United States president Donald Trump signed 18 executive orders and memos in his first 12 days in office, for an average of 1.5 executive actions per day. While that may seem like an unprecedented bombardment of policy, the number of actions signed by Trump is actually one short of his predecessor. In his first 12 days in office in 2009, Barack Obama signed 19 executive actions.

Also note that the MSM did not make an issue about the EOs when Obama was churning them out and now they are hysterical when Trump is issuing them.
The idea is NOT to see who signs the most Executive Orders. In fact I want to see the practice reined in substantially. The point is that Trump is busy doing what he said he’d do...undo obama’s tyrannical rule by executive fiat.
Well, Barack Hussein was black. That is the difference.
After the dust settles, I want to see the ones that should be law, actually become law. Otherwise the purpose of Trump’s EOs can be easily reversed.... AND it wil keep the libs at bay accusing Trump of governing by EO.
time to repeal Obama’s EO 13505. It funds embryonic stem cell research.
Seems like a no-brainer for Trump to unseal the damn things and find out about the bastard.
The big difference is that Trump is executing the will of the American people. After landslide electoral college victory he has every right to do so.
Obama was enacting the wishes of his puppet masters
Quartz is reduced to keeping score of a game that nobody gives a damn about
“Otherwise the purpose of Trumps EOs can be easily reversed”
I think many of Obama’s EO’s were unlawful...Trump is simply undoing them, and re-aligning policy with the law.
I agree, congress should be following behind, and passing laws to reinforce the orders...but there’s no guarantee the next Rat president won’t start penning illegal EO’s again...unless congress takes a stand.
I agree with you.
If that were possible, I’d love to see it happen. I want to know if he got admitted to Columbia as a foreign student.
Twelve days in the Trump Presidency, and our real President has already accomplished a lot. Imagine what he will do in his first 100 days (8 times as long, plus with his Cabinet in place).
