This is just one of the bad things that would happen and another anti-government Republican may do it if it’s them instead of Trump. I am a retired federal employee (almost 38 years) and can tell you that non-political appointees (which is all but a few thousand) do their job regardless of who is president. Unlike Trump and his gang, civil servants respect the Hatch Act and don’t let politics affect their job. Trump has damaged IRS, the Secret Service, and the Post Office. I think he (or another Republican) would harm the whole government (and the services it provides to the public).
Biden undid the harm Trump caused at the end by eliminating Schedule F but it could come back in the future. There are a series of articles on Axios.
