Saw this while I was waiting for an appointment with some cooked pork. Please read the linked article below:
wiki page here.
Note that this was an “executive order” / “presidential directive”. It is issued with the advice & consent of his “national security council”, which are just cabinet members (members of the executive branch), not necessarily congressmen, etc.
Congress can overrule it by passing some kind of law I guess.
I’m not saying the prez is planning a coup, but, like the author, I think that is one dangerous decree to let ride.
