The Heritage Foundation is working hard to ensure conservative policies are implemented after Donald Trump takes office next Friday.

Several dozen Heritage staff are now working directly with the transition team. Several are directly involved on landing teams, who go into government departments and agencies to pave the way for the new administration. Others, including Heritage Founder Ed Feulner, are heading up teams developing the administration’s policies.

Heritage staff also plan to take their conservative ideas directly into the Trump administration. Heritage budget expert Paul Winfree has been named as Trump’s Director of Budget Policy and Deputy Director of the Domestic Policy Council.

Not only that, our Mandate for Leadership plan has circulated widely throughout the transition. Mandate contains a comprehensive series of recommendations for the new administration to enact immediately once in office.

We will continue to update you on the impact you’re having through your support for Heritage.

What would you like to see Donald Trump’s administration accomplish in the first 100 days of office?

President-elect Donald Trump credited Heritage with helping him compile his list of potential nominees to the Supreme Court.

Heritage President Jim DeMint was “very much involved in this group” that helped him identify possible nominees, Trump said. “He’s a fantastic guy,” Trump added.

Last March, Heritage legal scholar John Malcolm identified eight highly qualified candidates for the United States Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia.

Six of these eight candidates were also on Donald Trump’s list. All six demonstrate a principled understanding of the Constitution and the role of the judiciary.

Who would you like to see as our next Supreme Court Justice?

On Tuesday, Heritage expert David Azerrad went on the O’Reilly Factor to explain President Obama’s left-wing legacy:

Heritage continues to stay committed to pushing the conservative message across numerous media channels.

What do you believe President Obama’s biggest legacy will be?


Heritage Foundation Trustee and conservative movement leader Kay Coles James has stepped up to serve on Donald Trump’s transition team to ensure conservative principles are pushed forward.

James, a Heritage Trustee since 2005, has been leading the transition efforts in the Office of Personnel Management as the co-chair of the Management and Budget team.

James previously served as director of the Office of Personnel Management under president George W. Bush and as Virginia’s secretary of health and human resources.

We are excited about this opportunity for James and thankful for her willingness to take on this immense task.  It’s because of conservative leaders like her that we have hope for a brighter tomorrow.

President-elect Donald Trump has appointed Heritage budget expert Paul Winfree to serve as his Director of Budget Policy and Deputy Director of the Domestic Policy Council.

“Paul’s clear-eyed expertise in economic analysis and budgeting, his knowledge of how Capitol Hill works, and his commitment to limited government, economic freedom and opportunity for all Americans make him an ideal selection,” Heritage President Jim DeMint said.

Winfree, who heads Heritage’s Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies as the Richard F. Aster Fellow, has been a voice for conservative budget policy for many years. We are excited to see the impact he makes in this new administration.
