Before A Single Vote Has Been Cast, Bernie Sanders is Drafting Executive Orders

There are still over five months until the Democrats even choose their nominee.

Bernie Sanders is apparently fond of counting chickens before they hatch.

The Democratic Socialist from Vermont is one of the “top tier” candidates in the 2020 race for the White House, and his campaign has already internally insinuated that he believes he’ll be winning the Iowa caucuses.

As if this weren’t enough, Sanders is apparently drafting executive orders for his coming presidency five and a half months before the Democratic National Convention, and more than nine months before the general election.

“As we continue discussing the early work of your presidency and the progress we can make, below for review is a brief overview of executive actions you could take early in your administration,” read a document reviewed by the Post. “We cannot accept delays from Congress on some of the most pressing issues, especially those like immigration where Trump has governed with racism and for his own corrupt benefit.”

Several of the executive orders would reverse President Trump’s policies on immigration, including an immediate halt of border wall construction, removing a limit on accepting refugees for asylum, and reinstating the Obama-era DACA program.

Other orders include a ban on the exportation of crude oil to combat climate change, and the severing of any federal contracts with companies that pay employees less than $15 an hour.

Executive orders have been a controversial subject in recent years, as many political observers see them as nothing more than a way for the Executive Branch to sidestep other coequal branches of our government.
