President-Elect Donald Trump has had to fend off a swarm of criticism, both from bitter Hillary Clinton supporters and from warring factions within the Republican party.
According to reports, Trump’s transition staff and volunteers have dwindled down to 125 from around 250 previously. This is because Trump kept his promise to ban lobbyists.
Said an inside source, “All the lobbyists are gone. Lobbyists were the vast majority. Now, today you go in and you could [them] maybe on one hand.”
The source added, “Everybody that’s still there has signed a letter saying they’ve deregistered and are okay with the five-year ban. It’s not like any transition I’ve ever seen before.” What do you think of Trump’s bold, controversial move?
