Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th and current President of the United States. Before entering politics he was a businessman and television personality. Trump was born and raised in Queens, New York City, and earned an economics degree from the Wharton School. He then took charge of The Trump Organization, the real estate and construction firm founded by his paternal grandmother, which he ran for over 45 years until 2016. Despite all odds, he became the 45th President of the United States.
What is an Executive Order?
"An Executive Order is an official statement from the president about how the federal agencies he oversees are to use their resources. [It] is not the president creating new law...; it is the president instructing the government how it is to work within the parameters that are already set by the Congress and the Constitution." Washington Post 1/27/17
What is a memoranda?
Presidential memorandas do not have to be published or numbered (though they can be) and usually delegate tasks that Congress has already assigned the president to members of the executive branch. Trump issued 28 memoranda. Business Insider 5/3/17
What is a Proclamation?
Proclamations like President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, have carried enormous weight, but most are ceremonial observances of federal holidays or awareness months. Trump issued 30 proclamations. Washington Post 5/3/17
