    Trump's Leaner White House 2019 Payroll Has Already Saved Taxpayers $20 Million

    Trump's Leaner White House 2019 Payroll Has Already Saved Taxpayers $20 Million
    .
    President Donald Trump’s White House payroll has 418 employees, that's 36 fewer staffers than Barack Obama at the same point in their presidencies.
    .
    There was 26-percent turnover in the key, top-paid “assistants to the president” from last year. Across the entire staff, there was 36-percent turn-over, as of June 30, 2019.
    .
    During the president’s first three-years, Trump spent $19.8 million less on White House payroll costs than Obama, adjusted for inflation.
    .
    Comparing First Lady staff headcount: Melania Trump (12 staffers) versus Michelle Obama (24 staffers).
    .
    Today, the Trump administration released its annual report to Congress on the White House Office Personnel. The payroll data includes employee name, status, salary, and position title for all 418 White House employees as of June 28, 2019. Search the recent Trump administration (2017, 2018, and 2019) and Obama administration (2012 through 2016) payroll data posted at OpenTheBooks.com.
    .
    Over the past 12 months, Trump added an additional 44 employees to the White House staff. Last year, the president employed 374 staffers, and we applauded the president’s frugality in our editorial at Forbes.
    .
    This year, not only did the president add employees, but his total payroll increased from $35.2 million to $41.3 million. In FY2015, Barack Obama’s payroll was much larger: $40.9 million ($44.2 million, adjusted for inflation) with 476 staffers.
    .
    Trump’s White House payroll has been a leading indicator of his commitment to “do more, with less.” In the first few weeks of his presidency, Trump issued an order mandating an executive agency hiring freeze. Trump asked his agency heads to “seek efficient use of existing personnel and funds to improve public services…”
    .
    Leading by example, Trump has already saved taxpayers nearly $20 million and projected four-year savings could easily top $22 million. In 2017, our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com forecasted a $22 million four-year savings.
    .
    The payroll discounts come from Trump’s refusal to take a salary, as well as big reductions in other areas including the absence of czars, expensive “fellows,” and spending on First Lady of The United States (FLOTUS) staff.
    .
    Here are some key findings:
    .
    There are 36 fewer employees on the White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies. (In 2011, Obama had 454 employees for $37.1 million – adjusted for inflation, the payroll cost $42.2 million.)
    .
    $2.9 million in annual payroll savings compared to the Obama 2015 payroll, inflation adjusted. In 2019, the Trump payroll amounts to $41.3 million for 418 employees. In 2015, the Obama payroll amounted to $44.2 million for 476 employees, adjusted for inflation.
    .
    Twelve staffers are dedicated to the First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). In 2009, First Lady Michelle Obama paid her 24 staffers $1.6 million collectively.
    .
    Overall, 133 employees from Trump’s 2018 payroll of 374 employees no longer work at the White House. The employee turnover rate was 36-percent year-over-year.
    .
    The most highly compensated White House employees under Trump are 22 assistants to the president who each earn $183,000.
    .
    Additional top earning staff include John “Mick” Mulvaney, acting Chief of Staff ($203,500), and John Czwartacki, Senior Advisor to the Chief of Staff ($239,595).
    .
    This year’s list of key advisors still includes names such as Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Press Secretary), John Bolton (National Security Advisor), Lawrence Kudlow (Economic Advisor), Steve Miller (Policy Advisor), Kellyanne Conway (Senior Counselor), and Stephanie Grisham (incoming Press Secretary).
    .
    Our review of this year’s White House payroll confirms twelve staffers dedicated to First Lady Melania Trump. Last year, FLOTUS had ten employees which was an increase from her five-person staff in 2017. Former First Lady Michelle Obama was heavily criticized for her 24-member staff in 2009 including assistants, advisors, schedulers, directors, deputies, associates, social and press secretaries, and other "helpers."

