On January 24th, President Trump initiated a hiring freeze for his goal to reduce the size of government. Fox News reported that the “executive order implementing a hiring freeze across the federal government, [the only] exceptions [would be] for military, national security or public safety personnel.” Brilliant move! And it’s working! Sarah Sanders sent a message LOUD AND CLEAR the Obama Administration’s goal to expand government has been curbed!
Yesterday, Sarah revealed that Obama had increased government jobs by 188,000. Whereas, in the first year under President Trump, big government is down 16,000 federal bureaucrats! See the tweet below.
Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, broadcasts a message across D.C. bureaucrats on Twitter!
Bigger government under Obama: +188,000 federal bureaucrats
— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) December 31, 2017
Yesterday The Hill reported:
“…the staff cuts represented a fulfillment of President Trump‘s campaign promise to make cuts in the federal bureaucracy and reverse former President Obama’s hiring expansion.” And “White House spokesman Raj Shah told the Post that the President “is committed to streamlining government for the 21st century, reducing bloat, duplication and waste, and focusing resources on key priorities like public safety and protecting our nation’s homeland.”
Promises Made and Promises Kept across the board!
One of President Trump’s campaign promises was to shrink the government. In January of 2017 he initiated a hiring freeze. Then on March 13th he signed an executive order to reduce the size of government. There is no question that President Trump is following through on his campaign promise! And Sarah let everyone know to expect more trimming of the waste!
Heather Nezich quoted the President as saying:
“We will develop a plan to make the federal government work better, reorganizing, consolidating and eliminating where necessary.” He added there is “duplication and redundancy everywhere,” with “billions and billions of dollars” being wasted on activities that do not deliver results.”
In Sarah’s tweet, she referenced Axios who reported:
“by the end of September, all Cabinet departments except Homeland Security, Veterans Affairs and Interior had fewer permanent staff than when Trump took office in January — with most shedding many hundreds of employees, according to an analysis of federal personnel data by The Washington Post.”
