Trump Wants 4.5 Million New Apprenticeships In Five Years

President Donald Trump will sign an executive order on Thursday that looks to expand apprenticeships and job-training programs by giving more freedom to third-party companies and schools, according to two senior White House officials.

President Donald Trump acted Thursday to demolish a bureaucratic infrastructure that he said needed to be removed to allow America’s companies to create apprenticeships that will provide jobs for millions.

To do so, he signed an executive order that will more than double the amount of money delegated to apprenticeship programs from $90 million to almost $200 million annually.

Trump also vowed to increase federal grants to support companies that launch apprenticeship programs in fields such as information technology, as well as more traditional areas like the construction trades.

He said the money to support these apprenticeships would come from under-performing job training programs.

“The President will be calling on businesses across the country to embrace apprenticeships and we do not expect that call to go unanswered,” one official said.

Another official said both the President and Ivanka Trump, who is said to have been intimately involved in this executive order, will “use the bully pulpit of the White House … to maintain a focus on this issue.”

Trump wants to create 5 million new apprenticeships over the next five years, which would be almost 10 times the total that exist now.

But the money he has appropriated to apprenticeships is roughly the same as it was under Obama. The budget for fiscal 2016 appropriated $90 million for apprenticeships; that number is set to increase only to $95 million as part of Congress’ omnibus budget for 2017.

  1. President Trump should come to London: How can the most powerful man on earth, listen to the delusional jibes of a very few ultra-left wing scum bags…In particular the London Mullah sadiq khan.
    Here’s a message from me to Khan. the self styled London Mullah.
    khan, you have developed a knack of deceiving the gullible left-wing scumbags who populate the slimier quarters of politics, led by the vile traitor Corbyn.
    Pinnochio; dear boy, savour the feel of that name, because it fits you like a glove.
    Let’s hope that long fat lying nose of yours never actually comes into contact with a boxing glove, and not the imaginary one you keep yapping on about;
    The shock would floor you.
    Now please go away and do something within your capabilities, such as cleaning toilets, being a ‘condy’s wallah’ or conducting a bus!
    Oh yeah, please take the -beyond disgusting-Liquat Ali tribe and their slavering scumbag families and relatives of E17 with you, never before has a bigger bunch of lying, nepotist shi*s ever escaped from their stys to rampage so blatantly over the tax-paying residents of that borough.
    (Other than the paedophile muslims of Rotherham of course);
    I pray daily that you and your loathesome friends and relatives, spontaneously combust;that you do it soon, and that I and the thousands of other Londoners who share the same wish,are standing there to watch it happen!
