Trump’s Latest Executive Order Changes Hiring Standards For Federal Jobs

President Trump signed an executive order Friday afternoon that prioritizes skills and knowledge, not simply academic degree requirements, as qualifications for federal employment.

During an event at the White House, President Trump called the current system “really outdated.”

“The federal government will no longer be narrowly focused on where you went to school but the skills and the talents that you bring to the job. We want that skill to be there,” Trump said.

Take a look at the tweets below:

Academia has drifted too far to the left. It’s all about progressive ideology.

We could use more people in government who have real life skills, experience and common sense.
