President Trump is, first and foremost, a businessman, and with that eye for return on investment he views jobs in a different light than most lifetime government employees.
Fortunately, for citizens who have to foot the bill for an out-of-control, bloated government, Trump is determined to make the necessary changes to bring us back from the brink of financial disaster.
President Donald Trump was elected in part for bringing his multi-billion dollar business mind into the White House to find effective way of slashing federal spending.
In his first six months, Trump has cut almost 11,000 federal employees.
The Trump administration has shed nearly 11,000 federal employees during its first six months, reversing a two year trend of gains throughout the executive branch.
The number dropped an additional 2,200 just this month as Trump continues to slash the size of the federal government:
A July jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Friday showed non-postal federal agencies employed 2,188,900 workers at the end of the month, down 2,200 from June and 10,700 from January, when Trump took office. President Trump has prioritized shrinking the civilian workforce, issuing an executive order — and follow up guidance through the Office of Management and Budget — calling on agencies to develop short and long-term strategies to cut employees. Agencies turned in preliminary drafts for those plans on June 30, which also required leaders to spell out what steps they have already taken to trim their rolls.
Compared to previous administrations, Trump has set a new bar for the presidency:
Trump’s comparatively small purge is unusual among his immediate predecessors; President Obama added 60,000 federal workers in his first six months in office, while President George W. Bush increased the rolls by more than 36,000.
