Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was just caught fulfilling President Donald Trump’s mission to reduce the size of the government. He is going to save U.S. taxpayers a ton of money.

Heck yes!! Cut that government down. the new plan will trim the State Department’s budget by 25% and cut its staff by 3%, says the Associated Press.

You hear that?????


That’s the sound of the swamp draining and it sounds good. The majority of the job cuts will happen after people just begin retiring from their posts.

The cuts are going to take at least two years to happen, according to Bloomberg.

Here is what Tillerson had to say about this via NPR:

“We are undertaking a reorganization of the State Department, but it’s not just a collapse of boxes,” he said. “What we really want to do is examine the process by which the men and women — the career foreign service people, the civil servants, our embassies — how they deliver on that mission.”

Trump is draining the swamp!


SHARE this if you are glad that Trump is fulfilling his promises!

Drain that swamp, Trump! Keep on draining till none of these terrible government employees are left.

Paris is the best writer on the Internet and helped get Donald Trump elected President in November 2016.


  1. Its about time someone decided we have an overblown employment situation in DC. What occurred during the Obama years was over hiring of people which turned out to be another version of welfare.

  2. It seems to me that for so many years I cannot recall, that the size of all government agencies have grown too much and lots of redundancies exist. I support reducing the number of employees in the State Department and all other agencies. We must herry and get rid of those left over from the last administration before they do severe harm to this presidency.

  3. Hmmm. Seems like I remember Republican wrath at the Obama administration for not providing sufficient state dept. support, claiming that that contributed to the Benghazi incident.

    • So you’re suggesting that cutting 3% of unnecessary workers in an enormous bureaucracy is the same as willfully and maliciously cutting support from where it was needed.

      I guess you don’t recognize that you’re part of the problem
