Trump Officials Won’t Get Raise After Public Uproar: Report

Trump administration officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, were scheduled to receive a pay raise this Sunday amid a government shut down. But after a public uproar, those officials will not be getting their pay raise.

According to the Washington Post, Pence along with other Trump administration appointees were supposed to get a pay raise, but a public backlash due to the government shutdown stopped those raises.

“Federal agencies have been told to suspend pay raises for top Trump administration officials after an uproar,” the Post reports.

According to the Post, Pence was set to receive a $13,500 raise to $243,500. Cabinet secretaries were going to get an $11,000 raise to $210,700.
