John DeStefano is an inside the beltway GOP elitist who was appointed by Trump to be the Director of Presidential Personnel. Stefano’s role is to decide who will work in the Trump administration.
Never trust a Never Trumper!
Hundreds of Trump loyalists hold positions as Schedule C Federal Employees which are temporary and expire after 120 days. We are at the eleventh hour of these expiration’s and fewer than 15% of temporary appointees have been given permanent positions.
Via Cernovich Media:
Johnny DeStefano, head of personnel and policy for President Donald Trump, has blocked Trump supporters from the White House, twenty-three people with directly knowledge of hiring and personnel have reported to me.
Over 800 Trump supporters hold positions as Schedule C Federal Employees. These positions are temporary, and expire after 120 days.
Fewer than 15% of Trump’s temporary appointees (Schedule C) have been given permanent positions. Their terms are coming up, and they are being sent home.
One source told this reporter:
I was told that I have a permanent position, moved to that position, was given a new email address, but my paperwork says I am still on a 120 appointment that expires on the 20th. Half of the original Trump supporters here are in the same boat as me, the other half were told that they would not be re-appointed. So that 15% number (hopefully not, in my case) may be even lower.
Even pro-Trump interns are being blocked, as another source told me:
Hey Mike. I was a Trump field rep in [a swing state which Trump narrowly carried]. I wrote recommendations for several college kids for the WH internship.
I guess I should have written that they were never Trumpers as opposed to volunteers from before the primary.
No one from White House intern dept called me as a reference.
DeStefano defended his inaction by claiming it takes time to hire the best people.
Surely Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel would know something about how to hire the best people. Yet multiple sources confirm Thiel has been completely shut out by DeStefano.
Cernovich points out that DeStefano has brought in rabid ‘Never Trumpers’ like Brian Hook and Scott Garrett. The Daily Caller also reported on this:
Brian Hook, a Trump critic and former Bush administration official, is currently serving as the State Department’s director of policy planning, The Daily Caller has learned.
The State Department official also co-founded the John Hay Initiative, a neoconservative group that organized a letter of over 100 Republican foreign policy experts who would refuse to back Trump. Eliot Cohen, another co-founder of the John Hay Initiative, has been a strong critic of the Trump administration.
A State Department official who was a Trump political appointee told TheDC, “I’m so disappointed about all the neoconservatives trickling into the administration.”
Scott Garrett called Trump vile and said he should resign in disgrace:

TGP reported earlier that ‘Never Trumper’ establishment conservatives Bill Kristol and Ross Douthat have respectively gone public with their scheming to remove President Donald Trump from office.
Kristol wrote on Twitter Tuesday that his and his allies goal is to “dispose of Trump” and “Trumpism” but that it will take time, “Several of you have asked, What IS path forward? Well, we’re working on it. Disposing of Trump & overcoming Trumpism can’t be done in a day.”
WH Source, “Your story had all of the right people angry and shook up!”
