Wasn't that ban a big part of Pres Trump's "drain the swamp" promise when he entered the White House?

He's still got 2.5 hours of carnage to go.

I suppose that this rule can be re-invoked in a few hours?

Sure it could. I wouldn't bet the farm on it though.

Technically, Biden was promising to revoke it since Trump did it. Now he's free to re-do it... ....

Trump's executive order only applied to HIS appointees. There is nothing that Biden can do to interfere with the future earnings of Trump minions.

Note that Clinton signed the same Executive Order when he entered office, and he also revoked it on his way out the door. I believe Obama left his Executive Order in place.

Trump couldn't resist topping off the "swamp" he swore he'd rid America of, but only increased.

Of course he did. He's an idiot. No, not an idiot, an evil man. And I don't use that word "evil" lightly.
