President Donald Trump’s administration is moving forward with plans to privatizing federal websites, according to a senior administration official, as it looks to streamline the federal government’s work.
The plan is a major victory for Trump, who has long criticized the federal bureaucracies role in handling the federal economy.
The White House is currently developing a “public-private partnership” that would allow the government to offer websites for free to small businesses, according the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the plan publicly.
The private marketplace would allow government agencies and nonprofits to offer free websites to businesses, businesses and non-profits for a small fee, according a senior White House official who spoke to The American Conservatives.
The government would also be free to sell its own websites.
“The government is working on this as a public-private partnerships, a partnership between the federal, state and local governments, as well as nonprofits,” the official said.
The officials’ comments on the public-public partnership were first reported by The American Press.
The Trump administration is also planning to sell the government’s websites through a federal partnership, according, to the official.
The administration has made no secret of the desire to privatify the federal website, with the official telling The American Watchdog that the government was planning to make the site “publically available” to the public.
“This is about simplifying the process for small businesses,” the White House said in a statement, referring to the private marketplace.
“The private market will also give small businesses the flexibility to sell their own sites for lower prices.”
While the official did not name the nonprofit groups or businesses that the White Hill government would sell the sites to, the proposal would allow for government contractors to take over a federal website.
The announcement came as Trump has been working on a sweeping overhaul of the U.S. tax code that is intended to lower the top rate on the wealthiest Americans to 15 percent, and to streamlines the way federal agencies work.
Trump has said he will unveil the plan at a White House ceremony on Friday.
The proposal is also seen as a response to an increasing number of complaints about the federal workforce and a growing number of small business owners, as Trump tries to overhaul the federal bureaucracy.
While the Trump administration has not released any details on the plan, The American Center for Law and Justice, which represents nonprofit and nonprofit government employees, said the administration is considering closing some federal sites in order to simplify the process.
The group’s national president, Chad Griffin, said he is “very concerned” that the administration will use the “public marketplace” to privatise the federal websites.
Griffin said the plan will lead to “the closure of over 200,000 government websites, including the IRS, EPA, Department of Education, Department the U-M, and other government agencies.”
“The idea is that they are going to put it out there and it’s going to be available for everybody,” Griffin said.
“It will be a big win for Trump and for the White Hills government, because they are already under enormous pressure from small businesses.”
President Donald Trump speaks at a press conference on Jan. 27, 2021 in the Roosevelt Room of the Whitehouse.
President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order on Monday that directs the Department of Homeland Security to privatizes its website to allow for the sale of government-owned websites.
