Trump’s Executive Orders and Memorandums in His First 100 Days

#50. America-First Offshore Energy Strategy (Executive Order)

On April 28, Trump signed an order to implement an offshore energy “America First” strategy. Increased domestic energy production on federal lands and waters will reduce reliance on imported energy and lower energy prices, helping the economy, the order states. It continues:

It shall be the policy of the United States to encourage energy exploration and production, including on the Outer Continental Shelf, in order to maintain the Nation’s position as a global energy leader and foster energy security and resilience for the benefit of the American people, while ensuring that any such activity is safe and environmentally responsible.”

The strategy will include looking into revising the schedule of oil and gas lease sales to include sales in Outer Continental Shelf Planning Areas. The strategy will also look into streamlining permitting for privately funded seismic data research to determine offshore energy potential.

This order’s focus is on expanding drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans, Fox News reported. The order reviews possible locations for off-shore oil and gas exploration. The order also reverses, partially, an effort by former President Barack Obama in December to designate some U.S. waters as off limits to oil and gas leasing.

#48. Memo to Determine if Aluminum Imports Threaten National Security

On April 27, Trump signed a memo to the Secretary of Commerce regarding whether aluminum imports threatened national security due to unfair trade practices. The memo says, in part:

 Core industries such as steel, aluminum, vehicles, aircraft, shipbuilding, and semiconductors are critical elements of our manufacturing and defense industrial bases, which we must defend against unfair trade practices and other abuses.

Large volumes and excess capacity of aluminum result from foreign government subsidies and unfair practices, the memo states. The Secretary should investigate this to determine if unfair trade practices are harming national security, and if domestic production of aluminum can meet national defense requirements, and possibly recommend actions to adjust aluminum imports.

In laymen’s terms, this is a review of the OLA’s bailout process for big banks, and looks at a new bankruptcy process. According to The Hill, Democrats typically see this as safeguarding against another financial crisis.

The review will also look at other specifics, such as whether determinations include quantification of expected losses and if entities have a chance to show how they will reduce perceived risk.

In laymen’s terms, it directed assessment of the FSOC’s “too big to fail” process, which Republicans say is applied inconsistently, The Hill reported.

As of May 2015, $2.3 billion in antidumping and countervailing duties owed to the Government remained uncollected, often from importers that lack assets located in the United States.  It is therefore the policy of the United States to impose appropriate bonding requirements, based on risk assessments, on entries of articles subject to antidumping and countervailing duties, when necessary to protect the revenue of the United States.”
