Republican nominee Donald Trump has made it clear that he has big plans for American when he becomes president. And some of those plans are already in motion, despite the best effort of some government employees.
Presidents have the important responsibility of appointing people to certain governmental positions. In a true testament to his leadership skills, Trump is already thinking about who he wants in those positions.
Now, reports are showing that Trump’s campaign was drawing up a list of federal government employees appointed by President Obama. Trump has serious plans to fire them and clean house if he wins the election. As if that weren’t enough to have Obama’s blood boiling, Trump is also reportedly planning to ask Congress to pass legislation that would make it easier to fire public workers.
“As you know from his other career, Donald likes to fire people,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie joked at a closed-door meeting during the RNC. Christie then warned that President Obama may convert his appointees to civil servants, who are much harder to fire.
“It’s called burrowing,” he commented. “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 Clinton people took all the Ws off the keyboard when George Bush was coming into the White House.”
Of course, Trump is planning for Obama’s manipulative ways.
“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,” Christie concluded. “Because if they do, it will make it a lot easier to fire those people.”
