Trump Revokes His Own Rule in Final Moments of Presidency

In his last hours as president, Trump revoked his own executive order which barred White House employees from lobbying the government for five years after they leave their positions. The Executive Order was issued last night by Trump as he wrapped the last of his official business within the White House.

President Trump first issued the Executive Order only eight days into this term on Jan. 28, 2017. The move was the first of many attempts to fulfill Trump’s campaign promise to “drain the swamp.”

Fox Business reports:

The measure, known as “Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Appointees,” barred political appointees from any lobbying related to their agency for five years and also imposed a lifetime ban on lobbying on behalf of a foreign government. Every Trump appointee was required to sign a pledge agreeing to the rules.

President-elect Joe Biden is reportedly planning to issue his own executive order addressing ethics standards at the White House shortly after he’s inaugurated on Wednesday.

His plan, first reported by The Washington Post, is to prohibit officials who leave the administration from lobbying the White House for Biden’s duration in office. Employees who leave toward the end of Biden’s tenure will be prohibited from lobbying the White House for at least two years. Another provision will prohibit incoming administration officials from accepting “golden parachute” payments from their former employers for taking a government job.

President Biden is expected to issue multiple Executive Orders within his first hours as president.

I don’t fully understand it myself Military Intelligence plays a cat and mouse game sometimes disinformation sometimes real and we have to differentiate the two. This is what I have NESARA (I hope that’s big enough to see, I had to enlarge it) comes on the 4th, but so do new elections. Something easy like ‘Bat-faced boy was found in Walmart parking lot.’ Would be great, we’d just ignore it.

How can Biden issue an “Executive Order” on ethical standards WHEN HE DOESN’T HAVE ANY?

Don’t know “who’s” running the White House, but it sure ain’t Joey B.He has ZERO “clue” what’s happening anywhere. He can’t hold a press conference since he can’t remember zip. When he begins to get “hostile”, that’s when “C’mon man”, comes out. SHORT FUSE & he holds the nuclear codes & the “RED HOTLINE”? God help us all.

Everyone sees that Joe Biden is not capable of being President. We see that has cognitive behavior etc. The Obama’s are behind this presidency and have been all along. Joe Biden is used as a scapegoat, very sad, we call this elder abuse. The Obama’s don’t care how degrading this is to the family, as long as they can benefit from it. Politics are pretty dirty, the Obama’s wanted to get back at Donald Trump since 2016 especially, expecting Clinton to win. Now they are bidding their time to put Kamala Harris as President.
KARMA will eventually get them……..
I, live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and we see all this going on,

Sad and pathetic.

I found it sad that our country has stooped so low that the highest office in the land was given to a “going senile” old person. It was pathetic when he was signing one of his(?) EO’s and could not explain what the document was actually about. By-the-way I can make that statement because, I have already been at his age (several years ago) and he would be a much bigger liar if he says he has not been affected.
