The Federal Government Undergoing Massive Reform Under Trump
President Trump has been quietly draining the swamp by reforming and restructuring the bloated bureaucracy. The swamp is pushing back, but the outdated way of doing business is in the Trump administrations crosshairs.

According to the Washington Examiner:

President Trump is taking charge of his administration’s effort to reform the federal government and workforce, the biggest demonstration yet that Washington is under new management.

Aides describe the president as personally invested in the 32-point plan to shake the bureaucracy out of a 1950s model based on secretarial pools.

“So much of the ability to drive change requires a fresh perspective,” said Margaret Weichert, an author of the recently announced reform blueprint and deputy director for management at the Office of Management and Budget.


Legislation has already been introduced to begin making Trump’s reforms, headlined by a plan to revamp the federal workforce, reform IT and add automation, and combine the Education and Labor departments so that schools can focus more on filling the nation’s skills gap like some European school systems do.

Congress needs to get to work to help President Trump reform Washington. The more they drag their feet the more apparent it becomes that they are ok with the status quo.
