Proponents of smaller government will cheer at the news coming from Trump’s White House today. New four year projections show savings of $22 million on the White House payroll.
These reductions come mostly from Trump’s refusal to take a salary as well as decreases in FLOTUS staff, expensive fellowships, and czar advisors. Trumps yearly payroll comes out around $35 million while obama’s 2015 payroll was $41 million. Trumps White House has 110 fewer employees including 19 less FLOTUS staffers. Trumps daughter Ivanka and son in law Jared Kushner also refused to take salaries.
Yes in the big picture $22 million is minuscule, but it shows Trumps commitment to keeping his promise to cut waste and government spending. This info can be found at
