According to new reports, executive orders that were once drafted in preparation for former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2o12 are now being recycled to the Trump administration.
Statements given by Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt to BuzzFeed indicate that at least four dozen executive orders prepared for Romney had he won the election are now being tasked to President Trump.
Romney never laid eyes on these executive orders, since they were created during the transition planning before the 2012 election results.
For example, Trump signed an order on Monday that was nearly identical to a proposed and planned executive order for Romney four years ago, titled “Minimizing the Economic Burden of Obamacare Pending Repeal.” The current version was slightly updated due to the evolution of the Affordable Care Act in former President Obama’s second term.
A second example of a recycled executive order involves reviews of prohibited U.S. interrogation techniques and the CIA’s use of “black site” prisons in foreign regions.
