Trump won in 2016 because he was the outsider. He claimed he had never even slept in Washington DC. He wasn't a lawyer or a politician. Only he could clean up the swamp.
So he appointed billionaires, family, friends, Wall Streeters, many
lobbyists, Fox News talking heads, CEOs and soon to be felons.
In truth, no one really knows precisely what Trump meant when he said: "Drain the Swamp". Trump doesn't know either! If he does, he's never stated it publicly.
Here are the ethics and reforms Trump promised in 2016:
"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.
And Fifth: I am going to ask Congress to pass a campaign finance reform that prevents registered foreign lobbyists from raising money in American elections."
