Projected four-year savings on the White House payroll could top $22 million. Savings come from President Trump’s refusal to take a salary as well as big reductions in other areas including the absence of czars, expensive “fellowships,” and spending on FLOTUS staff.
This is good news. Every bit helps and a true servant of the people doesn't do it for money.
There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.
$5.1 million in payroll savings vs. the Obama FY2015 payroll. In 2017, the Trump payroll amounts to $35.8 million for 377 employees, while the Obama payroll amounted to $40.9 million for 476 employees (FY2015).
Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009).
5 vs 24? Michelle was definitely "movin' on up".

The American people have been praying for a business person to run the country, and now we finally have one. How refreshing.

And how much are we taxpayers spending so that der Trumpenfürher can go off and play golf every weekend, despite his promise to spend weekends at the WH?
