Trump May Refuse to Fill Hundreds of Bureaucrats’ Jobs

A president devoted to whittling down the civil service? Can it be?

From the Washington Examiner.

President Trump doesn’t plan to fill many of the hundreds of appointed political jobs in his administration because he thinks they’re unnecessary.

In an interview with Fox News, Trump said he’s been hit for not filling about 1,200 administration jobs that require Senate confirmation, but people don’t understand that he’s not trying to fill many of those jobs.

“A lot of those jobs, I don’t want to appoint someone because they’re unnecessary to have,” Trump said. “In government, we have too many people.”

  1. The smaller the government-the better.

    On another note-President Trump has broken ground at Mira Lago for a helicopter pad to be installed. Palm Beach County has approved it but it must be taken out after his presidency is over. The Palm Beach residents wont have to sit in traffic waiting for the large motorcade to pass through when he visits his second home.

  2. President Trump can start with the EPA.
    When the tree-huggers at the at the EPA start bitching about their department getting cut, remember this.
    d spending six hours a day surfing illicit images and videos and maintaining tens of thousands of adult images on their office desktops,” the report said.

    The investigation revealed over 20 cases at the Justice Department during the past two years, and numerous cases at the Environmental Protection Agency.

    The report includes the notorious case of an EPA employee in the Office of Air and Radiation who, while earning a $120,000 salary, watched porn between two and six hours every day, masturbated at work, and received bonuses.
    And just WTF is the Office of Air and Radiation?
    Other than watching porn, WTF do they do?
    Drain this f’kng swamp President Trump.
