Trump took steps today aimed at fighting terrorism and corruption. They come after yesterday's order temporarily banning immigrants from certain countries from traveling to the U.S. Today's actions:

Action #1: Implements a five year lobbying ban on administration officials. "This is something I've talked about a lot on the campaign trail... and now we're putting it into effect," said Trump.

Action #2: Calls for a reorganization of the National Security Council and the Homeland Security Council.

Action #3: Calls on military leaders to present a report to the president in 30 days that outlines a strategy for defeating ISIS. "This is the plan to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, in other words ISIS. I think it's going to be very successful."
