The Obama family set a dangerous precedent with all of their lavish vacations, but they are not alone; we cannot forget that the swamp-dwellers love to spend our money, too. The president and his family are off to a good start, but we cannot forget that the swamp needs to be drained.
Is it because we had eight years of a family dedicated to spending our hard-earned money on extravagant vacations and living a lifestyle that some could only dream of? Or has it always been like this and we are only just now noticing? But here’s the kicker: Michelle Obama is actually angry that responsible adults have taken over the White House and by their own honorable actions – exposing for being the ‘Vacationer-in-Chief.’
She’s angry that President Trump and First Lady Melania’s “leaner White House payroll,” as reported by Forbes, this week is saving taxpayers $22 million overall? Yes. Yes, she is.
There’s plenty to be angry about, Ms. Obama – for instance, the selfie taken by Obama fan Jolene Jackinsky which went viral with Barack noticeably ring-free? Yeah, that would tick me off, as it would most wive’s…
How about when the Trump administration dumped the education initiative championed by former first lady Michelle Obama, The “Let Girls Learn” program? Yep – but hey girl, Trump is pretty much dumping all the Obama “legacy” for darn good reasons, no matter how cute you name the wasteful giveaways. God forbid you help Americans, Michelle – the “Let Girls Learn” program, which started in 2015 to facilitate educational opportunities for adolescent girls in developing countries, will cease operation immediately.
This came from an internal document obtained by CNN – so you KNOW IT’S TRUE!! You’ve been called an angry black woman because you ARE an angry black woman – but getting mad because The First Lady coming in behind you spends far less of the taxpayer’s dollars than you? C’mon – that’s just over the top.
Most Americans are noticing a HUGE difference already between former First Lady Michelle Obama and current First Lady Melania Trump. Some Americans are comparing Melania to former First Lady Jacqueline “Jackie” Kennedy. “Jackie” Kennedy was about class, poise, beauty, style and so much more. Melania channeled most of that on Inauguration Day.
Melania Trump has been a stark difference from Michelle Obama, not only when it comes to putting style and class back in the White House. Second, as witnessed by many Amerians, when Melania Trump cited the Lord’s Prayer at the opening of a Trump rally in Florida, religion will be front and foremost in the White House. Finally, Melania has also said she is not going to stick taxpayers with any overendulging and lavished jet-setting vacations like the former First Lady Obama did. While the Trump’s are in the White House and the First Family, they will be funding THEIR OWN personal vacations.
Almost as soon as her husband was elected, Michelle Obama began cultivating a reputation for being the ‘Vacationer-in-Chief.’ Indeed, there’s no denying she enjoyed jet-setting from country to country on the taxpayers’ dime, treating herself, her two spoiled daughters, and her undeserving mother to some of the most lavish accommodations the world has to offer.
That’s why Americans nationwide found it overwhelmingly refreshing when Donald and Melania Trump announced that they would be paying for their own vacations while they’re the First Family of the United States. In addition, Melania has vowed to keep her personal staff to a minimum, and will only hire as many staffers as are absolutely essential to her job as First Lady.
This could not be more different from Michelle’s approach to the job, as she wasted our tax dollars on hiring an enormous staff for herself just so she could feed her own ego. President Trump said of his wife. “She – like others that she’s working with – feel very, very strongly about women’s issues, women’s difficulties. She’s a very, very strong advocate. I think she’s a great representative for this country.”
Donald Trump never wanted to be president for the financial perks – he was already one of the world’s richest men. In addition to paying his own way when it comes to time off, he has also famously turned down the standard presidential salary, opting instead to receive the minimum of $1 per year. So in summary, President Trump’s taking only $1/year instead of a $400,000/year salary. The First Family will also fund their own personal vacations. Whereas, by comparison Obama’s vacations cost close to $100 million over 8 years. That’s already a HUGE amount of dollars and savings for the hardworking, taxpaying Americans and that’s just comparing Trump’s salary and travel.
In addition, the First Lady Melania has vowed to keep her staff to a minimum. So far, she has hired Lindsay Reynolds as Chief of Staff, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff as a Senior Adviser, and is looking at Natalie Jones as new social secretary. Whereas by comparison, Michelle Obama had a staff of 24. Wow! Still more savings for taxpaying Americans!
Looks to me like the Trump First Family is off to a good start at “living within” reasonable means like most of other hardworking, taxpaying Americans. The Trump First Family is personally helping to control waste and spending which is a small start towards paying off the hefty deficit that Obama left – close to a $20 TRILLION debt for America.
One more important issue of note, First Lady Melania will be working towards her mission of preventing cyberbullying of adolescents while in office. This is another stark contrast from First Lady Michelle Obama, who some might say left a bit of an aftertaste, especially among many school children.
Thank you Lord! God Bless America!
Donald Trump and his wife Melania are perfect for the job. With their leadership, we can start moving towards an accountable government and a limited government. With the Obamas out of office, we can finally expect hope and change.
Unlike the Obama era, we now have a First Family that actually cares about our tax dollars. Melania will show our country that if you want a lavish vacation, you need to earn it yourself, and you should not expect patriots to cover the bill.
