A majority of federal workers disapprove of President Trump and seven in 10 think he's ruining the government's reputation, according to a new survey of bureaucrats.
In an apparent slap at the new administration, which has promised to slash federal jobs and demand greater worker accountability and productivity, 58 percent said they disapprove of the job Trump is doing.
Most lack enthusiasm for Trump's early efforts to reform the federal workforce," said the analysis of the 100 Days survey from the Government Business Council.
What's more, the survey of 1,200 federal workers said that 67 percent of federal workers believe that investigations into Trump's ties to Russia "somewhat impacts his ability to lead the country."
The survey is not expected to be well received inside the White House, and not just because of their disapproval of the boss. The survey also showed that federal workers do not support some of his top agenda items, such as cutting regulations, ending the focus on climate change and building a border wall.
And 62 percent oppose his appointment of family members to the White House staff.
But the worker 'diss of Trump won't be a surprise, especially since so many went to work for Uncle Sam during eight years of the Obama administration. The White House was suggested that those who don't want to help the administration with its agenda should quit.
The key findings from the survey release:
— 67 percent of respondents believe the investigation into Trump's ties to Russia at least somewhat impacts his ability to lead the country.
— 67 percent of respondents who work in the Washington D.C. and Baltimore metro areas agree with the statement: "President Trump's business relationships pose a conflict of interest with his presidential duties."
— 58 percent of respondents disapprove of the way President Trump is handling his job as president.
— 69 percent of respondents who work in the Washington D.C. and Baltimore metro areas believe that President Trump has had a negative impact on the federal government's reputation.
— 58 percent of respondents say President Trump's management priorities are unclear.
