Looks like he really is going to drain the swamp!

Anyone who is appointed to Donald Trump’s administration will be banned from becoming a paid lobbyist for five years after leaving the White House, his transition office announced Wednesday night.

Trump aide Sean Spicer announced the lobbying ban on a hastily arranged conference call with reporters, the Trump team’s first since last week’s election. All appointees will be required to sign a form agreeing to abide by the ban before starting work.

Throughout the campaign, the president-elect  vowed to “drain the swamp” of Washington, partly by decreasing the role of lobbyists and “special interests” in policymaking. Spicer said this is the first step toward that goal.
