Trump plans new office to fix government with business ideas, and it's already working with Tim Cook and Elon Musk

President Donald Trump is to appoint son-in-law Jared Kushnerto head a new White House team to revamp the federal bureaucracy by employing strategies used in business, according to The Washington Post.

The White House Office of American Innovation, to be announced Monday, will operate as a "SWAT team of strategic consultants" expected to "float above the daily political grind," the report says.

Led by Kushner, a former real estate and media executive and a senior advisor to Trump, the innovation office is working with major business executives, including Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Salesforce Chief Executive Marc Benioff and Tesla founder Elon Musk.

"We should have excellence in government. The government should be run like a great American company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens," Kushner told the Post on Sunday.
