Trump mulls executive orders targeting China, manufacturing and “Dreamers”, says aide
WASHINGTON (US) – US chief of staff Mark Meadows said on Monday that President Donald Trump was mulling several executive orders aimed at China, manufacturing and immigration.
“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, in what we need to do there in terms of resetting that balance,” Meadows said.
After assuming office in 2017, President Trump has endeavoured to rescind a programme that offers protection to hundreds of thousands of immigrants living in the US from deportation after illegally entering the country as children. This group is often termed “Dreamers”.
Last month, the Supreme Court blocked the president’s efforts to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy put in place by former President Barack Obama.
