On numerous occasions our very ‘Loud-and Proud’ President has said that “Everything will change in the first 100 days.” But how much has he actually done? Many of you heard about his travel ban which was overruled by a Washington state judge (which Trump has vowed to overturn). But there are several others that you may not have heard about. First let’s talk about the different kinds of executive actions.
Executive Orders: You have all, most likely, heard of executive orders, but are you aware of their functions and powers? EOs are assigned numbers and published in the federal register, like the laws passed by Congress, and usually direct members of the executive branch to follow a new policy or directive. However they can also carry much greater weight than just direction of federal staff, such as Trump’s travel ban…
Presidential Memoranda: This is probably the least known executive power. Memorandum do not have as much power as an EO and they do not have to be registered either. PMs usually delegate tasks that Congress has already assigned the president to members of the executive branch. But they can also be new assignments for the cabinet members created by the president himself.
Proclamations: These are usually just to honor the observance of a major occurrence in America. Or to honor an individual or invention. However some proclamations, such as Abraham Lincoln Emancipation Proclamation, have carried much more significance
Now that you know the things our president can do let’s see what our new president has done.
This order essentially provides government sanctioned protection on American Business. And requires the secretary of the treasury to report on the actions taken to grant greater resources and freedom to american businesses big and small.

Yay less government spending! Less spending is always a good thing and this order set 2017’s regulation budget to 0$ except when involving national security and the military. Both of which need some funding right about now. This order also states that for every order signed two must be repealed, i.e. smaller government. You can read the entire order by clicking the title.
This action was directed to the secretary of labor and delegates the task of reviewing Obama’s Fiduciary duty rule to determine whether a repeal is necessary or advisable. You can read the full delegation by clicking the link.
This order puts heavy regulations on lobbying and requires all cabinet members to sign this ethics commitment which is enforceable under law. So Trump is basically cleaning out Obama’s legacy of stretching executive powers to places the shouldn’t be. Click the link to read more.
This proclamation is to remember the victims of heart disease and other cardiovascular conditions. Read more a whitehouse.gov.
This order puts a 100 day ban on all visas and immigration from several terrorist rich countries as well as an indefinite ban on travelers from syria. You have all probably heard of the doofus who overruled this order, but as Commander-in-Chief, it is expected that President Trump will declare this a threat on National Security and therefore an act of ‘war’. This would be a declaration that no judge could overrule.
This one makes us very happy. It’s happening people! He is really building the wall! And our president has also directed the secretary of homeland security (who is overseeing the operation) to hire 5,000 more border patrol agents. He has also set in place very specific immigration policies, deportation policies, and apprehending policies that will make any alien think twice.
This one’s really happening too! Trump has officially charged our National Security related positions of government to defeat ISIS once and for all. He has also instructed them to contact countries who are also fighting off the terrorist group to try and form an alliance with the purpose of demolishing the Islamic State.
This order’s intention is to charge the executive branch to remove aliens from among us. The order states that this Illegals are against our common interest and the so called ‘Sanctuary Cities’ are against Federal law. Section 2c of the order reads; (it is the policy of the Executive branch to:) Ensure that jurisdictions that fail to comply with applicable Federal law do not receive Federal funds, except as mandated by law. This order will secure our safety against foreign Terrorists and thugs even more.
Trump is once again rebuilding what Obama destroyed. He has commissioned our Secretary of Defense to conduct a review of our armed forces and report back to the cabinet what he found, He and our President will then form a plan to make our Armed Forces the strongest in the world by 2019.
Presidential Memorandum Streamlining Permitting and Reducing Regulatory Burdens for Domestic Manufacturing
This delegates the task of reviewing Federal regulation stress on american business to the secretary of commerce who will then report to the president and they will discuss what can be done to remove the government from other people’s businesses as much as possible.
Executive Order Minimizing the Economic Burden of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Pending Repeal
Here that? They’re gonna repeal Obama care. This will create a much healthier market and force people to get off their sofas and earn some money. Our president is on a roll if he keeps making america great again at this rate he’ll be able to undo 5 times the amount of damage Obama did.
Presidential Memorandum Regarding Withdrawal of the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Negotiations and Agreement
Yet another promise of Trump’s campaign has been followed through on. He has officially withdrawn the U.S. from the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership). The TPP is a partnership between several Asia-Pacific countries to encourage trade. But due to the difference in currency value and poor organization, we’ve been losing jobs and money to this machine for too long. You can read the entire Memorandum by clicking the link.
Presidential Executive Order on Preventing Violence Against Federal, State, Tribal, and Local Law Enforcement Officers
President Trump ic cracking down on those so called “tolerant democrats” who keep on mugging our officers. His order provides some serious considerations for these rioters across the country.
Our new and improved President has also made several other Executive actions towards the advancement of the American People. You can read them all at www.whitehouse.gov
So what do you think of Trump’s first few weeks in office? Good job or bad job? He has certainly stuck to the ideals of his campaign, that’s a first.
