Trump promises to terminate federal workers who fail a political test if elected 2023

Former president Donald Trump stated that if he returns to the White House in 2025, he will require federal employees to complete a civil service exam or face termination.

A video of the former president’s remarks was released on Friday.

“I will require every federal employee to pass a new civil service exam demonstrating knowledge of our constitutionally limited government,” he said.

Mr. Trump stated that the test would include knowledge of due process rights, equal protection, free speech, religious liberty, and the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizure, which prompted him to reference the August search of his Mar-a-Lago estate for classified documents by the FBI.

“We will return unelected bureaucrats to their proper place, liberalize the US economy, and attract millions of jobs and trillions of dollars to our shores.”

Mr. Trump has previously advocated for new federal employee requirements. In March of the previous year, he advocated for legislation that would make every executive branch employee subject to termination by the president.

He stated at the time, “We will pass critical reforms making every executive branch employee subject to termination by the president of the United States.” “The deep state must be brought to heel, and it will be. It is already occurring.”

Throughout his presidency, Mr. Trump consistently attacked various executive branch officials, such as when he fired FBI director James Comey and frequently attacked his attorney general Jeff Sessions.

Mr. Trump was recently indicted and arraigned in Manhattan on 34 offenses related to allegedly paying Stormy Daniels hush money. He is also the subject of a federal investigation led by Special Counsel Jack Smith, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate his retaining of classified documents and his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, including his actions on January 6.
