... President Trump Delivers First Private Sector Reform Example To Career Public Sector Officials…
Splendid. More Winning – This is a brilliant level of strategic example-setting on many levels. Not only does this send an expectation message normally only found in the private sector; but it also is delivered upon the most horribly entrenched of all Federal Departments, the Department of State.
These Department of State entities see themselves as a complete and separate structure of government. They also function as a complete and separate ideological structure of government. Remember, Congressional Democrats already poked the LION when they set up a portal for disgruntled State Department employees to directly contact them.
WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition staff has issued a blanket edict requiring politically appointed ambassadors to leave their overseas posts by Inauguration Day, according to several American diplomats familiar with the plan, breaking with decades of precedent by declining to provide even the briefest of grace periods.
[Trump] has taken a hard line against leaving any of President Obama’s political appointees in place as he prepares to take office on Jan. 20 with a mission of dismantling many of his predecessor’s signature foreign and domestic policy achievements. “Political” ambassadors, many of them major donors who are nominated by virtue of close ties with the president, almost always leave at the end of his term; ambassadors who are career diplomats often remain in their posts.
A senior Trump transition official said there was no ill will in the move, describing it as a simple matter of ensuring that Mr. Obama’s overseas appointees leave the government on schedule, just as thousands of political aides at the White House and in federal agencies must do. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity about internal deliberations, said the ambassadors should not be surprised about being held to a hard end date. (read more)
