Trump Has Big Plans For His White House Return

Former President Trump’s associates are carefully vetting the ideologies of thousands of potential supporters as part of an unprecedented effort to consolidate and expand his influence across all levels of the U.S. government in the event of a victory in 2024, according to officials familiar with the situation.

The significance of this initiative lies in the allocation of substantial resources—tens of millions of dollars—to establish a pre-vetted, pro-Trump force comprising up to 54,000 loyalists within the government. The goal is to dismantle the constraints imposed by previous administrations and redefine the scope of executive authority.

The vetting process for loyalists has already commenced, leveraging artificial intelligence technology provided by Oracle, a major tech corporation contracted for the project. Social media histories are being scrutinized in the selection process.

During Trump’s initial term in 2017, his administration included numerous conventional Republicans in key positions, which often led to limitations on his actions and authority. Despite Trump’s relatively minimal involvement in policy planning, there is a coordinated effort to fill government offices with loyalists prepared to push the boundaries of traditional norms.

In the event of a Trump victory in 2024, a cadre of Trump-centric loyalists is anticipated to assume roles in legal, judicial, defense, regulatory, and domestic policy positions. The strategy involves purging individuals deemed antagonistic to Trump’s assertive and authoritarian-leaning “Agenda 47.”

Contrary to expectations, the leaders spearheading these efforts are not prominent figures like Rudy Giuliani; rather, they are individuals with unconventional views on presidential power and traditional rule of law.

Behind the scenes, the government-in-waiting is allegedly orchestrated by the Heritage Foundation’s well-funded Project 2025, which has published a comprehensive 920-page policy book involving over 400 contributors. Described as a transition team set in motion years in advance, Heritage’s president, Kevin Roberts, emphasizes the scale of their operation, claiming it is “orders of magnitude” larger than any other assembled for a party out of power.

The Heritage Foundation’s initiative receives support from 80 partners, including Turning Point USA, led by Charlie Kirk; the Center for Renewing America, led by former Trump budget director Russ Vought; and American Moment, focused on recruiting young believers for junior positions.

Another group of former Trump officials, the America First Policy Institute led by Brooke Rollins, is laying the groundwork for a “Pathway to 2025” in preparation for what they envision as “the next America First administration.”

Although Trump insiders express enthusiasm for rebuilding the team with ideological purists, the reality is that many traditional Republicans either resigned in frustration or were dismissed during the first administration. Some former advisers are now cooperating with prosecutors or facing criminal charges.

The Trump campaign distances itself from external groups, asserting that “Agenda47” is the only official comprehensive plan for Trump’s potential return to the White House.

The most elaborate aspect of the pre-transition effort is a résumé-collection project, focusing more on political philosophy than on experience or education. Applicants are required to identify the person and book that most influenced their political philosophy, as well as a living public policy figure they greatly admire.

Heritage’s “Presidential Personnel Database” already contains over 4,000 entries. Social media histories will be closely examined, with those reluctant to test the limits of Trump’s power flagged and rejected. The recruitment effort aims to enlist 20,000 individuals for the next administration, serving as an initial installment for 4,000 presidential appointments and potential replacements for up to 50,000 federal workers described as “policy-adjacent.”

While technically this apparatus would be inherited by any Republican nominee, Heritage officials confirm briefing the campaigns of Trump, Ron DeSantis, and Nikki Haley. However, it is unmistakably a Trump-driven operation, evident from figures like Johnny McEntee and Stephen Miller being key players in the endeavor.

In the context of Trump’s intentions, it is crucial to focus on the substance rather than the theatrical language that often dominates social media and cable TV. Trump’s outlined priorities for a second term include a strong emphasis on the Justice Department, FBI, and intelligence community, which he believes conspired against him. Additionally, attention will be directed towards the Department of Homeland Security and the border, with plans for extensive detention camps and aggressive immigration enforcement.

A notable tool in Trump’s envisioned second term is the use of Schedule F personnel powers to eliminate employment protections for civil servants, aiming for a broad purge of professional staff across the federal government. Concerns are raised by officials close to the Pentagon regarding plans to review military promotions with a focus on core roles and responsibilities, potentially sidelining social engineering, climate change, critical race theory, and manufactured extremism.

In summary, the Trump-allied machine orchestrated by Project 2025 within the Heritage Foundation holds unparalleled influence over the potential composition of a future government. If elected, Trump intends to leverage this apparatus to implement unprecedented changes in government operations.
