During his administration, former President Obama increased government spending in the trillions of dollars that were wasted by bloated government bureaucracies and unnecessary redundancies in operations.
But President Trump has a solution for all of that government wastefulness.
Trump plans to reorganize the federal government to make it leaner and more efficient, with one stroke of the pen.
Via Western Journalism:
President Donald Trump on Monday began a far-reaching reorganization of the federal government.
Trump signed the Comprehensive Plan For Reorganizing The Executive Branch, which he called a “major step towards making the federal government efficient, effective and accountable.”
Trump said the order empowers his Cabinets to revamp their departments.
“We have assembled one of the greatest Cabinets in history and I believe that so strongly,” Trump said. “And we want to empower them to make their agencies as lean and effective as possible and they know how to do it. Today there is duplication and redundancy everywhere. Billions and billions of dollars are being wasted.”
“This order requires a thorough examination of every executive department and agency to see where money is being wasted, how services can be improved and whether programs are truly serving American citizens,” Trump said.
The Office of Management and Budget will oversee the evaluation, which, according to the order, will “reorganize governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies … components of agencies, and agency programs.”
“Based on this input, we will develop a detailed plan to make the federal government work better, reorganizing, consolidating and eliminating where necessary. In other words, making the federal government more efficient and very, very cost productive. So we’re going to do something, I think, very, very special,” he said.
Trump had stated recently that he would not be filling some government jobs that he believed were unnecessary. During a Feb. 28 interview, with FOX & Friends, Trump stated:
“When I see a story about ‘Donald Trump didn’t fill hundreds and hundreds of jobs,’ it’s because, in many cases, we don’t want to fill those jobs,”
“A lot of those jobs, I don’t want to appoint, because they’re unnecessary to have,” Trump said. “You know, we have so many people in government, even me. I look at some of the jobs and it’s people over people over people. I say, ‘What do all these people do?’ You don’t need all those jobs.”

We couldn’t agree more, Mr. President. The best place to start cleaning house is with all of the plush government jobs that amount to little more than glorified paper shufflers!
Then you can move on to the agencies that do nothing but collect their paychecks and get in the way of progress!
I hope I’m not wishing for too much here!
