Donald Trump has said that he would be “draining the swamp” once he becomes president, and now he’s doing exactly that. Conservative Party members were rightfully irritated by the insane amount of taxpayer’s money Barack Obama spent on vacation. According to unofficial sources, the former president may have spent about $100 million during his presidency on vacations! However, now that Trump announced that he won’t be taking vacation during his tenure, liberals are concerned about his expenses.
The buildings bearing Trump’s name require a great deal of security so liberals won’t damage them. The security for Trump Tower cost almost $26 million between election day and Trump’s inauguration, and ironically, it’s NYC taxpayers that are footing the bill. Trump is looking to cut down some expenses during his presidency, and he has started with some staff firings. Here’s a report by Truth Feed:
“President Donald Trump is eyeing first lady Melania Trump’s office for some staff cuts, as he makes good on a campaign promise to save taxpayers money.
As his wife continues to live in New York City with son Barron, the president is considering reducing the number of jobs in her office, which had grown to 20 employees, reported McClatchy, citing three sources aware of the proposal, but unable to speak about it on the record.
During Trump’s first month in the office, USA’s debt has declined by $12 billion – if that’s not successful, we don’t know what is. As Trump pointed out on Twitter, the national debt increased by $200 billion during Obama’s first month as president!
The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo.

This is only the beginning – once Trump revamps the tax code and federal government budget, the national debt should decline further.
