Republicans hated Executive Orders (EO) when they were used by President Obama. During the Obama presidency, EOs were used 276 times, in response to Republicans in Congress trying to obstruct his every move.
With every EO signed by Obama, Republicans would accuse Obama of overreach.
“He’s not a king, he’s not a dictator, he’s not allowed to do it himself.” – The-New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
“Barack Obama is a king, not a president.” – Fox News
“He may think he’s king, he may declare he’s a king, but that’s not what he is under the Constitution… He has rewritten the Constitution for himself as a part of his effort to fundamentally transform the United States of America.” – Then-Representative Michele Bachmann
And last but not least…
And now we have Pres Trump signing EOs like there is no tomorrow. His latest EOs to address much needed Coronavirus relief, may prove to be the biggest power grab of authority. Democrats in Congress and some Republicans have expressed their concern over this latest move by Trump. It remains to be seen if Dems will take Trump to court to prove the validity of his EOs.
Dems should take Trump to court and continue to work to get a deal done to extend Coronavirus relief. With every day that passes by Trump figures out a new way to ignore the Constitution.
there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
