Executive Order Establishing the Presidents National Council for the American Worker ECONOMY & JOBS
President Donald J. Trump
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to provide a coordinated process for developing a national strategy to ensure that Americas students and workers have access to affordable, relevant, and innovative education and job training that will equip them to compete and win in the global economy, and for monitoring the implementation of that strategy, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Purpose. Our Nation is facing a skills crisis. There are currently more than 6.7 million unfilled jobs in the United States, and American workers, who are our countrys most valuable resource, need the skills training to fill them. At the same time, the economy is changing at a rapid pace because of the technology, automation, and artificial intelligence that is shaping many industries, from manufacturing to healthcare to retail. For too long, our countrys education and job training programs have prepared Americans for the economy of the past. The rapidly changing digital economy requires the United States to view education and training as encompassing more than a single period of time in a traditional classroom. We need to prepare Americans for the 21st century economy and the emerging industries of the future. We must foster an environment of lifelong learning and skills-based training, and cultivate a demand-driven approach to workforce development. My Administration will champion effective, results-driven education and training so that American students and workers can obtain the skills they need to succeed in the jobs of today and of the future.
Sec. 2. Policy. It shall be the policy of the executive branch to work with private employers, educational institutions, labor unions, other non-profit organizations, and State, territorial, tribal, and local governments to update and reshape our education and job training landscape so that it better meets the needs of American students, workers, and businesses.
Sec. 3. Establishment and Composition of the Presidents National Council for the American Worker. (a) There is hereby established the Presidents National Council for the American Worker (Council), co-chaired by the Secretary of Commerce, the Secretary of Labor, the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, and the Advisor to the President overseeing the Office of Economic Initiatives (Co-Chairs).
(b) In addition to the Co-Chairs, the Council shall include the following officials, or their designees:
(i) the Secretary of the Treasury;
(ii) the Secretary of Education;
(iii) the Secretary of Veterans Affairs;
(iv) the Director of the Office of Management and Budget;
(v) the Administrator of the Small Business Administration;
(vi) the Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy Coordination;
(vii) the Director of the National Economic Council;
(viii) the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers;
(ix) the Director of the National Science Foundation; and
(x) the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy.
Sec. 4. Additional Invitees. As appropriate and consistent with applicable law, the Co-Chairs may, from time to time, invite the heads of other executive departments and agencies (agencies), or other senior officials in the White House Office, to attend meetings of the Council.
It’s about the MONEY. Hidden away is $250,000, the grand prize in a Media contest.
Whoever comes up with, in print or on TV, the most insulting, insane, foolish, incorrect, outdated, beyond reason, criticism of President Trump will win the pile of cash at a well attended dinner celebration to be announced at a future date. Trouble is, I think it could be true.
Of course we focus on all the good he’s been doing.
This stuff sort of reeks of the planned economy crap that Hillary would have supported, however. We don’t need to government to tell people where the jobs of what type are.
The free market is more than capable of doing that. Rather than spread loans and grants to the trades, we should just be getting the feds out of the education business in total.
I was hoping someone would post a video of the entire thing. Ive seen a few clips here and there but I wanted to watch the entire thing.
Its exactly what this country needs
Hats off to Ivanka for this too... She could be the first woman President down the road... this is a nice start.
I love this guy. #MAGA!
Helping American workers?
Why, that’s so PATRIOTIC!
Every time a patriot wins, a liberal’s head explodes in anger and frustration.

Reading the order, I don’t think that’s the point.
Thank you. It is overwhelming how much this man loves the American people. That is not something that can be faked. He loves this country, and he loves her people and that shines forth in everything he has done.
I feel so sorry for the media and the Never Trumpers because they will never understand that love or what motivates a man like President Trump
Thanks. Excellent info.
I didn’t see anyone really report on this. No wonder the so many don’t like him. They don’t get to know him and what he’s actually doing
Check the white house YouTube channel. It had some great stuff since there is no news media anymore
Keep the faith.
Remember how bammy said he had a laser-like focus on jobs? He lied.
