A List Of All The Disastrous Executive Orders Donald Trump Has Signed So Far

Since taking office Donald Trump has signed 10 executive orders.

The orders are basically a right wing voter's wet dream as it is the Obama administration's agenda in reverse.

It rolls back everything from healthcare to a woman's right to choose to environmental protections and regulations.

Here’s the list of Trump’s destructive executive actions so far...

1: Obamacare Rollback

Mr. Trump has allowed all agency heads to waive requirements of the Affordable Care Act to the “maximum extent permitted by law.

2: Regulation Freeze

Trump has seen fit to freeze all regulations now in process (but not approved) until they are approved by him or an agency after he took office. This means any regulation signed by former President Barack Obama in his final weeks in office — including some that deal with energy efficiency standards — are on hold until they’re reviewed by Trump’s administration.

3: Abortion Restrictions

This order reinstates the Global Gag Rule which bars any US foreign aid from going to any nongovernmental organization that provide abortion services. It will cause thousands of women will die across the world, and millions will lose access to both safe abortion and birth control.

4: Withdrawal From The TPP

This memorandum withdraws the United States from all Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations and from signing the trade deal. It formally pulls the US out of massive 12-nation trade deal that covers 40 percent of world's economy and will allow China to rewrite it's economic rules at the expense of American workers.

5: Federal Hiring Freeze

The president has told agencies they cannot fill any vacant positions nor open new ones, with two exceptions: military personnel and critical public safety positions. This measure will even stop hiring at the Department of Veterans Affairs which will hurt Trump's favorite props.

6Speeding Approval Of The Dakota Access Pipeline

President Trump ordered that permits for the the Dakota Access Pipeline be approved in an expedited manner, “including easements or rights-of-way to cross Federal areas.” If approved it will pave the way for a 1,172-mile pipeline from North Dakota to Illinois.

7Speeding Approval Of The Keystone XL Oil Pipeline

In the Keystone memorandum Trump invited TransCanada to resubmit its application for a pipeline permit, and he directed the State Department to issue a final decision on that application within 60 days. If approved it will pave the way for a 1,179-mile cross-border pipeline from Alberta to Nebraska. Trump reportedly owns stock in Energy Transfer Partners which is building the pipeline.

9American Steel In New Oil Pipelines

President Trump directed the Commerce Secretary to come up with a plan to ensure that all pipelines built or repaired in the United States be constructed with American-made materials.

8Speeding Up Environmental Reviews For All Priority Infrastructure

Trump ordered that agencies and the chairman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality work together to speedup deadlines and environmental approval for “high priority” infrastructure projects. It will give significant power and responsibility to the White House Council on Environmental Quality chairman whom the Trump administration has not even nominated yet.

10: Review Manufacturing Regulations

In this memorandum orders the Commerce Secretary to begin a 60-day review of regulations for American manufacturers, with the aim of finding ways to speed up permitting and all federal processes for them. What are the chances something will be missed or overlooked?

Remember when using executive orders made you a tyrant?
