Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump already has some major plans in the works, and he announced today what he has in store for Barack Obama’s political appointees.
Presidents have the task of appointing people to various positions throughout government, and the task remains the same from president to president. When Trump takes office, he’ll have to honor of picking whoever he wants for said positions, and he’s already planning ahead for it.
However, before he makes any appointments or nominations, he decided that a good, old fashioned house cleaning is in order, and he’s putting some serious work into it. According to a report from Reuters, Trump’s team is going through the government with a fine-toothed comb and drafting a list of people that Obama has nominated or appointed, and if he’s elected in November, they’ll be hearing The Donald’s catch phrase on his first day in office – “You’re Fired!”
Speaking at a closed-doors meeting at the RNC Convention, N.J. Gov. Chris Christie revealed to a group of donors that he, along with the rest of Team Trump, will work to ensure the government is purged of Obama’s political operatives. During the meeting, Christie reassured the audience that Trump wouldn’t have any issues cleaning house since, “As you know from his other career, Donald likes to fire people.”
Although before getting too excited, you should know that there is a way for Obama to prevent, or at least slow down Trump’s purge.
“It’s called burrowing,” Christie explained. “You take them from the political appointee side into the civil service side in order to try to set up … roadblocks for your successor, kind of like when all the (former President Bill) Clinton people took all the Ws off the keyboard when George Bush was coming into the White House.”
However, being an experienced legislator, Christie is working on a plan of his own to ensure we can finally remove the stink from government.
“One of the things I have suggested to Donald is that we have to immediately ask the Republican Congress to change the civil service laws,” he said. “Because if they do, it will make it a lot easier to fire those people.”
After hearing this news, Obama’s political operatives, who thought they were safe in their jobs destroying this country, have become fearful they’re going to lose their jobs, and they should be. Trump promised us real change if he was elected to office, and it appears as if he’s going to follow through with it, which is the best thing that could happen for our nation.
After all, just about every Obama Democrat has shown a willingness to put politics above the law, and in doing so has not only eroded the public’s trust in the government, but destroyed the foundation of the rule of law that made our nation the greatest on the planet.
