Here are the 3 Trump executive orders you missed during the immigration ban protests


President Trump's immigration ban drew headlines and mass protests. But he did more this weekend than just watch that unfold. Here are the highlights of three more executive orders he signed Saturday. 

The ISIS plan

Trump signed an order demanding a plan to defeat ISIS be delivered to his desk within 30 days. 

The plan should include a "comprehensive strategy" and "new coalition partners," CNN reports. It would also recommend changes to the rules of engagement and restrictions regarding the use of force.

I think it's going to be very successful. That's big stuff.

Trump also restructured the National Security Council. It's a Cabinet-level group of leaders that deals with issues of national security. It now includes Trump advisor and former Breitbart News owner Stephen Bannon. The new structure also limits the role of the director of national intelligence and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, USA Today reports. Those leaders will only attend when they are needed, while Bannon will attend all meetings.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. called the move "stone-cold crazy."

You have one last chance to get out.

Lobbying ban

Trump also revised a Obama-era rule banning administration officials from becoming lobbyists. Obama's ban lasted two years, while Trump's lasts five, but only applies to lobbying the agency a person worked for.
