(NationalSentinel) The Trump transition team has been busy since the November elections getting ready to take over the reins of power while coaching up the president-elect on his Executive Branch duties.
One of the most important presidential powers is the executive order, and it appears as though the transition team has also been busy focusing in on revoking many of the most damaging Obama-era policies and directives.
We reported yesterday that the president-elect is prepared to sign “four to five” executive orders almost immediately after he is inaugurated. Actually, it appears as though the Trump team may have as many as 200 EO’s for the new chief executive to sign. As reported by The Daily Caller:
President-elect Donald Trump will sign as many as 200 executive orders targeting a wide range of Obama administration policies, according to Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano.
Napolitano told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum Wednesday night that, based on his conversations with the president-elect, Trump could sign hundreds of regulations on his third full day in office. The judge did not say what policies were being targeted by the incoming administration.
Trump has hinted he would, for example, work to repeal “job killing” energy regulations his first day in office. Trump’s also said he’d repeal Obama-era executive orders on immigration, and he pledged to begin dismantling the Affordable Care Act.
Trump will need a bill from Congress to repeal the bulk of Obamacare, since it was passed via legislation in the first place.
Also, the GOP majority is preparing legislation that will make it easier to repeal last-minute “midnight” regulations from federal agencies, and a bill mandating costly regulations get congressional approval before becoming law.
