AMERICA FIRST = Hire Americans first.

President Trump on Monday signed an executive order banning federal agencies – with particular attention on the technology sector – from firing U.S. citizens or green card holders only to replace them with foreigners.

The order, which the White House is calling the Executive Order on Hiring American, challenges federal contractors’ use of H-1B visas to bring in temporary foreign labor for high-skilled jobs rather than relying on American workers

"This Executive Order follows his Buy American, Hire American Executive Order from April 2017 and takes further action to prevent Americans from being displaced by foreign workers," the White House said in a statement released Monday. "Under President Trump’s leadership, the firing of hardworking Americans in the pursuit of cheap foreign labor will not be tolerated." 

Trump's action was in part to prevent the outsourcing of jobs at the Tennessee Valley Authority, the federally owned corporation created by congressional charter in 1933 to provide electricity, economic development and other essentially services to the region. 

At the White House signing ceremony Monday, Trump POTUS says he’s pushing for the removal of authority CEO Jeff Lyash and called on its board to make Lyash "does not receive a lavish compensation package upon his departure too.”

”He gets $8 million a year so that was just a succession of deep swamp things happening and it's a disgrace,” Trump said. “So let this serve as a warning to any federally appointed board. If you betray American workers, then you will hear two simple words .. You're fired."
