MELANIA TRUMP IS WAY BETTER THAN MICHELLE OBAMA: CUTS PAYROLL BUDGET IN HALF, ONLY 4 STAFFERS INSTEAD OF 16
Melania Trump has cut the first lady’s office payroll in half. With only four staffers instead of 16, the payroll budget got slashed from $1.24 million to $486,700 a year.
High-maintenance Michelle Obama had at least 16 assistants that cost American taxpayers $1.24 million a year. When she went to Africa with her friends and family members, Michelle listed her daughters Malia and Sasha as “senior staffers” to justify the expensive getaway.
FOX News reported:
Melania Trump is embracing a more active and public schedule as first lady – but she still runs one of the leanest East Wing operations in recent history.
According to a Fox News analysis of White House personnel reports, Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on the first lady’s office payroll in comparison to her predecessor, Michelle Obama.
During then-President Barack Obama’s first year in office, 16 people were listed working for Michelle Obama, earning a combined $1.24 million a year.
This year, just four people were listed working for Melania Trump as of June. Their salaries totaled $486,700.
