President Donald Trump signed a new executive order on Monday, calling on every segment of the American public to share their suggestions for fixing broken areas of government.
“All Americans will be able to submit suggestions and ideas on how to make government work better for them,” the White House said on their website.
“Our moral duty to the taxpayer requires us to make our government leaner and more accountable. We must do a lot more with less,” Trump said in a release.
The release also quoted a speech from Trump’s campaign trail before he won the presidency, in which he describes his approach to a leaner government.
“I will ask that savings be accomplished through common-sense reforms that eliminate government waste and budget gimmicks — and that protect, absolutely protect, hard-earned benefits for Americans,” he said.
Mick Mulvaney, head of the Office of Management and Budget and a notable “budget hawk,” was standing next to Trump as he signed the executive order.
“Based on this input, we will develop a detailed plan to make the federal government work better, reorganizing, consolidating and eliminating where necessary,” Trump said. “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 also informed that he had directed the OMB head “to submit a comprehensive plan to reorganize executive branch departments and agencies,” reports Conservative Tribune.
“Each agency and department will submit a detailed report including ideas for concrete improvements to enhance its efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability,” the President added.
Conservative groups have expressed their optimism about the new executive order, saying they believed it would return power from Washington to the American people.
