Trump turns to once-mocked executive orders to tout wins

Washington( CNN) President Donald Trump, hoping to stack his first 100 days with as many accomplishments as is practicable, has relied heavily on the use of executive orders, actions he decried as a 2016 candidate.

Trump, after Thursday, will have signed 29 executive orders, more than any President in the last 72 years, when President Harry Truman signed 57 orders in his first 100 days.

While the orders have operated the gamut from immigration to federal lands, they all offer Trump a key benefit: The they are able to tout wins without going through the arduous legwork of working with Congress to pass legislation.
