“Draining The Swamp”

Donald Trump released a great ethics reform plan for Washington D.C. last week which got minimal attention from the mainstream media outlets. This is the type of news that should be covered. In case you didn’t hear about it, here are his five-points he would institute to rid the Capitol of most of the lobbying corruption.


“It’s Time To Drain The Swamp In Washington, D.C. That’s Why I’m Proposing
A Package Of Ethics Reforms To Make Our Government Honest Once Again.”
– Donald J. Trump

First: I am going to re-institute a 5-year ban on all executive branch officials lobbying the government for 5 years after they leave government service. I am going to ask Congress to pass this ban into law so that it cannot be lifted by executive order.

Second: I am going to ask Congress to institute its own 5-year ban on lobbying by former members of Congress and their staffs.

Third: I am going to expand the definition of lobbyist so we close all the loopholes that former government officials use by labeling themselves consultants and advisors when we all know they are lobbyists.

Fourth: I am going to issue a lifetime ban against senior executive branch officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.

Fifth: I am going to ask Congress to pass a campaign finance reform that prevents registered foreign lobbyists from raising money in American elections.

Not only will we end our government corruption, but we will end the economic stagnation.
