Focus on Innovation


President Trump is set to unveil on Monday a new White House agency called the “Office of American Innovation,” headed by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, which will hold extensive powers to overhaul federal procedures and potentially privatize certain government responsibilities by culling ideas from the business community, according to a report in The Washington Post.

The new office headed by Kushner will report directly to his father-in-law and will be staffed by members of the business community and advised by the heads of several large technology and manufacturing companies, including Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook, Elon Musk from Tesla and SpaceX, Marc Benioff from Salesforce, Bill Gates, the former chief executive of Microsoft and Ginni Rometty, the chief executive of IBM.
