The President-elect Donald Trump is serious about making the required changes in the government, this will require a lot of effort and for his administration to optimize on its time in office. Sean Spicer, who’s the spokesman was cited by Reuters saying that the President-elect Donald Trump may take four or five executive actions on Friday as soon as he is sworn into office.
Speaking at a news briefing on Wednesday, Spicer said that Trump has got four to five executive actions that he’s going to sign on Friday. Adding that there’s other actions that he’s also expected to sign with respect to a couple of issues that Trump has prioritized. However, Spicer did nor expound. It’s no surprise since Trump had pledged to take executive actions as soon as he takes up office to counter some of the policies of Democratic President Obama. It’s still unclear as to what actions he’ll take. However, Forbes has compiled a list of Obama’s own Executive Orders which will be most likely targeted by Mr. Trump.
The complexity of overturning regulatory executive orders grows as Washington administers more private, state or local concerns, without Congress passing a law. However, most executive orders are not regulatory. Obama has issued executive orders on Non-Retaliation for Disclosure of Compensation Information decree, a minimum wage for federal contractors, the controversial orders on cybersecurity information sharing and sanctions on individuals allegedly engaged in malicious cyber activity, an order on paid sick leave for federal contractors among others.
Obama’s regulatory pro-antitrust which steps to increase competition and better inform consumers and workers to support continued growth of the American economy is very controversial as it seeks to cast most blame for the anti-competitive business practices on private actors like the telecommunications sector, rather than the regulatory state’s cronyism, public/private partnerships and government favors.
