Donald Trump won the office of the President of the United States of America for a few simple reasons.
He promised to put America first and the American worker first. He promised to redo our terrible trade policies and tax system that is hurting, not helping America and most importantly the American worker.
He also made another promise that most people have forgotten about. To take a fine tooth comb to the budget and Government expenses.
Many have promised this but none have delivered. Because they are beholden to special interests who like the pork barrel projects that are putting this nation in so much debt.
But now we have proof that Trump, alone among politicians is doing just what he promised.
Trump just announced the unthinkable, the politically impossible, that he is saving the American taxpayer $22 million by cutting his own White House spending.
This is how leaders lead – from the front, by example, not from back through rhetoric.
Key difference but believe me it makes all the difference.
According to Breitbart:
“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.”
Adam Andrzejewski, president of government watchdog group OpenTheBooks.com said after comparing Trump’s budget to the last two years of the Obama’s,
“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.”
