If he runs and wins in 2024, former President Donald Trump and his associates intend to make another attempt to “drain the swamp.”
Conservative friends intend to reinstate Schedule F, a Trump-era executive order, in order to fill his government with young professionals who support his policies, according to Axios on Friday.
In 2020, Trump enacted Schedule F. According to the executive order, federal employees who hold “Positions of a confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating character” are included in this group. The people who work in these roles could change in accordance with the executive order during a presidential transition.
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.

The executive order states that career professionals in positions that are often not subject to change as a result of a presidential transition are advantageous to the Federal Government.
Up to 50,000 federal employees may fall under the Schedule F category, giving Trump the authority to fire thousands of them right once. The FBI, the State Department, and the Pentagon could all be targets of the strategy.
During his presidency, Trump’s staff members were not entirely committed to the president’s objectives. Trump fired former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci and former National Security Adviser John Bolton as a result of their well-known tense relationship.
Conservatives are forming a “new inner circle” as Trump keeps hinting that he would run for president in an effort to prevent the Trump administration’s staff uprisings.
In 2021, Stephen Miller, a former senior advisor to President Trump, founded America First Legal, a group that challenges several of Vice President Biden’s policies in court. The organization is now putting together a group of attorneys who could work as general counsel in a future Trump administration.
700 “completely vetted” young individuals have been recruited by American Moment, a group devoted to finding and preparing future employees for all levels of government.
According to sources, a hypothetical Trump government may require up to 10,000 carefully screened candidates to fill open positions.
