Of course the concept of 'integrity' is foreign to Trump's thinking.

Interesting that you really believe that science and engineering are not fundamental to the integrity of this country, and that the Administration doesn't need to take them into consideration. Can you explain your position on this?

Let's get rid of the ideas that we're the world police, the changers of regimes we don't like, and the builder of other nations instead.

They have nothing to do with the legitimate function of the GOVERNMENT. I bet most people think it was the "government" that got us to the moon and not "private industry" with a government contract.

Under Mr. Trump, the OSTP staff has dropped to 45 staffers, a substantial decline from President Obama's OSTP, which had a staff of 135 people. Another difference from the Obama years -- the majority of Mr. Trump's OSTP staffers do not have a background in science. The office hasn't formally been restructured, but a White House official said the team has "naturally" streamlined over the past few months with a narrowed focus on three main issues: technology, science, and national security.

Dolts Dolts Dolts!!!!!!!!! Sick bunch are the trumpees that voted for this scum.

Good.
That puts more money in the everyday Americans pockets. All these special committees and titles

Did you happen to notice how our President Trump listened to the everyday American people and put on hold the his reversal of President Obamas law on not allowing any elephant trophies.
The people spoke, President Trump listened and put it on hold, so he could review the law.
That is a real President of the American people.

The fact that a lot of people did not realize this office existed does not make it any less important. On the other hand it is EXTREMELY important for the President to be continuously aware of advances in science, as this is absolutely integral to the national defense. You can find dozens of examples - like the Manhattan project. It was a very close call for the USA that we managed to get the A-bomb developed and deployed before Germany. The only way that happened was through the physicists that advised Roosevelt and Truman.
