(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Former President Donald Trump has released a new campaign policy proposal that would expand the powers given to the President. The New York Times in a recent report cited not only the proposal but also interviews given by those in Trump’s circle to showcase how Trump is planning on bringing previously independent agencies, including the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission under the control of the President.
The report also noted that Trump was planning on bringing back the practice of “impounding” funds which was originally banned during the Nixon administration. According to this practice, the President would be allowed to refuse to follow the spending allotments that Congress has decided on.
Trump is also planning on removing employment protection for thousands of civil servants, as well as completely wiping the slate clean in regard to the State Department, Defense, and intelligence agencies. Former White House personnel chief John McEntee pointed out that this plan would completely alter the federal government in a way that has not been achieved since “FDR’s New Deal.”
He added that the executive branch has been created by liberals in a way that would best serve their policies and priorities and that the existing structure could not work well for the conservatives. He claimed that having the proper personnel was not enough and that what was actually needed is a complete overhaul of the system.
This is something that Trump has already outlined both during his rallies and campaign website according to the report.
