REPORT: The Federal Government Has Cut Over 20,000 Jobs Under Trump

Liberals won’t like this news but small government conservatives certainly will. In the short time that Trump has been president, the federal government has cut thousands of jobs from our bloated bureaucracy. Over twenty thousand jobs to be more precise. This is a great start to draining the swamp.

CNS News reports:

Federal Government Has Cut 21,000 Jobs Under Trump

The federal government cut an additional 1,000 jobs in March, bringing the total number of federal government jobs eliminated since President Donald Trump took office to 21,000, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In December 2016, the month before Trump was inaugurated, the federal government employed 2,810,000. In March 2018, that was down to 2,789,000.

While the federal workforce has been downsizing since December 2016, the overall government workforce in the United States has been increasing—thanks to an increase in employment by local governments.

Total government employment in the country (including federal, state and local government employment) has climb by 20,000 since December 2016—rising from 22,306,000 that month to 22,326,000 this March.

This illustrates a great point about Trump that liberals will never understand. This is one of the main reasons why people voted for Trump. Because he cares more about the American people than the pecking order in Washington, DC.
