Melania Trump Saving Tax Dollars as First Lady, Unlike Michelle O.
TruthRevolt: It’s not costing as much for Melania Trump to assume the role of first lady as it did with Michelle Obama. According to a Fox News report, Trump has cut the budget in half by not being surrounded by needless aides.
In the analysis done of White House personnel, Mrs. Obama had 16 employees in her first year in office. Their salaries totaled $1.24 million. That does not include other aides that worked for her, which brings the grand total to 24. According to FactCheck.org, that could be a record: “That may indeed be the largest of any first lady, but Hillary Clinton, with 19 staffers, and Laura Bush with at least 18 and perhaps more, weren’t far behind.”
So far, Mrs. Trump has just four people working in her office, making a combined $486,700 in salaries. Adding in her extra aides, Trump has a grand total of nine working for her — 15 less than the former first lady. MORE
