(Steve Watson) Biden has signed more than three times as many orders as the previous four Presidents COMBINED
by Steve Watson, January 26th, 2021
Joe Biden has signed a record thirty-three executive orders in just one week, a record for any President, and most of them directly reversing President Trump’s core policies.
Thus far, Biden has signed more than three times as many orders as the previous four Presidents COMBINED.
In their first weeks Trump signed four, Obama signed five, George W. Bush signed none, and Bill Clinton signed one.
Indeed, no other President has ever signed as many orders as Biden, according to The American Presidency Project at the University of California Santa Barbara.
So what are they? Biden doesn’t know, but Market Watch published a complete table.
Favourites include overturning Trump’s order to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census, ending Trump’s 1776 initiative, stopping construction of the border wall, ‘fortifying’ DACA, ending ‘harsh’ immigration enforcement, and “restoring U.S. global leadership”.
America last is back.