    Trump's Lean White House 2018 Payroll On-Track To Save Taxpayers $22 Million
    .
    President Trump’s White House payroll has 374 employees, that's 95 fewer staffers than Barack Obama at the same point in their presidencies. The Trump White House workforce runs 20 percent leaner.
    .
    White House staff experienced 39-percent turnover during the last 12-months. Of the 377 employees last year, only 229 remain. Most that left were quickly replaced.
    .
    Today, the Trump administration released its annual report to Congress on the White House Office Personnel. The payroll data includes employee name, status, salary, and position title for all 374 White House employees as of June 30, 2018. Search the recent Trump administration (2017 and 2018) and Obama administration (2012 through 2016) payroll data posted at OpenTheBooks.com.
    .
    Over the past 12 months, Trump was able to further shrink head count by three employees. Last year, the president employed 377 staffers and we applauded the president’s frugality in our editorial at Forbes.
    .
    This year, not only did the president maintain a lean staff, he cut the total payroll budget from $35.7 million (2017) to $35.2 million and further honed the books. In FY2015, Barack Obama’s payroll was much larger and exceeded $40.9 million with 477 staffers.

    But what about $100,000,000 PLUS to put his orange butt on a golf course most week-ends?

    If you want to complain about that, what about Nancy Pelosi using government aircraft to go to California for her weekends. Remember she changed from one type aircraft that required a refueling stop which she didn't like. She wanted non-stop flights, and got the use of a larger aircraft. But that is OK since she is the top demonocrat. I would assume the liquor bar was well stocked as well as fine cuisine. Oh well, haters gonna hate!

    The same can be asked about the $100,000,000 PLUS to put Obamas's black butt on a golf course most week ends.

    You have a major problem with your Trump Derangement Syndrome and need to get a grip.
    Isn’t the fact that President Trump has reduced the unemployment figures, raised the economy, increased job growth, to the point where there are more jobs than people to fill them and everyone’s 401K is doing great, just to name a few?
    Also he hasn’t taken a Presidential check since he’s been in office, which in itself more than covers all of his golfing weekends by far.

    And your neighbor keeps you off his property by erecting a 1 inch high fence, and labeling it "Hillary", cause you sure as hell can't get over Hillary.

    And how much to fly a few planes over DC, and park a couple of obsolete tanks in town, and then completely demonstrate his stupidity talking about defending air bases and air space during the revolutionary war.... just cause the teleprompters quit working.... really?

    But tell me how does not taking $400,000/year, which would total about $1,000,000 at this point in time "cover $110,000,000 golf excursions? That comes up about $109,000,000 short of "covering" the costs. Are you that effing stupid, or do your really have a problem with the truth?

    Oh, wait, you are just common pond scum liar, proven lies, and yet you have never had the courage, character, honesty, or integrity to admit you are a proven liar, there you pathetic excuse for a man, hiding behind your BILs Budwiser.

    And I will admit I have a problem with traitors and liars and the pathetic liars that support a traitor and a liar.

    So, found your spine yet, anything resembling honesty, integrity, honesty and want to actually man-up?
    Begin when you find any of those things.... start here:
    • The US is the only country that has birthright citizenship, just another lie from a coward.
    • Cesar Sayoc put Trump stickers, registered republican, attended Trump rally just to make democrats look bad.
    • CIA has gigantic drug lab at their headquarters in Langly, VA
    • Seattle Seahawks player burns American Flag in locker room.
    • McCain was personally responsible for the deadliest fire in the history of the US Navy, and an attack on the other side of the planet from his duty station.
    • Anthony Bourdain murdered by Hillary to silence him about her involvement in pedophilia
    • Child's skull found on Clinton property during sex trafficking and pedophilia raid.
    • Room full of servers destroyed in fire at Clinton home as agents with warrants were en route
    • Webb Hubbell is Chelsea's Clinton's biological father
    • Hillary flew to Russia in the middle to the night to elude arrest
    • Hillary had rock stars Chris Cornell murdered to silence him about her involvement in cocaine trafficking and a pedophilia ring.
    • Trump sends Feds to raid muslim compound in NY state, but it was actually a citizen arrested for shoplifting.
    • Jade Helm military exercise was the preparation for Martial Law which would occur in the summer of 2015
