President Trump Issues Three Additional Executive Actions: Lobbying Ban, Restructure of NSC, Joint Chiefs ISIS Strategy…

President Donald Trump initiates three more campaign promises today via executive action:

♦  A five year ban on lobbying for all White House officials. An order banning administration officials from ever lobbying the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government and imposing a separate five-year ban on other lobbying.

♦  An order to begin restructuring the White House National Security Council. Aides said the changes would help the council better adapt to cyber, digital, terrorist and other modern-day threats.

♦  A request for the Department of Defense, via the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to deliver a preliminary strategy to defeat ISIS within 30 days to the President.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump acted Saturday to fulfill a key portion of his pledge to “drain the swamp” in Washington, banning administration officials from ever lobbying the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government and imposing a separate five-year ban on other lobbying.

Trump has said individuals who want to aid him in his quest to “Make America Great Again” should focus on the jobs they will be doing to help the American people, and not thinking about the future income they could rake in by peddling their influence after serving in government.  (read more)

    I never get tired of seeing our president wanting to make sure he has true transparency in the white house by holding up those executive orders for the lying MSM to take notice of.

    This is still too much winning but I’m not tired of it yet. 😀

      Trump is just hitting these executive actions like a machine gun… 1,2,3,4,5 reload. This is a dizzying pace in my opinion and I absolutely LOVE it. Whatever the libs scream the loudest about that is next on the agenda ; )

      Why would our president NOT put his people FIRST, as any other country would/should do?

      I hear the morons repeating that DJT has no experience, blah, blah….NONE of the presidents have experience at first because none of them have ever been president. This guy is a dynamo–makes the squatter who just left look like a lump of poop. He has looked presidential since the very beginning–actually before he was even sworn in; a class act.

      The people who SHOULD be running for president should be common, ordinary people who have brains, integrity, honesty and a love for our country and its Constitution. A recognition that they answer to God and that they are NOT God is a great thing as well.

    Cleaning up the voter rolls , exposing voter fraud (national voter ID to come) — no more 35 yr career leeches in congress or “selected” presidents.
    NSC cleaned out and will install state of the art cyber security (no more open back door channels for the globalists to hide passing NWO info and coordination)

    this is MAGA but it is also “Keep America Great” ..Trump- always 100 steps ahead on the 3D chess board!

    Question asked as a lawyer: can the prez limit future post-gov’t activities of employees? Isn’t that a legislative function? And how far can the gov’t, whether prez or Congress, restrict post-gov’t activities of former gov’t employees? There is a First Amendment question. I don’t know which people are covered by the Executive Order and how it is worded and legal basis on which it is based

    Re stop of immigration from the 7 Muslim countries. I think this has been unneccessarily clumsily done. Those already on an airplane in flight shouldn’t be held, assuming they had proper paperwork/visas and we have no adverse info about them. Given how many potential terrorists are already here, it seems (even to me who abhors Islam) a very awkward and clumsy action.

    I post this comment as a Trump supporter who likes most of what Trump has done this week.

        “A very awkward and clumsy action” Seriously?!! Ok, see how this stacks up… ” if you like your plan you can keep your plan, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”
        And what about the thousands of people in mid treatment when this outrage became law with no participation from the “loyal” opposition?
        How would you compare them to people having to return to their country of origin? Just a little inconvenient and oh let’s see….awkward…clumsy.

      I look at this being similar to when an employer makes it a requirement for new employees to sign “no compete” agreements upon hiring on. You can’t leave the company and join the competition until an agreed upon length of time expires first. You see this happen in your local TV market when newsperson leaves channel A to go to channel B. Cannot go directly over for one or two years, so he or she leaves that market to work elsewhere, then returns to market after agreement expires at channel B. In this case, employer is executive branch, and competition is foreign govt.

    • The legal answer is that, yes he can limit his employees…..He hires them, not the legislative branch……One can even do this in the business world…..In fact, non-compete contracts and so forth are very common…..If one does not want to sign the contract, then they do not have to work there.

      He issued the executive order that this is to happen…….Now his employees will make it happen via contracts……
