Chris Christie: Trump Could Ask Congress to Make It Easier to Fire Public Workers

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump could ask Congress to pass new legislation that would allow public workers appointed by President Barack Obama to be fired with fewer limitations, according to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Christie is in charge of Trump’s transition team.

The Governor states that the campaign is drawing up names of government employees to be fired under a Trump presidency.

“As you know from his other career, Donald likes to fire people,” he said on Tuesday at the Republican National Convention, speaking at a closed door meeting with donors.

Trump’s campaign believes that Obama may appoint these employees to civil servants, which would increase their job security. The move would allow these Obama appointed individuals to maintain their positions even in a Republican administration.

Christie explained, “It’s called burrowing. You take them from the political appointee side into the civil service side in order to try to set up roadblocks for your successor.”

Christie also told the group that he asked Trump to immediately change civil service laws. According to Christie, firing civil servants is “time consuming” and “cumbersome.” A top priority for Trump would also be changing the Environmental Protection Agency leadership, according to Christie. Republicans have demonstrated concern over too much regulation from the agency in the past.
