USA Today: GOP, Trump are Hypocrites on Executive Action, but Not Obama

The editorial board for USA Today [1] issued an editorial on Donald Trump’s use of executive orders, where Trump has issued twenty executive orders in his first ten days in office as President, and called Trump and the GOP┬áhypocrites for embracing executive action.

The one caveat? Obama issued eighteen executive actions,┬áranging from memorandum to executive orders, in his first ten days of office. USA Today has a point about executive orders versus executive actions, but Obama still issued eighteen actions and that is two shy of Trump’s executive orders.

Splitting hairs, USA Today.
