Check out How Obama Wasted $1 Trillion
Leftists like to remind everyone of how great Obama’s economy was.
They also say that Obama was Superman and Jesus rolled into one.
Hundreds of banks have failed under Obama. So, taxpayers were left holding the bag for $71 billion of defaults. Couple this with the $787 billion in bailouts and you get what the Left calls “Obama Success!”
Not only is the Trump administration working hard to make America great again, every day Trump’s presidency exposes Obama as an incompetent fraud.
Recently the White House staff salaries were released.
Not only did we find out that Trump Is spending $5 million less than Obama, but his leaner White House payroll is projected to save $22 million.
Here’s what we know:
There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.
$5.1 million in payroll savings vs. the Obama FY2015 payroll. In 2017, the Trump payroll amounts to $35.8 million for 377 employees, while the Obama payroll amounted to $40.9 million for 476 employees (FY2015).
Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009).
Counts of the “Assistants to the President” – the most trusted advisors to the president – are the same (22) in both first-year Trump and Obama administrations. In the Trump White House, Steven Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Omarosa Manigault, Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer and 17 others make salaries of $179,700. In Obama’s first-year, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel and twenty others held the title with top pay of $172,000.
The highest compensated White House Trump staffer? Mark House, Senior Policy Advisor has a salary of $187,500. Mr. House is “on detail” from a federal agency which allows him to exceed the top pay-grade of $179,700. In Obama’s Administration (2009), David Marcozzi earned $193,000 “on detail” from Health and Human Services.
It is clear the Obamas wasted money.
What did Michelle Obama need 24 staffers for?
More advice on how to starve children with her so-called school meal plans? Personal style assistants who continued to dress her badly everywhere she went?
Obama campaigned on criticizing President Bush for racking up a trillion-dollar debt calling it “unpatriotic.” Then Obama must have been double patriotic, given the national debt at the end of Obama’s presidency.
Trump’s White House staff budget cuts proves he is a brilliant businessman making smart moves that saves you the American taxpayer money.
In addition to Trump giving up his salary to charity, his daughter Ivanka and Jared Kushner have rejected their salaries as well. Yet the Left would want to think Trump only took this job to become more rich.
What the media also will not tell you is that since President Trump’s Inauguration the amount of debt owed by the US government has decreased by $100 billion. Under President Obama, the US debt grew by more than $560 billion, an increase of more than 5% in his first 3 months in office.
Let this be an indicator to every American that President Trump is dedicated to cutting waste, fraud, and taxpayer abuse.
