Melania Costs Taxpayers Significantly Less Than Michelle Obama

Melania Trump is embracing a more active and public schedule as first lady – but she still runs one of the leanest East Wing operations in recent history.

According to a Fox News analysis of White House personnel reports, Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on the first lady’s office payroll in comparison to her predecessor, Michelle Obama.

During then-President Barack Obama’s first year in office, 16 people were listed working for Michelle Obama, earning a combined $1.24 million a year.

This year, just four people were listed working for Melania Trump as of June. Their salaries totaled $486,700.

    1. Michele had her own publicity department working 24/7. Now like Hillary she thinks she has the smarts to tell us how to run a country after the damage done by her husband. /They came in poor, learned the ropes and milked the system for a fifteen million dollar dig in Martha’s vineyard. Biden is also a multimillionaire and he not only set himslef up he has pulled the strings that made the rest of the family very rich. Biden’s track record reads like the Godfather with an Irish accent.

  1. We believe that Michelle Obama was one expensive FL with a huge staff who travelled and vacationed all over the World. She milked the WH for all she could and had her mother live there and sometimes travel with her too?

    1. How ‘small’ they were. Michel’s mother was listed as a paid nanny. She retired with a pension after eight years in the White house.
