A Friday article published by Axios outlines Donald Trump’s plan to purge federal government agencies of Deep State loyalists and globalist employees, according to sources close to the 45th president.

Information for the report was compiled over more than three months with more than 24 people close to the former president sharing insider knowledge.
According to the Trump associates, he plans on trimming the fat within the Environmental Protection Agency, the Internal Revenue Service, the Justice Department – including the FBI – and even the NSA, CIA, State Department, Pentagon and other agencies.
“The Donald” will “go after the national security apparatus, ‘clean house’ in the intelligence community and the State Department, target the ‘woke generals’ at the Defense Department, and remove the top layers of the Justice Department and FBI.”
Essentially, the agenda is a continuation of a Trump executive order issued weeks before he left office called “Schedule F,” which was canceled by Biden when he took office.
The plan if Trump is elected to a second term will be to immediately reimpose the executive order.
The sources claim a list of candidates with an “animus against the system” and a commitment to Trump’s America First agenda is being compiled in order to replace establishment bootlickers within the government.
People with the “courage” to stand up to the woke mob and global elite are the type of individuals he’s looking to promote.
The Axios report describes a key problem plaguing the American government for decades, explaining how tens of thousands of federal employees stay in power from one administration to the next.
“New presidents typically get to replace more than 4,000 so-called ‘political’ appointees to oversee the running of their administrations. But below this rotating layer of political appointees sits a mass of government workers who enjoy strong employment protections — and typically continue their service from one administration to the next, regardless of the president’s party affiliation,” the outlet states.
The report claims Trump’s agenda “would effectively upend the modern civil service,” and create an environment where “the next president might then move to gut those pro-Trump ranks.”
However, the anonymous Trump associates say the most likely move will be to rid agencies of a few “bad apples” in leadership positions to send a message to others.
The former POTUS is allegedly keeping a closer circle of advisors than he did during his presidency, specifically game-planning with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.).
One person close to Trump said he “had learned his lesson” from his first presidency and “would never appoint an attorney general who was not completely on board with his agenda.”
The Axios report concludes, “The most important lesson Trump took from his first term relates to who he hires and to whom he listens.”
For example, Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner are said to have been removed from his political inner circle and former Vice President Mike Pence is seen as “an enemy.”
While the article appeared to try and slant Trump’s supposed agenda as a threat to democracy, the average conservative or libertarian will undoubtedly embrace a cleaning of the swamp.
