Tester told reporters Friday he will roll out legislation next year to ban members of Congress and some executive branch officials from lobbying for five years after leaving office.
Tester said that too many former lawmakers "stroll through the revolving door to K Street."
"It's unacceptable and not what their constituents had in mind," he said.
Democrats initially praised Trump's campaign pledge to "drain the swamp" but argue his Cabinet picks are signaling he will not follow through on that promise.
"Instead of draining the swamp, he's bringing in more gators," Tester said.
Trump’s team recently announced they plan to bar political appointees from registering as lobbyists for five years after leaving his administration.
Tester's forthcoming legislation comes after Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) introduced similar legislation on Thursday.
