H/T I Have The Truth:
“Almost as soon as her husband was elected, Michelle Obama began cultivating a reputation for being the ‘Vacationer-in-Chief.’ Indeed, there’s no denying she enjoyed jet-setting from country to country on the taxpayers’ dime, treating herself, her two spoiled daughters, and her undeserving mother to some of the most lavish accommodations the world has to offer.
That’s why Americans nationwide found it overwhelmingly refreshing when Donald and Melania Trump announced that they would be paying for their own vacations while they’re the First Family of the United States. In addition, Melania has vowed to keep her personal staff to a minimum, and will only hire as many staffers as are absolutely essential to her job as First Lady.
As MRC Blog reports, this could not be more different from Michelle’s approach to the job, as she wasted our tax dollars on hiring an enormous staff for herself just so she could feed her own ego.
“I think that Melania’s going to be outstanding,” President Trump said of his wife. “She – like others that she’s working with – feel very, very strongly about women’s issues, women’s difficulties. She’s a very, very strong advocate. I think she’s a great representative for this country.”Donald Trump never wanted to be president for the financial perks – he was already one of the world’s richest men. In addition to paying his own way when it comes to time off, he has also famously turned down the standard presidential salary, opting instead to receive the minimum of $1 per year.”
So, let’s see here. Melania Trump has cut the First Lady staff by 75%. The first family will fund their own vacations, instead of spending the close to $100 million the Obama’s spent on vacations. President Trump takes a salary of only $1, rejecting the $400,000/year salary he is entitled to. See a difference yet? These things add up!
Looks to me like the Trump First Family is off to a good start at “living within” reasonable means like most of other hardworking, taxpaying Americans. The Trump First Family is personally helping to control waste and spending which is a small start towards paying off the hefty deficit that Obama left – close to a $20 TRILLION debt for America.
Finally, we have some responsible adults in the White House and not people who think they are royalty and demand over the top opulence at every turn!
Thank you Lord! God Bless America!
