.
An announcement was made on Sunday that explained that the Trump administration was doing something unheard of. They decided to cut their own budget by $22 million. President Trump is making big moves by cutting funds to the White House, which is where he is currently living. This guy is truly the definition of selfless. First, he runs for president in order to help his country, then he waives the yearly salary as president, then he cuts funds to his own residence. This guy is a legend.
I find it very interesting that the mainstream media along with the rest of the Democratic Party have been silent. They always seem to have something negative to say at every single turn. Now, they are speechless.
The savings come from a cut in the amount spent on Michelle Obama’s budget as First Lady, an end to the large number of “czars” and so-called “fellowships” that Obama employed, and a smaller White House workforce, Forbes magazine reported.
After the White House released its annual budget report last week, Adam Andrzejewski, president of government watchdog group OpenTheBooks.com, compared the newly reported budget to the last two years of the Obama administration.
Andrzejewski (pronounced And-gee-eff-ski) noted that there are now 110 fewer White House employees since Obama left office, saving nearly $5 million alone. Also, the First Lady’s staff has been cut from 24 staffers to only five. Michelle Obama entered the White House with a staff of 22 costing nearly $2 million annually, up from the $1.4 million spent during the George W. Bush era.
Trump also seems to have ended Obama’s shady “fellowship” positions, people responsible for such special programs as Michelle Obama’s “Let Girls Learn” initiative and others. Some of these “fellowship” candidates in Obama’s administration made up to $158,000 annually.
It’s great to see President Trump making these moves that we so desperately need. Let’s hope the left continue to keep their mouths shut.
