Washington: It wasn't too long ago that Donald Trump derided presidential executive orders as "power grabs" and a "basic disaster."

He's switched sides in a big way: In each year of his presidency, he has issued more executive orders than did former President Barack Obama during the same span. He surpassed Obama's third-year total just recently.

 

Back in 2012, Trump tweeted: "Why Is @BarackObama constantly issuing executive orders that are major power grabs of authority?" Andrew Rudalevige, a professor at Bowdoin College, says Trump appears to have learned what his predecessors discovered, too: It's easier and often more satisfying to get things done through administrative action than to get Congress to go along.
