“We will pass critical reforms making every executive branch employee fireable by the president of the United States. The deep state must and will be brought to heel,” he said to the delight of his South Carolina crowd on Saturday.

The idea seems a sensible one from the standpoint of a business leader. However, making this goal a reality in Washington is an uphill battle.
The law would first have to be passed, but would also face the concern of both Republicans and Democrats dealing with massive firings each time a new party takes power in the White House.
Instead, Trump will likely use the talking point to fire up voters, though the logistics of making the idea happen are unlikely to succeed.
