Barack Obama has spent years using his authoritative pen to sign executive orders into law because Congress constantly prevented him from approving his particular set of rules. To date, Obama has singed 235 executive orders dealing with every issue from climate change to national security.
The interesting thing about executive orders is that they are built on faulty foundations. They are more theoretical than factual. An executive order can be ripped out from under itself just as quickly as it was signed.
On day one of his presidency, Donald Trump will be able to shred and dispose of any executive order that Obama signed into law, making them 100 percent invalid.
Here is a list of orders we can expect to see Trump handle immediately:
Climate change- The Paris Agreement, EPA regulations, Clean Power Plan
Trade- North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Negotiations
Health Care- Any order that supports Obamacare (a program that Congress has to repeal)
Immigration- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA)
National Security- Ensuring Lawful Interrogations, Iran Sanctions
You can also expect to see any miscellaneous regulations involving the economy, gun sales, and technology restrictions to be abolished.
Needless to say, the Obama administration, which was built on a faulty executive overreach foundation, will quickly come crashing down. Arrogantly, Obama will try and persuade Trump from eliminating his executive orders when they meet at the White House on Thursday.
Thank You Mr Holcomb and Townhall.
