Trump Considering Executive Actions on Lobbying Ban, Plans for ISIS - ABC News
Following up on his campaign pledge to "drain the swamp" in Washington, Trump also signed an action to institute a five-year lobbying ban for administration officials once they leave government, and put in place a lifetime ban on lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.

Smoke and mirrors.. he has former lobbyists on his transition team now. READ... it says after they leave government jobs.
The Trump lobbying purge that wasnít
The transition made a big show of sidelining lobbyists, but they found ways to stay involved anyway.

Indeed, Trump has pledged to ban all his administration officials from lobbying for five years after they leave government service. Obamaís rules are far less stringent: Former officials canít lobby their former agencies for two years.

But when it comes to the transition, Trumpís rules have been easier for lobbyists to thwart. Paul Miller, president of the National Institute for Lobbying & Ethics, a trade group, said he feels the regulations are mostly for show.

Seems to me all recent presidents have done the same thing re lobbying rules. Nothing new to see here.

In several cases, the blitz of activity caught some in Washington by surprise. Congressional leaders and officials with the agencies of jurisdiction received little to no warning on some of the actions from the White House, according to sources.
Yeah, they aren't used to anyone working very hard. Trump is a workhorse...they are in for a huge surprise if they think he's going to stop.
