When President Trump entered the White House, he had a bigger problem than anyone might have expected.
It turns out Obama really stacked the deck against him. He expanded the size of government to record, bloated levels.
Numerous offices had twice (or more) the number of staff than in previous administrations.
On top of that, Obama left behind loyalists, it turns out, weren’t fans of Trump. Many think men like Vindman and Sondland tried to paint Trump in a bad light during impeachment with their opinion, hard evidence.
But our President has been quietly busy draining the swamp. And he just finished draining 70 from a bloated organization.
From Washington Examiner:
President Trump is making good on his promises to “drain the swamp” and cut Obama-era holdovers from his staffs, especially the critical and recently controversial National Security Council.
Officials confirmed that Trump and national security adviser Robert O’Brien have cut 70 positions inherited from former President Barack Obama, who had fattened the staff to 200.
Talk about good news! You may have heard over the weekend how President Trump fired Alexander Vindman.
This member of the National Security Council appeared before the House impeachment inquiry. Vindman turned on Donald Trump—accusing him of “pressuring” Ukraine for a quid-pro-quo, based on his opinion.
Now Vindman’s gone. But that was only for starters. Trump got rid of Sondland, another man who testified against him.
Aaaaaaand 70 other D.C. swamp dwellers over the last 6 months!
Not only did Trump cut the bloated size of the office—saving taxpayers money—but he got rid of people who got their jobs from Obama.
These were people who have worked in government for years. It seems their loyalties are to the Democrats or just the insiders of D.C.
You might be wondering why Trump kept them around until now. Well, the man’s been busy! He’s been undoing the mess Obama made of this country over the last three years.
Maybe some of these swamp dwellers pretended to be allies—until the House launched its impeachment scheme.
Now the masks have come off—and Trump’s taken off his gloves. These seventy staffers might be the first of many.
SHARE to tell everyone how Trump is quietly draining the swamp!
