Joshua Geltzer co-wrote for the Hill on President Trump's mistreatment of civil servants within the federal government:

Civil servants are the glue that holds together our federal government. They are the experts who advise the president and his Cabinet on the pros and cons of particular policies. They are the continuity between administrations, even, or perhaps especially, administrations of different parties. And they are the voices of responsible implementation, ready to carry out whatever decisions the political leadership may reach but prepared to ensure that such implementation is lawful, sensible and effective.
