President Donald Trump’s signature on an executive order normally produces a predictable response. Celebrities, activists and sign-wielding students take to the streets, holding rallies and disturbing public order.

Shockingly, the president just signed an uncontroversial executive order that enjoys unanimous support and bipartisan approval.

Continuing to promote hard work and private industry, Trump has signed an executive order that narrows the skills gap for U.S. workers by promoting job training and apprenticeship programs. The president signed the order surrounded by supportive governors as well as workers who are currently enrolled in apprenticeship programs.

The Apprentice

The Secretary of Labor will now work with private businesses and entrepreneurs to develop apprenticeship programs that will help respond to America’s unfilled job market. The order also establishes a “business leaders task force” that will evaluate and streamline the dozens of job training programs already in place.

Traditional high school and college education has been incapable of preparing young workers for the highly technical jobs available in the labor market. Millions of these positions go unoccupied every year as a result of a lack of skilled labor.

The president explained how businesses would now have the support of the federal government to train and educate their own workers. He told reporters as much:

We’re empowering these companies, these unions, industry groups and federal agencies to go out and create new apprenticeships.

Undeniable growth

Trump’s regular army of detractors are silent in the wake of an executive order that promises to inject energy into an already prosperous economy. The president’s efforts to scrap regulations that only impede economic growth and expansion have so far produced promising results.

Expansive tax-cutting reforms have begun to reverse the “anemic” economic expansion experienced under the Barack Obama administration. The Dow Jones Industrial reached 21,000 within just the first month of Trump’s leadership just from the anticipation of his policies, and standards of living are improving for all Americans.

Trump cited this growth after signing the executive order to create job training programs, saying:

We have regulations on top of regulations and in history, nobody has gotten rid of so many regulations as the Trump administration, and that’s one of the reasons you see all the jobs and companies kicking in.

In a contentious political environment, the moments are rare that the president is able to exercise his executive authority without allegations of bigotry or abuse. Faced with overwhelming evidence of success for a healthy economy, Trump’s usual cast of critics are forced to return to their customary conspiratorial theories.
