President Trump is preparing to sign executive orders on a wide range of topics, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said Monday.
Meadows said in a Fox News interview that the orders will address China, immigration, manufacturing jobs and the cost of prescription drugs.
“This president will do more in the next four weeks than Joe Biden and his team did in the last 40 years,” Meadows said.
But the chief of staff gave few details during the interview or a subsequent discussion with reporters on the White House driveway.
Meadows, a former North Carolina congressman, said the executive orders are necessary because Congress left town for the July 4 holiday and won’t return soon.
“They’re disappearing for almost three weeks, I don’t know that in this particular environment that you can just stand by and say, ‘We can just take a three-week vacation,” Meadows said.
“Most Americans don’t get that — and so for us, it’s dealing with a number of executive orders that may go all the way from dealing with some of the immigration issues that we have before us, to some of the manufacturing and jobs issues that are before us, and ultimately dealing with China and what we need to do there in terms of resetting that balance.”
Meadows said he would “let the executive orders speak for themselves.”
