MAGA King Former President Donald Trump spoke at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit over the weekend and told the crowd that an executive order he put in place during his first term will help “drain the swamp.”
Brandon’s anti-American, anti-Constitution and anti-capitalist policies have moved the country into dark times, and Trump took little time in not only criticizing Sleepy Joe’s poor decision-making, but the bloated administrative state full of unelected bureaucrats who push his agenda. In his speech to a packed house, Trump referred to his schedule F executive order, which requires agency heads to present lists of employees who have roles influencing policy, and then moving these employees to category “Schedule F” in order to eliminate employment protection. In other words, in order to help drain the swamp, Schedule F would allow him to fire the swamp, something he said he would do if he is re-elected in 2024.
“To drain the swamp, we need to fire the swamp. With schedule F, I took executive action to make it possible to fire federal employees who are bypassing our democracy to advance wokeism and corruption,” Trump said as reported by Breitbart.
The former president invoked the line he made famous during his tenure hosting reality show “The Apprentice”: “We now need Congress to institute historic reforms to permanently empower the President to root out the Deep State, and ensure that any bureaucrat who is corrupt, incompetent, or unnecessary can be told, ‘You’re fired.’”
Late last week news outlet Axios reported that Trump will use the executive order to fire tens of thousands of government bureaucrats if he gets back into the White House:

The Axios report detailed how the swamp bypasses the separation of powers and creates a “state within a state” with no real oversight:
The administrative state uses its rule-making ability to essentially usurp the separation of powers between the three branches of government by creating a so-called fourth branch of government not created by the Constitution. Nearly 2 million federal government employees in federal agencies make up the administrative state. Trump has referred to the administrative state as the “swamp.”
Although Trump signed the schedule F executive order before he left office in 2021, newly inaugurated President Brandon cancelled the executive order when he took over that same month.
But Trump didn’t just talk about the swamp. He called out the “climate crisis hoax,” referring to it and the hysteria it produces “a total lie”:
“First: we have to defeat the Climate Crisis Hoax once and for all. For decades, the left has made it a religious crusade to bully and scare young people into believing the world is ending because of climate change—or in the case of AOC, that the planet is doomed in just 12 years. This is a total lie.”
NEW: Trump is going to promote a “Schedule F” executive order in a speech tonight, saying that if he wins a second term he will take more power for the presidency and use it to purge the federal government of civil servants. https://t.co/p9epOvMWZi

Trump also said Brandon’ threats to declare a “climate emergency” constitutes an “energy emergency” built by “climate fanaticism”:
“This very week, the White House has even threatened to declare a NATIONAL EMERGENCY. But we don’t have a CLIMATE Emergency, we have an ENERGY emergency—caused by their climate fanaticism.”
And Trump warned the audience that the real threat is not climate, but government using it as an excuse to amass more power over the energy sector, which impacts everything we do:
“As we are now vividly seeing, the real threat to future generations is NOT Global Warming, it is the Green New Deal. Without abundant, reliable, and affordable energy, there is no civilization.”
