Former President Donald Trump and his team have been huddling together at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida for the better part of a year plotting how he plans to return to the White House in 2024.
After handily winning the GOP nomination, which he will if he runs — and we believe he is going to run — Trump will once again fall under major attack by the far-left media propagandists and deep state, all of whom will go to extreme lengths to keep him out of the Oval Office because they are petrified of his ‘America First’ agenda, which empowers citizens and strips power from the governing elite.
But in addition to these plans, Trump made a pledge this week to former U.S. military members discharged because they refused to take the problematic, largely still experimental, and often dangerous COVID-19 vaccine.
Namely, Trump plans to reinstate those “patriots” and more.
“We have to abolish all COVID mandates and lockdowns,” Trump told the Turning Point USA conference in Tampa, Fla., on Saturday. “Rehire every patriot who was shamefully fired from the military, with an apology — we have to give them an apology. And all of their back pay.”
Trump would be well-poised to deliver on this proposal if he’s elected to a second, non-consecutive term in the 2024 presidential election.
The former president has suggested he’s likely to run, with some polling showing Trump with a dominant lead in a tentative 2024 GOP primary.
In the speech, Trump also criticized what he identified as “woke’” cultural policies targeting the military.
“You hear all about the woke stuff… I think a lot of our military laugh it off, but at some point, it really gets in there, you get infected, and it’s bad,” he said.
Regarding Trump’s plans to continue draining the swamp once he gets back into the Oval Office, they will be multifaceted, very targeted, and take into consideration the embedded opposition to his policies.
According to Axios, whose correspondents spent three months interviewing some two dozen Trump insiders and others familiar with the planning, Trump will reimplement “Schedule F,” an executive order he issued just days before the 2020 election and which was quickly rescinded by President Brandon that calls for completely reshaping hundreds of federal agencies.
The plan calls for firing thousands of current bureaucrats and replacing them with young professionals who are all-in with his “MAGA” agenda. Schedule F formed a new category of federal employees who are in “positions of a confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating character,” and allows for those employees to be replaced following a presidential transition.
“The Federal Government benefits from career professionals in positions that are not normally subject to change as a result of a Presidential transition,” the order says.
Former President Trump’s top allies are preparing to radically reshape the federal government if he is re-elected, purging potentially thousands of civil servants and filling career posts with loyalists to him and his “America First” ideology, people involved in the discussions tell Axios.
The impact could go well beyond typical conservative targets such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Internal Revenue Service. Trump allies are working on plans that would potentially strip layers at the Justice Department — including the FBI, and reaching into national security, intelligence, the State Department and the Pentagon, sources close to the former president say.
As many as 50,000 employees could immediately be fired, including many at the Justice Department, Pentagon, and the FBI.
Axios further explained that the Trump effort to reshape government institutions and change their culture, politically, is extensive, multi-layered, and ongoing.
“Well-funded groups are already developing lists of candidates selected often for their animus against the system — in line with Trump’s long-running obsession with draining ‘the swamp,’” the outlet reported. “This includes building extensive databases of people vetted as being committed to Trump and his agenda.”
“The preparations are far more advanced and ambitious than previously reported. What is happening now is an inversion of the slapdash and virtually non-existent infrastructure surrounding Trump ahead of his 2017 presidential transition,” the report continued.
Trump is coming back and he’ll win the nomination. We just need to make sure his election isn’t stolen from him — again.
