ECONOMY/TRUMP FAMILY/JARED KUSHNER: “President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, will lead a new White House office aimed at reforming the federal government through private-sector solutions.
On Monday [3-27-17], Trump will announce the establishment of a White House Office of American Innovation, which will be tasked with crafting ideas to reshape the federal bureaucracy to make it leaner and more effective, a White House official confirmed to CNN.
The office will look to build on Trump’s campaign promises to apply a business mentality to the federal government, which Trump has often decried as overly burdensome.
The announcement was first reported Sunday night by The Washington Post.
A White House spokesperson confirmed the new office would be announced on Monday, but declined to provide additional details about its mission.”
