The Trump administration and its strategy to seize control over independent agencies
Abstract: L’amministrazione Trump e la sua strategia per il controllo delle independent agencies – The Trump administration has tried since his official assignement a new strategy to seize control over independent agencies’ rulemaking processes and the guidance they issue, inside a more general and broader attempt to reform the entire public administration. Since his election, Donald Trump has introduced significant measures that undermine the independence of independent agencies, including through deregulation actions, undertaken through executive orders or presidential appointments that have increasingly diminished the technocratic expertise needed to implement public policy and could have potential far-reaching impacts on the federal administration. In this context, the article intends to examine the multiple forms in which Trump's presidential policy towards federal agencies has taken shape, especially with regard to the power of appointment and removal, and with reference to an increasingly incinsive control over agencies that should instead be, independent in relations with the executive.
