Executive Orders (EO), issued by the current sitting US President at the time, are nothing new to America. In fact, our first President, George Washington, issued 8 of them during his presidency. From my research, it is generally understood that EO’s stem from two areas of the US Constitution; and both references that substantiate EO’s are fairly weak. As one website explains:
Presidents have been issuing executive orders since 1789 even though the Constitution does not explicitly give them the right to do so. However, vague wording in Article II Section 1 and Article II Section 2 gives the president this privilege. Executive orders also include National Security directives and Homeland Security Presidential Directives.
