Trump Warned Cuts Were Coming And They Didn’t Listen, Now He’s Just Saved $22 Million

Published

When President Trump took office, one of his greatest promises was to cut waste in his administration. His White House expense cuts could possibly save up to $22 million. This would make American taxpayers very happy and compared to the Obama administration, it’s earthshaking. Obama was very good at spending money. Trump is good at cutting costs and when he has to spend money, he does it wisely and with offsets.

Since coming into office, President Trump has donated his salary to U.S. departments and agencies. For example, he donated his fourth-quarter 2017 salary to the Department of Transportation, according to USA Today. The rest of the Trump family is also leading by example by foregoing their salaries. First Daughter and Presidential Advisor Ivanka Trump and Son-in-Law Senior Advisor Jared Kushner both refused a salary. Trump has also worked with the first lady and has cut her staff as well, thereby saving more money according to Forbes. Melania employs ten staffers as opposed to Michelle Obama having 24. Those Obama staffers were paid a total of $1.6 million in 2009. Trump has had big reductions in other areas including the absence of czars and expensive “fellows.”

The left complains that Trump is not filling position vacancies. That is by design. He fills those positions that are necessary and have merit. The others he allows to atrophy and go away simply by not filling them, thereby saving that money. Trump has 95 fewer employees than former President Barack Obama’s 2010 White House. So far, Trump’s frugal ways have already saved taxpayers $11 million, according to Forbes and he’s on track to save $22 million as stated previously.

The highest-paid Trump staffers are his 23 “assistants to the president,” or high-level staffers, including Sarah Huckabee Sanders, John Bolton, John Kelly, Larry Kudlow, Steve Miller and Kellyanne Conway. They each make $179,000 annually. But unlike Obama’s staffers, they don’t magically become millionaires while on the White House payroll. Funny how that works, huh?

I’ve written previously on how Trump has issued a series of executive orders that reduce the amount of time it takes an agency to fire people regardless of union affiliation. That is now being utilized. No longer does a government worker have a job whether they should have one or not. They now have to earn it and can be fired like anyone else. “Today, the President is fulfilling his promise to promote a more efficient government by reforming civil service rules,” said Andrew Bremberg, director of the President’s Domestic Policy Council. “Every year, the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey shows that less than one-third of federal employees believe poor performers are adequately addressed by their agency. These executive orders make it easier to remove poor performing employees, and ensure that taxpayer dollars are more efficiently used.”

From my previous article on Trump’s executive orders:

“The first thing on the agenda is reducing the time it takes to fire poor performers and employees suspected of misconduct by standardizing the length of Performance Improvement Plans to 30 days across the federal government. Right now it varies agency to agency and takes somewhere between 60 and 120 days usually.

““A GAO report shows that it takes six months to a year to remove someone from government, and can often take another nine months on appeal,” an official said. “[This] also encourages agencies to fire someone for misconduct when they’ve been engaged in behavior that warrants it, instead of just suspending them.” Talk about cleaning house. The official said the administration would also make performance a more important factor than seniority when agencies undertake layoffs.

“According to DML News:

““The second executive order directs federal agencies to renegotiate contracts with unions representing government employees so as to reduce waste. The anonymous administration official expressed hope that, for example, agencies could stop having to pay expenses on both sides when unions undertake appeals on behalf of fired workers.”

““The third order aims to cut down on “official time,” in which government workers who have roles in the union, like helping colleagues file grievances, are allowed to perform those roles during normal working hours for which they draw their usual salary. (An analogous concept exists for private-sector unions.) The order limits official time to 25 percent of their hours during the year.””

All of those are now taking effect and in the process are saving taxpayers money by employing those who actually competently do their jobs. These moves alone have the potential to save “at least” $100 million in taxpayer money.

This year, not only did the president maintain a lean staff, he cut the total payroll budget from $35.7 million (2017) to $35.2 million. In FY2015, Barack Obama’s payroll was much larger and exceeded $40.9 million with 477 staffers. Trump’s White House payroll has been a leading indicator of his commitment to “do more, with less.” In the first few weeks of his term, Trump issued an order mandating an executive agency hiring freeze. Trump asked his agency heads to “seek efficient use of existing personnel and funds to improve public services…”

The media is also constantly crowing about Trump’s legal problems, but White House payroll shows no evidence that the president is using taxpayer dollars to lawyer up. In fact, the number of lawyers on staff remained roughly the same at 32 this year versus 33 last year.

President Trump’s personal moves in his administration are an indicator of how he views and is working on the entire federal government and what he plans to do to help America. He’s cutting waste and costs, while improving trade and income. He warned everyone he was going to cut waste and that is exactly what he did. But he’s also put forth a booming economy and stock market, record low unemployment and he’s bringing back a ton of jobs. Trump keeps his word and America is thriving because of it. He is the antithesis of Obama.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
