Report: Trump Has a ‘Radical’ Plan to Drain the Swamp If Reelected

President Trump may have failed to fully “drain the swamp” the first time around, but if he runs and wins a second term, he reportedly could be planning to purge the government of “tens of thousands of civil servants.”

While more than 4,000 political appointees are usually replaced between administrations, Axios reports that Trump’s “top allies” are readying to “radically reshape the federal government” with America First loyalists.

The heart of the plan is derived from an executive order known as “Schedule F,” developed and refined in secret over most of the second half of Trump’s term and launched 13 days before the 2020 election. […]

Trump signed an executive order, “Creating Schedule F in the Excepted Service,” in October 2020, which established a new employment category for federal employees. It received wide media coverage for a short period, then was largely forgotten in the mayhem and aftermath of Jan. 6 — and quickly was rescinded by President Biden.

Sources close to Trump say that if he were elected to a second term, he would immediately reimpose it.

Schedule F could apply to upwards of 50,000 junior and mid-level government workers. But the sources Axios spoke with said changing bad behavior wouldn’t require purging that many federal employees.

Even if Trump did not deploy Schedule F to this extent, the very fact that such power exists could create a significant chilling effect on government employees.

It would effectively upend the modern civil service, triggering a shock wave across the bureaucracy. The next president might then move to gut those pro-Trump ranks — and face the question of whether to replace them with her or his own loyalists, or revert to a traditional bureaucracy.

Such pendulum swings and politicization could threaten the continuity and quality of service to taxpayers, the regulatory protections, the checks on executive power, and other aspects of American democracy.

Trump’s allies claim such pendulum swings will not happen because they will not have to fire anything close to 50,000 federal workers to achieve the result, as one source put it, of “behavior change.” Firing a smaller segment of “bad apples” among the career officials at each agency would have the desired chilling effect on others tempted to obstruct Trump’s orders.

Conservatives on social media cheered on the report.

    America will be so tired of Biden (bad cop) that Trump (good cop) will walk in and do ANY THING he wants. Good ol WARP-SPEED TRUMP!
    You know, America would have NEVER tolerated any Lock-down or Masks, with Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton. Or by-pass a 10 YEAR SAFETY PROOF of a Vaxx that has killed far more than what the Covid did – is a FCKNG FACT!
    ONLY Trump could have gotten away with any of it. That is why he was allowed to become Pres., and to DIVIDE the nation even more, by Media PROGRAMMING.
    Trump is as much a FRAUD as the rest. Doesn’t take a moron to make America Great. Just got to work for America. Easy to play that game, until you need WARP-SPEED, LOCK-DOWNS and MASKS, FREE STIMULUS – printing money into oblivion. Warp-Speed PROVES Trump is as much a Globalist PUKE as Joe Biden. He will bring our Nation under TOTAL CONTROL of the Globalist Great Reset, the same as he did with Covid. Wasn’t Biden. It was Trump.

      Exactly! Absolutely agree! — You are one of the very few who understand that. Trump gave every conservative high hopes — and then stabbed us ALL in the back. As you said: It WAS Trump who was totally on board – from the beginning – with the Fake Pandemic – allowed Big Pharma to force their DNA modifying slow death poison jabs on everyone while he personally pushed them on the nation as mandatory — along with the lock-downs – forced dangerous mask mandates – and then went along with the largest wealth transfer in history at taxpayer expense – bankrupting the country. THAT was Trump — NOT Biden! Biden simply continued the insanity as of course a Commie Liberal would — handed to him on golden platter by Trump! — Trump also gave the Commie Liberals the largest gift they could ever hope to get by giving his personal support of Red Flag confiscation gun laws — making a person a criminal by hearsay – without due process. THAT can NEVER be forgiven! – EVER! — AND: Trump KNEW as we all did, that the Commie Liberals were planning to steal the election – Biden even clearly stated they would do it during his campaign speeches – “we have the best election fraud in place that money can buy” — and YET – Trump did absolutely NOTHING about it. NOTHING! He played the “game” because he well knew that being the “victim” of a stolen election would put him on top of the MAGA craze for a very long time –giving him power over his “faithful believers” like nothing else could have done – to feed his ego and bank account with one enormous rally after another — preaching the same old totally empty Trump-BS to everyone – pretending to be the savior of the American Republic while actually being the Trojan Horse the Commie Liberals need to blind-side conservatives while doing whatever they want to do. We do NOT need him as President again – but I hope we don’t get someone worse. DeSantis with one of the proven conservatives as VP – like the governor of South Dakota would be our best hope. BUT — unfortunately – the Trump MAGA craze is very much alive and well – so the next Republican convention will most likely be a huge Clown-fest show of idiots who don’t have the foggiest idea of what is really going on.
