According to the outlet, if reelected in 2024, Trump plans to cut about 50,000 administrative state employees to rein in unelected technocrats in federal government agencies that greatly influence policies impacting American workers.
“The impact could go well beyond typical conservative targets such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Internal Revenue Service,” the report explained. “Trump allies are working on plans that would potentially strip layers at the Justice Department — including the FBI, and reaching into national security, intelligence, the State Department and the Pentagon, sources close to the former president say.”
The term administrative state specifically describes the phenomenon of unaccountable and unelected administrative agencies exercising power to create and enforce their own rules.
The administrative state uses its rule-making ability to essentially usurp the separation of powers between the three branches of government by creating a so-called fourth branch of government not created by the Constitution. Nearly 2 million federal government employees make up the administrative state. Trump has referred to the administrative state as the “swamp.”
Before Trump was ousted, he signed an Executive Order that reclassified federal government employees into “Schedule F.”
This EO allows Trump to enhance accountability and job performance within the bureaucratic agencies, and it’s a KEY part of his plan to destroy the Deep State.
Biden canceled that EO, but when Trump reenters the White House in 2025, he will reinstate that, and the purge will begin immediately.
I can only say that if Trump plans to do this, he has my vote again.
Not to say that I would not have voted for him in the first place, but this is just proof positive that he has my vote.
Trump is not afraid to go toe-toe with these swamp creatures and call them out on their devious ways.
One of the biggest issues in our nation is that our government is completely bloated, which has led to these far-left, woke policies we are seeing today.
The only way we can get back to basics IS by removing these agencies and returning to the limited government we were founded on.
Then maybe we can get our nation back on track.
