It looks like while Obama was president, he and his family have spent a staggering amount on vacations even though millions of Americans were struggling just to put food on the table. The Obamas thought they were king and queen. Michelle wasn’t elected to anything, and should have had a limited budget not UNLIMITED!
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.
Luckily, Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on the first lady’s office payroll in comparison to Michelle Obama. Only four people were listed working for Melania Trump as of June this year with total salaries of $486,700.
Both the Obama and Trump administrations acknowledged several additional staffers beyond those listed in the report with the term “first lady” in their titles. But even counting all those employees — 24 for Michelle Obama and nine for the current first lady — Melania Trump’s office is relatively small.
It’s an approach her spokeswoman says is intentional.
“As with all things that she does, she is being very deliberate in her hiring, focusing on quality over quantity,” communications director Stephanie Grisham said in an email. “It is important to her that the team is a good fit for what she wants to accomplish as first lady, and that everyone works well together. She also wants to be mindful and responsible when it comes to taxpayer money.”
While the 2009 annual report listed 16 staffers for Michelle Obama, her press secretary said at the time the staff actually included 24 people.
Michelle Obama’s staff included those same positions and a slew of others: additional press aides, a director of policy and projects, a personal aide, a traveling aide and a director of correspondence.
Our First Lady Melania has a conscience and class and doesn’t wish to milk the system for all it’s worth. But Michelle acted like a spoiled brat in a candy store. She did not care what she spent. As far as she was concerned it was taxpayers money and they could care less.
Business people always know how to keep costs down and profits up which should be no different for the politicians in the District of Corruption. Reduce government costs putting the money back into the pockets of the people who have been robbed for decades.
