The Biden administration has imposed a record number of presidential actions. According to reports on Friday, Biden has pushed over 40 executive orders, directives and moratoriums in his first 10 days in office.
Number of Executive Orders on Day 1 in office:
Clinton – 1
Bush – 0
Obama – 5
Trump – 1
Biden – 19
America doesn’t need more Executive Orders. It needs Congress do to its job by legislating. That’s how our system of government was designed.https://t.co/8vDXK5W3Bt

Several of his actions aimed to reverse President Trump’s immigration and climate policies and replace them with his agenda.
The Biden administration has also been trying to push a nearly $2 trillion stimulus package through Congress.
“The notion here is we have to act now. There’s no time for any delay,” Biden stated. “So we can end up with four million fewer jobs this year, according to Moody’s the Wall Street firm, and it could take a year longer to return to full employment if we don’t act and don’t act now.”
Biden is expected to slow down rolling out executive orders next week as he looks to shift gears to tackling the COVID-19 pandemic.
