2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren has promised to remove nearly all Trump political appointees day one if victorious in winning the Presidency.
In addition, Warren has promised to make half of her cabinet female appointees.
“Our government officials can best serve the American public when they reflect the diversity of the country itself,” Warren wrote in a new piece posted on Medium, “The federal government does a dismal job on diversity and inclusion.”
Per Yahoo, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren said on Tuesday that if elected to the White House she would ask for the resignations of all of President Donald Trump’s political appointees on her first day in office, including the 93 United States attorneys.
Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts who has made anti-corruption the central theme of her presidential bid, is locked in a tight race for the chance to take on Trump in the November 2020 election with less than two weeks to go before Iowa kicks off the party nominating contests.
Warren is in the top tier of 12 Democrats vying for the party’s nomination but trails former Vice President Joe Biden and fellow U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders in most national opinion polls.
Warren said on Tuesday she would ask for the resignation of all of Trump’s political appointees except those in “positions necessary to preserve continuity and protect national security during the transition period.”
“One year from today, the next president will begin her first full day of work. She will be inheriting a government in crisis,” Warren wrote on the website Medium.
