Report: President Trump Just Booted 70 Obama Holdovers – Good Riddance

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

President Trump is cleaning house at the NSC.

Reports indicate that 70 Obama-era officials have been given the heave-ho.

I just wish these Obama-leakers and traitors would have been booted eons ago.

President Trump is making good on his promises to “drain the swamp” and cut Obama-era holdovers from his staffs, especially the critical and recently controversial National Security Council.

Officials confirmed that Trump and national security adviser Robert O’Brien have cut 70 positions inherited from former President Barack Obama, who had fattened the staff to 200.

Many were loaners from other agencies and have been sent back. Others left government work.

Last week President Trump booted coup-master Alex Vindman and his twin brother, along with Ambassador Sondland, who was one of Rep. Schiff’s “star witnesses” in the useless impeachment sham.

President Trump addressed the ousting of Vindman on in a pair of fiery tweets.

“Fake News @CNN & MSDNC keep talking about “Lt. Col.” Vindman as though I should think only how wonderful he was. Actually, I don’t know him, never spoke to him, or met him (I don’t believe!) but, he was very insubordinate, reported contents of my “perfect” calls incorrectly, &…”

“….was given a horrendous report by his superior, the man he reported to, who publicly stated that Vindman had problems with judgement, adhering to the chain of command and leaking information. In other words, “OUT”.”

This news comes on the heels of a report that the White House has identified the “anonymous” #Resistance official who wrote that New York Times article trashing President Trump and claiming to be “taking hin down” from the inside.

Let’s hope President Trump keeps up this house cleaning so he’s ready for his second term.
