Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is determined to drain the swamp in Washington DC. In order to achieve that goal as soon as possible, he is proposing some drastic changes within the State Department.
Part of those changes will include major cuts – a total of 2,300 jobs.
Tillerson is proposing to eliminate 2,300 jobs as part of a plan to cut more than a quarter of the State Department’s budget for the next fiscal year, according to officials. Considering the continuous sabotage Democrats are plotting against everything introduced by the Trump administration, the plan is already expected to meet resistance from lawmakers opposing President Donald Trump’s proposal to shrink the size of the federal government.
According to officials briefed on the proposal, this major cut in the State Department will reduce the number of new diplomats being hired and will include the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development’s possible consolidation. The staff cuts would amount to about 3 percent of the department’s roughly 75,000-strong workforce, reports American Lookout.
Tillerson’s proposal comes as a response to the Office of Management and Budget’s call to slash the State Department and USAID budgets by 31 percent through deep cuts to foreign aid and other programs, said the officials, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the as-yet unreleased plan and requested anonymity.
Officials added that Tillerson’s plan would entail a 26 percent budget reduction.
This proves that President Trump made an excellent choice in hiring Rex Tillerson. Both of them obviously take their job very seriously, and that is exactly what this country needs. The American people waited for too long for leadership that will actually care for them and for our economy. Each day, we are one step closer to making America great again!
