That’s right. While all his critics are saying he can’t use executive orders for legislation, Trump doesn’t care. White House staffers said he can use a wartime emergency executive order to get passed what he wants.
“A lot of people are going to be evicted, but I’m going to stop it because I’ll do it myself if I have to,” Trump told reporters at an event at the White House. “I have a lot of powers with respect to executive orders, and we’re looking at that very seriously right now.”
He later said he could act to prevent people from having to go to homeless shelters, where he said they could be at higher risk of catching the coronavirus.
“They are thrown out viciously,” Trump said. “It’s not their fault.”
