Trump’s Exciting Plans for Executive Orders His First Few Days in Office

Sean Spicer told Politico that President Donald Trump might begin work on executive orders as early as Friday afternoon. Spicer said the first orders he will issue rescinding Barack Obama’s orders are still up in the air.

EOs That Will Make the Base Ecstatic

“I’m going to have to continue to update you on that,” Spicer told a reporter who asked what Trump’s first orders as president might be. “The president-elect is continuing to get briefed on some of the orders that he wants to do and the sequencing thereof.”

“He is committed to not just Day 1, but Day 2, Day 3 of enacting an agenda of real change, and I think that you’re going to see that in the days and weeks to come,” Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said on Thursday, telling reporters to expect activity on Friday, during the weekend and early next week.

The orders will mirror pledges made on the campaign trail to include immigration curbs and job creation, particularly in the manufacturing sector, Spicer said.

Trump’s advisers vetted more than 200 potential executive orders for him to consider signing, including healthcare, climate policy, immigration, energy and others.

All of these issues will bring Barack Obama back into the fray.

Trump also is expected to impose a federal hiring freeze, reverse some environmental protections and take steps to delay implementation of a Labor Department rule slated to take effect in April that would hamstring brokers.

Trump is expected to sign an executive order in his first few days to direct the building of a wall on the southern border with Mexico, one of several immigration-related steps his advisers have recommended.

That includes rescinding Obama’s order that allowed more than 700,000 people brought into the United States illegally as children to stay in the country on a two-year authorization to work and attend college, according to several people close to the presidential transition team.

Obama Will Be Baaack

It is unlikely Trump’s order will result in an immediate round-up of these immigrants, sources told Reuters. Rather, he is expected to let the authorizations expire.

Obama said this would be one of the issues that would bring him out to weigh in on “unfairly targeting” immigrants.

And you thought he was going I’ll bet!

We’re Getting a Wall, Refugees Will Meet Requirements

Trump also is expected to announce more specific plans to build the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and actions to limit the entry of asylum seekers from Latin America.

Advisors to Trump expect him to put restrictions on people entering the United States from certain countries until a system for “extreme vetting” for Islamic extremists can be set up.

During his campaign for the presidency, Trump had proposed banning non-American Muslims from entering the United States but his executive order regarding immigration is said to be based on nationality rather than religion.

Another proposed executive order would require all cabinet departments to disclose current work being done in connection with Obama’s initiatives to curb carbon emissions to combat climate change and halt the work until further directed.

Trump is expected to extend prohibitions on future lobbying imposed on members of his transition team in his first days in office. He is going to drain the swamp.
