Trump: It’s Time To Drain The Swamp In Washington, D.C – Five-Point Plan For Ethics Reform
DONALD J. TRUMP’S FIVE-POINT PLAN FOR ETHICS REFORM
“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.

Trump’s Ethics Reform Proposal Wins Praise From NeverTrump Senator
In the wake of the Wikileaks scandal and the release of FBI interview notes suggesting a “quid pro quo” offer between the State Department and the FBI in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday released an outline of an ethics reform proposal.
The plan, according to the outline, is to “drain the swamp in Washington, D.C.” The five point plan even drew praise from noted #NeverTrump Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, who said Trump’s proposal was “making a serious ethics reform proposal here.”
The proposal includes a plan to “re-institute a 5-year ban on all executive branch officials lobbying the government for 5 years after they leave government service.” …Trump wants Congress to pass it into law so “it cannot be lifted by executive order.”
…Sasse, a vocal critic of Trump who says he will not vote for the GOP nominee, said of the proposal: “All five points have merit and are worthy of debate / consideration.”

How is it that Trump consistently has been proven right, consistently has plans and a platform of ideas that are important to the American people and have merit in the eyes of even the “Never Trump” people yet STILL has to wade through the morass of news media and the character assassination of left and right?
Simple — He is rocking a boat that has become so heavily ladened with fat, corrupt politicians that the rats are squealing. He is doing what no dyed-in-the-wool long-term politician or Republican candidate in this election could or would have done.
If for no other reason, Never Trump people need to give him respect for this.
HOWEVER, if he wins this presidency and loses to Democrats who are flipping seats and winning positions in congress THEN there will be a very difficult road ahead.
People in local, state, and federal elections need to be just as engaged. Communists, DNC, Democrats, and outside US sources are pouring outrageous sums of money, as is Hillary Clinton’s machine, into making sure that Democrats win heavy in all elections but in particular House and Senate. The fight does not end with the presidential election. We MUST stay vigilant in all elections from grassroots up.
Pelosi has vowed to retake the Speaker of the House position. The card-carrying Communist known as Pelosi should have been retired several years ago when it became obvious her brains were getting scrambled.
Fight takeover of our way of life and corruption on all levels not just for President. Help him help our country to get back on the road to recovery.
