Trump lifts federal hiring freeze, but jobs will be filled slowly | MilitaryTimes

President Donald Trump will lift his 2-month-old hiring freeze on federal employees Wednesday, but it still could be some time before open posts at the Pentagon and Department of Veterans Affairs get filled.

In a news conference with reporters Tuesday, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said he expects many government positions left open during the hiring freeze will never be filled, as officials look for ways to streamline federal operations and cut waste.

“What you are talking about doing is restructuring Washington, D.C., and that is how you drain the swamp,” he said.
