Heritage Foundation, a conservative organization based in Washington, is leading an initiative to assemble a large number of carefully screened individuals for potential positions within a future Trump administration.

Their main objective would be to systematically dismantle the existing bureaucracy from the very beginning.

Recently, Axios released information outlining the specific procedures used during the screening process, indicating that it is designed to create a large group of unquestioning supporters of former President Donald Trump.

Project 2025, an endeavor by Heritage, has a substantial budget exceeding $20 million. It aims to aid Trump in the potential transformation of the federal government rapidly after the 2024 election victory.

In his previous term, Trump faced obstacles in implementing policies and misusing power as he either neglected to appoint crucial bureaucratic roles or encountered opposition from his appointees. However, this time, Trump’s supporters are determined to drastically reduce the influence of the current federal bureaucracy and substitute it with unquestioning followers.

During his first term, Trump received assistance from Heritage by employing staff members. Johnny McEntee, who previously held the position of director at the White House Presidential Personnel Office under Trump, now serves as a senior adviser for the project.

The president of Heritage stated that this project is significantly larger in scale compared to any other project undertaken by a party that is not in power. If Trump were to be reelected, it would have the potential to transform the functioning of the federal government significantly.

Project 2025 has decided to use forceful methods — represented by hammers — instead of delicate ones, symbolized by scalpels, in order to secure loyalty.

As part of the evaluation process, the social media activities of potential employees are closely monitored. The exact details of how artificial intelligence is used to screen candidates are not readily available. However, media reports indicate that accounts are carefully scrutinized, and applicants who express concerns about testing Trump’s authority will be identified and rejected.

It is also possible that expressing support for Trump could positively influence the screening process through algorithmic intervention.
