Over the past month, Donald Trump took major steps to flush out what he had said- “drain the swamp”. The amount of taxpayer money Obama spent on vacations was overly outrageous, especially to the Conservatives. The Liberals are concerned about Trump’s expenses, now that he’s isn’t going for any vacations or taking a presidential salary.
The Freedom Daily reports:
Why? Because the buildings bearing his name require an immense amount of security (which is apparently his fault – not the liberals who would damage his property). According to one estimate, security for Trump Tower cost $25.7 million between election day and inauguration day (far below the estimated $35 million cost initially projected). Ironically, it’s the taxpayers of NYC footing the bill, the overwhelming majority of which voted against him.
Even though it’s not the federal government taking up the tab, Trump is looking to trim the fat on some of the expenses his presidency is requiring the government to incur.
Trump’s wife, Melania, continues to live in the NY City with his son, Barron. President Trump is considering reducing the number of jobs in her office, which currently stands at twenty. The First lady has so far hired only two people to her operations; Chief of Staff Lindsay Reynolds who is an alumna of George W. Bush’s administration and White House Social Secretary Anna Cristina Lloyd, an events secretary who has worked on the last five serving both Republican and Democratic secretaries of state.
