Trump: Obama Setting Precedent on Executive Orders
Donald Trump accused President Barack Obama on Sunday of setting a precedent on executive orders.
“Well, I will say this: There’s a lot of precedent based on what he’s doing,” Trump said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” when asked if he would use the same tactic as president.
“I mean, he just – the one thing good about executive orders: The new president, if he comes in – boom, first day, first hour, first minute, you can rescind that,” he said.
The Hill reports:
The billionaire businessman said he is opposed to Obama’s attempt to curb gun purchases, arguing the problem has more to do with mental health than the availability of firearms.
“Right now, they have plenty of rules and regulations,” he said. “And they should be looking at mental health.”
“I mean, we should build, like, institutions for people that are sickos,” he added. “We have sickos all over the place. And that’s the problem.”
