As part of its ongoing effort to “drain the swamp” in Washington, the White House is seeking input from the American people as to which federal agencies they would like to see eliminated.

The question is part of a survey currently posted on the whitehouse.gov website which asks Americans for feedback on how the government can better serve the American people. The survey will run until June 12th.

“President Trump wants to hear your ideas and suggestions on how the government can be better organized to work for the American people,” reads part of the introductory text on the survey.

Other questions include which agencies should be reformed and other specific ideas respondents may have for reforming government.

“I’m here to ask you to help me fix it [federal government],” said Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney in a short introductory video posted with the survey. “President Trump calls it ‘draining the swamp,’ but what it really means is making the government more accountable to you, more effective, and more efficient, and we can’t do that without your help.”

The survey is being conducted as part of President Trump’s executive order to reorganize the executive branch.
