President Donald Trump has reportedly planned on appointing Jared Kushner, his son-in-law, as the head of the newly developed innovation team at the White House. The new team is intended to revamp the Federal bureaucracy by formulating tactics that can help improve the business.
According to reports, the White House Office of American Innovation is all set to function as a SWAT team of strategic consultants who are expected to work as a team with their own politically unbiased strategies. Kushner, who is a former realtor and media executive, is a senior advisor to President Trump. The innovation office team is now working with a number of major business executives such as Tesla's Elon Musk, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Microsoft's Bill Gates, and Apple CEO Tim Cook.
According to Kushner, there needs to be excellence in the government. He further noted in The Washington Post interview that the government needs to be run as if a huge American business venture. Kushner hopes of achieving success with the new strategies for the citizens, whom he referred to as customers.
With the primary focus on the data and technology aspects, the innovation team is reportedly set to modernize the digital setup of all the Federal agencies. The team will plan on rebooting the training programs for the workforce and will also enhance the Veteran Affairs. With that, the team led by Kushnet aims at developing transformative projects which are going to be backed up by President Trump's $1 trillion infrastructure scheme. The plan also notes of offering broadband internet services for all American citizens in the future.
In support of the above statement, President Trump noted that all the citizens of the US can see that the inactivity in the government has hindered the way the country is currently functioning, the political views are left behind, CNBC reported. He further quoted that this has led to a complicated atmosphere with high costs and unnecessary delays. Trump stated to The Washington Post that he promised the citizens of the country to bring up results for which he has applied the schedule in advance of the schedule and that too within the budget.
