Obama Does the UNTHINKABLE Right Before Trump Is Inaugurated...

President Barack Obama has been rushing through all manner of actions and executive orders since the election.

He has just days to go to push through what he wants.

He’s speeding ahead with it, despite objections from the Trump team.

From WaPo:

In the past week, the Obama administration overturned a decades­-old policy toward Cuban immigrants, forged two major agreements to address racial bias in big-city police departments and approved an unexpected cut in mortgage insurance premiums for hundreds of thousands of low-income and first-time home buyers.

Officials even made time, after years of lobbying, to add the rusty patched bumble bee to the list of endangered species.

In the final days before President Obama leaves office, administration officials are rushing to complete dozens of tasks that will affect millions of lives and solidify the president’s imprint on history. But in many cases, their permanence is uncertain, and President-elect Donald Trump is already pledging to undo some of them after taking office.

“He is clearly using executive power aggressively and trying to do as much as possible in his final days,” Princeton University history and public affairs professor Julian Zelizer said in an email

Obama pushed through at least 571 major rules while in office, nearly 63% more than George W. Bush, according to the Washington Post.


For weeks, congressional Republicans and members of the Trump transition team have questioned why the White House is pressing ahead given that the GOP will control both the executive and legislative branch for at least the next two years.

On Dec. 5, 23 Republican senators wrote Obama a letter asking that his administration “cease issuing new, nonemergency rules and regulations given the recent election results of November 8.”

The Obama administration has even accelerated hiring federal employees, with the anticipation that President-elect Donald Trump may freeze hiring once he assumes office.

Both Trump and Pence have promised to reverse a lot of Obama policies once they assume office.

Congress is also passed legislation Jan. 4 that would allow lawmakers to overturn any Obama rule made in the last 60 legislative days of Obama’s tenure in a single vote.

Hopefully, they are able to get rid of at least some of what Obama is trying to rush through now.
