Trump Revokes Lobbying Ban After Promising to ‘Drain the Swamp’

Donald Trump revoked his administration’s ethics pledge banning political appointees from lobbying their former colleagues in a late-night executive order issued in the final hours of his presidency, reports Bloomberg.

The move frees former administration officials to begin immediately lobbying federal agencies and employees.

At the start of his presidency, Trump, who campaigned on “draining the swamp” in Washington,  championed the restrictions as more stringent than previous administrations.

“This is a five-year lobbying ban,” Trump said when he signed the order. “It [replaces] a two-year ban now that is full of loopholes, and this is a five-year ban.”
