Would Donald Trump be the Only President to Task Cabinet with Cutting Waste?
“We are going to ask every Department Head in government to provide a list of wasteful spending projects that we can eliminate in my first 100 days. The politicians have talked about this for years, but I’m going to do it.” — Donald Trump, July 21, 2016
Would this really be an innovation? Fact Check:
“In its first meeting, the President asked his Cabinet to cut to their administrative budgets, and they responded by identifying 77 cost-saving measures, amounting to $243 million in savings through 2010.”
That President was Obama, not Trump.
