Trump orders joint chiefs to draft ISIS strategy, restructuring of security council

US President Donald Trump ban excludes Muslim countries where he does business Trump signs executive orders on lobbying, ISIS and National Security Council

"Most of the people standing behind me will not be able to go to work", Trump joked to aides as he signed the document, noting that the five-year ban will replace the two-year ban put in place by the Obama administration.

"I think it's going to be very successful", Trump said during the signing ceremony. President Bush signed a presidential memo about the standards of ethical conduct, including no conflicts of interest, no solicitations of gifts and a reminder of laws that say senior government employees can't immediately lobby the agencies they worked for.

Trump's move to reorganize the National Security Council could also have implications for how he receives and processes intelligence.

On his executive order making good on that pledge, Trump said his appointees would agree to refrain from lobbying their own agency for five years after leaving, and would not lobby any government appointee for two years.

One of the toughest aspects of Trump's order is the lifetime ban on former political appointees registering to represent a foreign government, individual or entity funded by a sovereign foreign government.

"Trump 100% photoshopped his hand bigger for this picture hanging in the white house, which is the most embarassing thing I've ever seen", Schwartz wrote. The order says they are "solely enforceable" by the US government "by any legally available means", including debarment proceeding within any affected executive branch agency, or civil court proceedings.

Thoughts from the ATL Airport Protest
I have been in contact with Attorney General Doug Chin regarding several orders issued by the federal courts in the last 24 hours. But Sunday morning, the American Civil Liberties Union reported their team of lawyers "received assurance from the U.S.

The rearrangement of the National Security Council is meant to make it more responsive to digital threats.

Presidents Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama all took executive action their first week in office to send a signal to the American public about their commitment to ethics.

Mr Trump signed a flurry of executive actions into effect in his first full week in office. "We're going to have a very, very strict ban, and we're going to have extreme vetting, and we should have had this in this country for many years". While Trump's time period is longer, his ban's focus on "lobbying activities" may narrow its scope in ways that permit abuse, critics said.

White House staff members didn't respond to requests for comment Sunday.

Also Friday, Trump signed a presidential memorandum directed at the new secretary of defense and the Office of Budget Management, outlining their responsibilities for evaluating the nation's security policies. Whereas the previous executive order restricted appointees from unauthorized communications with employees of the executive agency in which they served for two years following the end of their employment, the new order only requires that officials comply with the restrictions found in 18 U.S.C. 207 (c), which under statute, extend for only one year.
