So it looks like Trump is going to announce a new office tomorrow that is going to include Business men like Bill gates and Elon musk to take on all kinds of tasks from broadband internet for every American to proposed restructuring of government agency's getting hit with budget cuts and the opiate epidemic . I think this is a great idea getting some of the brightest minds from the private sector together and see what kind of ideas they can come up with the improve the government and make it more efficient and get some new perspective on things going on in the country.Personally I really like that they are going to have a focus on technology since the proposed budget is going to hit the Department of energy hard and set back our exascale supercomputer back by years when the Chinese are announcing that the one they are working on is ahead of schedule and should be ready by 2020, the U.S was set to have one by 2023 but with the agency facing budget cuts its looking like Japan, Europe and Russia might beat us to the punch as well.



Kushner's ambitions for what the new office can achieve are grand. At least to start, the team plans to focus its attention on reimagining Veterans Affairs; modernizing the technology and data infrastructure of every federal department and agency; remodeling workforce-training programs; and developing "transformative projects" under the banner of Trump's $1 trillion infrastructure plan, such as providing broadband Internet service to every American.

In some cases, the office could direct that government functions be privatized, or that existing contracts be awarded to new bidders.

The office will also focus on combating opioid abuse, a regular emphasis for Trump on the campaign trail. The president later this week plans to announce an official drug commission devoted to the problem that will be chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, R. He has been working informally on the issue for several weeks with Kushner, despite reported tension between the two.

Under President Barack Obama, Trump advisers said scornfully, some business leaders privately dismissed their White House interactions as "NATO" meetings - "No action, talk only" - in which they were "lectured," without much follow-up.

Andrew Liveris, chairman and chief executive of Dow Chemical, who has had meetings with the two previous administrations, said the environment under Trump is markedly different.

After he left a recent meeting of manufacturing chief executives with Trump, Liveris said, "Rather than entering a vacuum, I'm getting emails from the president's team, if not every day, then every other day - 'Here's what we're working on.' 'We need another meeting.' 'Can you get us more input on this?' "

Thank-you for finding and sharing this information, WaldekBoleslaw.

It's refreshing to see a President who doesn't get distracted by B.S. peddled by Mainstream Media, or agenda set-backs. Donald Trump is focused like a laser on always moving forward and accomplishing whatever he can. The hallmark of a seasoned, successful chief executive and leader. One who has the integrity to follow-through, as best he can, on his campaign promises.

You know, I believe the same thing! Trump is totally like a lazer! I can't wait till they start wars using lazers instead of real nukes. I could go on, but I won't.

LAZERS I like it!

He mentioned this 'reorganization' before. I mentioned this before here. He will make it sound benevolent. It's not. It's plutocracy, an oligarchy.

Here's a clue:

Andrew Liveris, chairman and chief executive of Dow Chemical, who has had meetings with the two previous administrations, said the environment under Trump is markedly different.


I think that Trump is expecting something from Gates and Musk that he may not find.

Just to add a bit of a dig.

Each is worth one hell of a lot more than he is. So, by his standards, each is a hell of a lot smarter than he is.

Skepticism is never out of order.

Optimistically, I think both Gates and Musk would get a kick out saying, "Donald, no. You don't know what you are talking about."

Bill gates is just a really bad idea! What is he going to put him on and i hope to god it isn't vaccinations.
And musk is ok but hes into fleecing money from our government, telsa is a success but his space company is well interesting, space x is just a waste of money they need to build the space elevator before china to reduce cost of space exploration. However the hyperloop seems interesting.

This is a great idea in some aspects and might be a really bad idea in some others think google in charge of internet laws bad!

Ps if you dont know me I like trump not a hater just know the tech industry is filled with swamp creatures worse then some dems

I think it's less of a private sector controlling laws but more of a picking the brain of the the private business sector to see how we can run the governments infrastructure like a business.. I mean a lot of what the government does is business not politics after all. We sell and tax everything from guns to food to energy. Some departments of the government could benefit from some operating ideas from the private sector. Businesses like Microsoft profit every year. The US government goes further into debt.

We gotta run the business differently instead of just painting the building and changing the sign.

Not necessarily smarter. Opportunism was Bill's strength. He took the ideas of others and made them into...well you know the rest of the story.

I don't know how much hype is attached to this and how real, but it is a wonderful idea as long as Bill doesn't get too trigger happy with the hypodermics (know what I'm saying?).

These guys are the same old same old. Could be a positive to unfetter initiative and listen to the experts and strong arms of one's nation.

There are many positives about Trump's position. He has no shackles on him unlike most Presidents. He has room to manouevre because he is to some degree independent, to ad lib and meet more directly the present needs of your nation once it is truly established what those needs are.

I would really love to see the U.S spring forward with new inspiration and fresh momentum. I so hope that they do care about you and your nation, and are sincere.
