A new broom sweeps clean. The White House for 8 years has been the personal play-lodge of the Obama family, but statements from the Trump administration have given those of us opposed to government waste and extravagance a lot to hope for.
It is reported that First Lady, Melania Trump plans on using “only personal funds” for family vacations, exactly the opposite of the “vacationer in Chief” Obama. Not only this, but she has also stated that her personal staff will be kept to a minimum.
The national deficit is sitting around $20 Trillion, and the President and First Lady using their own funds for vacations is not going to make much of a dent in it. But it is the principle that counts here. President Trump himself has refused the $400,000 a year salary and instead is taking a token $1. If more elected officials were to take the path of saving government money, not only could we begin to pay off our debts, but it would also set the right example for future leaders.
It is almost ironic that we are being shown how to live within our means and to take care of every penny by someone as rich as Donald Trump. But as the saying goes, “lead from the front”.
Americans are already noticing the HUGE difference between Michelle Obama and Melania Trump.
It’s not just about style but about family care and class.
Melania is a true Christian. When Melania Trump cited the Lord’s Prayer at the opening of a Trump rally in Florida, religion will be front and foremost in the White House.
Melania has also decided not to WASTE taxpayers with any overindulging and lavished jet-setting vacations like the former First Lady Obama did. While the Trump’s are in the White House and the First Family, they will be funding THEIR OWN personal vacations.
Folks, did you read that? Let me says it again… the Trump family will be funding THEIR OWN personal vacations.
We all know how Michelle is now well-known by Americans as the ‘Vacationer-in-Chief.’ 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.
THIS IS JUST AMAZING, TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!
“I think that Melania’s going to be outstanding,” President Trump said of his wife.
Let’s add that President Trump’s taking only $1/year instead of a $400,000/year salary. The First Family will also fund their own personal vacations.
That’s already a HUGE amount of dollars and savings for the hardworking, taxpaying Americans and that’s just comparing Trump’s salary and travel.
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.
