Donald Trump just set Washington on fire with his new ruling and lobbyists are running scared!
Lobbyists will be banned for five years after a President serves their term/s. This will prevent a multitude of adults from milking each others teets and gaining jobs out of friendship.
In order for American government to remain fresh and competitive, putting great ideas into action, we can’t let it get stale.
If we kept everything the same, in the direction we’re going, such as political correctness and other annoyingly weak examples, then we’re going to have a terrible country.
Keeping the doors rotating and instituting fresh candidates in positions of power keep things rolling in an energetic matter. It doesn’t mean there will be drastic changes every four to eight years, such as rookies leading the pack – but excited members of government hell bent on making a difference instead of living as a life long stagnant politician.
Washington Post – Donald Trump’s transition team on Wednesday announced that registered state and federal lobbyists will not be allowed to serve in the Trump administration, and people who leave the administration will have to wait five years before they can become lobbyists.
“It goes back to Trump’s goal to make sure people aren’t using government to enrich themselves,” transition spokesman Sean Spicer said on a call with reporters. “The key thing for this administration is going to be that people going out of government won’t be able to use that service to enrich themselves for a five-year period.”
Every person who joins the administration will be asked to sign a lobbying ban form that states they are not a registered lobbyist. If they are, they will have to provide evidence of their termination.
The policy comes after days of criticism over Trump’s inclusion of lobbyists on the transition team, despite his campaign pledge to keep special interests out of Washington.
Trump said he would do this and he’s doing it. This is what sticking to your word is all about. I don’t think he’ll be able to accomplish 100% of everything he said pre-election, because as we know – things could change at any moment and Trump can’t just say something is a “thing” or a law without going through the proper protocol.
Being President is a great responsibility and so far Donald Trump is handling it with ease.
He seems to be in this for the right reasons which is to change things up and ruffle some feathers.
The man doesn’t even want the $400,000 salary, which I might say, I would’ve taken!
Get inside and drain the swamp!
