Letter Writer Points Out Trump’s Accomplishments

Share

 

Dear LV Commentator,

 

On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status,  salary and position title of all 377 White House employees.

 

The report said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary, instead he donated it to an amazing cause! (see below).

 

The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money  than Obama was.

The total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs. $40.9 under Obama, a savings of $5.1 million.

 

Here are some other key findings:

 

  * There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.

  *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).

  *However, it’s what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking.  

        Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries!

 

    AMAZING! It’s so great to have a President who loves our brave military men and women so much!

 

  Oh, and where’s the media coverage of this? Oh that’s right, they don’t cover anything good that the President does.

 

  NO, BUT WE WILL! PLEASE, PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO ALL YOUR EMAIL PALS AND OTHERS! TOGETHER, WE’LL GET THE MESSAGE OUT.

Sam Brancadora, Reading, PA
