President Trump stands for smaller, leaner, cheaper, and more effective government, and he’s proving it in how he has set up his White House staff.
As a contributing article in Forbes pointed out, the White House payroll could save American tax payers $22 million over the course of four years.
The Trump administration released an annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel, which includes the name, title, and position of the 377 White House employees. Here’s how they stack up to Obama’s 2015 budget:
Trump’s total staff: 377. Obama’s total staff: 487.
Trump’s total cost: $35.8 million. Obama’s total cost: $40.9 million.
President Trump also discontinued Michelle Obama’s “Let Girls Learn” initiative, which employed three White House directors, and ended Obama’s White House Leadership Development Fellowship.
These are some of the ways President Trump has managed to keep down costs. It likewise helps that two of President Trump’s key advisors, Gary Cohn, Director of White House National Economic Council, and Christopher Liddell, Director of strategic Initiatives in the White House, are serving with reduced salaries of $30,000. Both men are highly successful businessmen.
Although President Trump said that he would not draw a salary, Article II of the Constitution requires the president to have a salary. President Trump has decided instead to donate his quarterly earnings to government causes- this quarter he donated to the Dept. of the Interior to help repair military cemetaries.
This sounds like great news! Fewer people in government, getting more stuff done, with less money! It’s the Trump way, and that’s why we support him.
President Trump did the incredible in the middle of his speech today. The President honored Harry F. Miller during his speech at the annual Freedom Concert in Washington D.C. Watch the incredible moment below.
How inspiring was that to hear the crowd chant “Harry! Harry! Harry!” in honor of the vets. If you don’t know who Harry Miller was, here’s what you need to know.
Harry was only 15 when he joined the US military during World War II.
Harry lied about his age when he joined the Armed Forces.
Harry was a hero at the infamous Battle of the Bulge.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is giving military chiefs another six months to go back over whether transgender individuals should be able to enlist in the military. They are looking at whether it will affect the “readiness or lethality” of our military force.
Mattis made the decision on Friday and said that a delay in the “readiness or lethality” of the force.
“After consulting with the service chiefs and secretaries, I have determined that it is necessary to defer the start of accessions for six months,” Mattis said, as indicated by The Associated Press. “We will use this additional time to evaluate more carefully the impact of such accessions on readiness and lethality.”
Liberals are losing it now that transgender can’t get into the military. Here is what Stephen Peters, Human Rights Campaign spokesman, said, “Each day that passes without the policy in place restricts the armed forces’ ability to recruit the best and the brightest, regardless of gender identity.”
Jerry Boykin, a retired Army lieutenant general and executive vice president of the Family Research Council said that it is the right decision: “The Pentagon is right to hit the brakes on a policy that will fail to make our military more capable in performing its mission to fight and win wars.”
Barack Obama did a lot of terrible things. He gave Iran access to ICBMs and he let ISIS grow from a tiny group into a monstrous group. However, probably worst of all, he let Kim Jong Un grow into a massive Nuclear power.
During a joint press conference with South Korean President Moon, Trump gave Obama the ultimate insult…
The awful Obama policy of “Strategic Patience” is OVER. This is the same policy that lead to a nuclear North Korea capable of striking the United States.
Donald Trump’s decision to apply military, economic, and diplomatic pressure has been a long time coming. For decades now, US Presidents have relied on horrible policies that allowed the Kim family to gain power.
Luckily we have Trump and Jim Mattis in charge these days. Even Mattis said that he wants to avoid war at all costs, believing a war with North Korea would be the bloodiest in world history. However, military action is on the table.
There has been a lot things going on in the government as of late. It seems like we are seeing a lot of hate from the left towards President Donald Trump and his administration. They have only one goal and that is to get him impeached. But the Democrats don’t have anyone to turn to themselves. The reason they lost the presidential election was because they were unwilling to get a better candidate that Hillary Clinton. She was doomed to fail from the start. But it is begining to look like the Democrats have chosen their savior and he is scarier than Clinton and Obama. He is a Muslim man named Dr. Abdul el-Sayed.
We all know that Muslims are trying to take over the United States from the inside out. They have been trying to instate their laws and it is not going to fly under President Trump we are seeing Muslims in Europe literally destroying the entire continent. This is the exact reason President Trump wants to protect Americans from this kind of madness. El-Sayed is backed by the terrorist organization Muslim Brotherhood and has ties to former President Barack Obama.
This would be a very dangerous man to have in office of any kind. We have seen first hand what Muslims can do to the United States just by looking at what is going on in Michigan. And what do you know, that is where he is trying to become governor. It looks like he could have a pretty good chance to win, too.
He is a Trump hater that has a knack for giving handouts to refugees and would be a very bad thing for the United States. Liberals want to turn this man into their next Obama. He talks without an accent which helps him to gain votes. Something needs to be done in order to ensure this man will not win.
Democrats think that this man will be their savior. We need to show them that conservatives are having none of it.
What do you think about this Muslim trying to gain office?
President Donald Trump, his wife First Lady Melania and their eleven-year-old son Barron were caught on camera looking happy as they were getting out of the White House on Friday afternoon to go for a family weekend amid president’s current public dispute with MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
The first family seemed calm and relaxed as they were getting onto Marine One, making a small break to give a smile and a wave at the waiting photographers before shortly boarding Air Force One and going to Bedminster, New Jersey, where they are set to stay until Monday.
All three synced in very patriotic red, white, and blue outfits, with Melania opting for a red-and-white gingham skirt and white blouse, while President Trump wore a navy blue suit and striped blue tie, and their 11-year-old son Barron seemed pretty relaxed in a blue T-shirt and beige shorts.
Melania, who in fact has been accompanied by her parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, for the weekend, topped her outfit with a pair of sky-high Christian Louboutin heels and added a touch of allure courtesy of her sunglasses.
The first family’s decision to leave Washington, D.C. comes just a day after Donald Trump became involved in a fierce – and very explicit – feud with MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski that led to making a dramatic allegation on Friday that Melania is only remaining with her husband for the sake of their son Barron.
“I know Melania. I haven’t talked to her in months, but if my gut is right, I don’t think she’s going to put up with it much longer,” Brzezinski said. “I know nothing. That’s just my instinct and I go with my gut and my gut’s always right.”
“I’m just telling you, Melania’s got the worst job in the country and I don’t think she wants do it a lot longer. I think she will do it for as long as she has to for her son, and that’s it,” Brzezinski added.
