President Donald Trump Is Reversing Credential Inflation in the Federal Workforce

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order directing federal agencies to fill job vacancies based on merit, rather than require a minimum level of education for candidates seeking open positions,” Preston Cooper reports for Forbes.
 
“Credential inflation shuts out experienced, qualified job candidates who are perfectly capable of filling certain roles simply because they lack the right piece of paper . . . Most perniciously, it convinces young job seekers that they need a bachelor’s degree or even a graduate degree to succeed.”

Lamar Alexander says Millions Who Admire President Donald Trump Would Follow His Lead If He Wore a Mask When Appropriate

 

U.S. SenateMaryville, TN – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today told Manu Raju on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that “millions of Americans who admire President Donald Trump would follow his lead if he wore a mask when it’s appropriate.” Senator Alexander, who is chairman of the Senate health committee, said that “It also would help to get rid of this political debate that if you’re for President Trump, you don’t wear a mask, and if you’re against President Donald Trump, you do wear a mask.”

“Most of the time he’s with people who have been tested, he’s been tested,” Alexander continued, “but there are times when he could wear a mask or the vice president could wear a mask. I think it would be a sign of strength if he would from time to time wear a mask and remind everyone it’s a good way [to slow the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus].”
