President Trump Creates New White House Office
President Donald Trump has asked his son-in-law Jared Kushner to lead a new office in the White House with the sole purpose over innovating the government. This means backing and completing campaign promises, and possibly also privatizing some of the various bureaucratic functions.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The group, led by Jared Kushner, consists of National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, assistant to the president for strategic initiatives Chris Liddell, assistant to the president for intergovernmental and technology initiatives Reed Cordish, deputy national security adviser Dina Powell and Domestic Policy Council Director Andrew Bremberg.
“It meets twice a week in Kushner’s West Wing office and is expected to help attain some of the major promises Trump made on the campaign trail, such as reforming Veterans Affairs and fighting the opioid epidemic but using business tactics to do so.”
Kushner To Drastically Update Government
Specifically, Kushner wants to drastically update the technology with the federal departments and agency, while also remodeling workforce-training programs who create broadband for Americans.
Trump told The Washington Post:
“All Americans, regardless of their political views, can recognize that government stagnation has hindered our ability to properly function, often creating widespread congestion and leading to cost overruns and delays. I promised the American people I would produce results, and apply my ‘ahead of schedule, under budget’ mentality to the government.”
The Government Should Run Like American Business
Kushner, like Trump and Rex Tillerson, wants the government to run more “like a great American company,” than it has under the Obama administration. “Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens,” confirmed Kushner.
For those individuals concerned with Trump’s choice to run this division, it’s also been reported that neither Steve Bannon nor Ivanka Trump, will have roles within this new White House office.
