The Los Angeles Times reviewed 101 executive orders President Trump has signed since inauguration day, and interviewed experts, advocates and administration officials about their effects.
“Many were geared toward favored political constituencies, including veterans, blue-collar workers and evangelical Christians. Few moved policy significantly; generally the orders created committees or task forces, demanded reports or pressed for enforcement of existing laws.”
“The president’s executive orders are more modest, though Americans wouldn’t know it from the ceremonies the White House stages. Many orders seek action from Cabinet secretaries, something Trump could easily accomplish with a phone call.”Save to Favorites
