DONALD TRUMP WINS PRESIDENCY, WILL BRING MAJOR UPHEAVAL TO FEDERAL GOVERNMENT - November 9, 2016
Trump Upset Promises Massive Change in Government
By Eric Katz, Government Executive
Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, sending the Republican businessman to the White House as the first president-elect with no prior experience in government or the military.
Trump’s unexpected victory sent shockwaves throughout the country and the world, and will likely do the same for federal agencies. Trump has promised to institute a governmentwide hiring freeze on his first day in office and to change civil service laws to ease the firing of disloyal workers. Last month, just 65 percent of federal employees said they were committed to staying in their jobs if Trump were elected.
