TRUMP HAS HAD ENOUGH, Signs 5-YEAR BAN On …

on

President Donald Trump has taken another bold step in his plan to drain the swamp. Patriots everywhere are likely cheering Trump’s latest executive order.

A five-year lobbying ban has been officially signed by President Trump. No longer can an administration staffer leave his or her post and begin raking in the dough lobbying to help a group or business further its agenda, via Breitbart.

“So this is a five year lobbying ban, and this is all of the people — most of the people standing behind me will not be able to go to work,” President Trump said after signing the lobbying ban order.

The president expressed his problems with the current law on the practice. “It’s a two year ban now, and it’s got full of loopholes, and this is a five year ban. So you have one last chance to get out.”

Donald Trump vowed to enact this ban while on the campaign trail. Hillary Clinton never uttered any plan to thwart top level staffers from leaving their posts and then using their powerful contacts to make tons of money — her Wall Street donors would have hated it.

President Trump’s five-year lobbying ban also places a lifetime ban on administration staff going to work lobbying for a foreign entity. A collective groan was likely heard throughout Washington upon realizing wining and dining Trump officials would never curry them favor after the 45th president leaves office.

Trump just redefined what it means to be a public servant. Positions of such importance should never be used as a stepping stone to share privileged information with the highest bidder.  READ MORE

    Good for our President glad he is turning our country back to us and making the United States a place to be proud of and now to get our health care affordable for small businesses and personal health insurance. Also to see that our Vet’s are getting all the care they need without paying for it.

      Not really, my wife and I are both retired military and we get billed $2400.00 per year, so it’s not free.

        So Lee- is that $1,200 per year- for each of you? My husband and I paid about $12,000
        a year- and still never needed/used it. I’d rather have paid $1,200.

    Great news it’s time the elected officials serve the people and not sell their “yeah” vote to the highest bidder like Paul Ryan Speaker of the House. Hoorah, for President Trump!

    The ban is good. HOWEVER, Trump says he is going to clean the swamp. I’m sure Most individuals are behind him; However, in my opinion, the ONLY way this will happen is to have a law where Congressman can hold office for 6 years. They should not be allowed to run for that office again. Also, they should not get any benefits after leaving office.
