With the revelations from the recent Wikileak’s Podesta emails and James O’Keefe’s undercover footage showing Democrat aligned agents provoking violence at Trump rallies, now seems like a good time for the presidential candidates to release a plan to eliminate corruption within our political system.
Donald Trump has done just that, as he has released a five-point to help stem the types of underhanded activities that seem to be running rampant within our government.
““It’s Time To Drain The Swamp In Washington” Trump states, which incidentally became a trending hashtag on Twitter of #DrainTheSwamp.
The public is still awaiting a plan from Hillary Clinton as to how her administration intends to clean up corruption in Washington D.C., but considering that all of the recent embarrassing leaks have revolved around the Democratic party I can imagine her plan could be summed up as, “Business as Usual”.
Donald Trump’s full statement is below:
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.
