The cleansing begins! Trump makes bold move to ban admin officials from lobbying for 5 years

“Say it with me, drain the swamp.”

Amid plenty of consternation from detractors, President-elect Donald Trump gave an early indication Tuesday that he has every intention to make good on his campaign pledge to shake up the status quo in Washington, D.C.

In a move to ensure people are not using government to enrich themselves, Trump began the process of purging lobbyists from his transition team and will ban potential appointees from lobbying for five years after leaving office, according to The Hill.

“All appointees will have to sign a document that signifies they either are not a registered lobbyist or have terminated any lobbying ties, as well as a pledge to not go back within five years,” The Hill reported.

The reaction on social media to the news shows the spirit that served to elect Trump remains alive and well, with his supporters expecting big things from the president-elect.
