President Donald Trump signed a major executive order this week that will begin the process of reorganizing the federal government.
Western Journalism reported that Trump signed the Comprehensive Plan For Reorganizing The Executive Branch, saying it was a “major step towards making the federal government efficient, effective and accountable.”
Trump explained that the order will allow Cabinet members to revamp their departments.
“We have assembled one of the greatest Cabinets in history and I believe that so strongly,” the president 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 the order said 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,” Trump said.
