President Donald Trump signed an executive order called “Comprehensive Plan For Organizing The Executive Branch” on Monday. According to the Associated Press, Trump signed the order to streamline the executive branch, saying that it aims to examine every federal department and agency “to see where the money is being wasted, how services can be improved, and whether programs are truly serving American citizens.” It was signed by the president in the Oval Office among Cabinet members.

While criticizing the wastage of monetary resources, Trump claimed that “there is duplication and redundancy everywhere.” According to Tribune Media, he said, “Today we’re beginning the process of a long-overdue reorganizing of our federal departments and agencies. We’ve assembled one of the greatest cabinets in history and — I believe that so strongly — and we want to empower them to make their agencies as lean and effective as possible, and they know how to to it.”

According to the president, the Office of Management and Budget will conduct the assessment. Trump said Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney is expected to consult with experts within the government as well as the public, according to NPR. The plan would be submitted to the Congress for implementation after it is evaluated.
