New President Joe Biden has set a “record” signing 33 executive orders in just one week. These include 12 executive orders that directly reverse President Trump’s core policies.
CNN reported that Mr. Biden “issued [a total of] 33 executive orders, actions, statements, memos and agency guidelines” within the first six days of his inauguration.
As such, so far Mr Biden has signed more executive orders than the previous four presidents combined. In the first few weeks of his inauguration, Mr. Trump signed four executive orders, Mr. Obama signed five executive orders, Mr. George W. Bush signed none, and Mr. Bill Clinton signed one.
