Newt Gingrich: Donald Trump will abolish 70 percent of Obama’s executive orders within days

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich predicted Sunday that President-elect Donald Trump will devastate President Obama’s legacy by immediately rescinding up to 70 percent of the Democrat’s executive orders.“I think in the opening couple days, he’s going to repeal 60 to 70 percent of Obama’s legacy by simply vetoing out all of the various executive orders that Obama used because he couldn’t get anything through Congress,” Mr. Gingrich said on the Fox Business’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”Shortly after the election, Mr. Obama advised Mr. Trump to enact his agenda via Congress, saying that “going through the legislative process is always better because in part it’s harder to undo.”That’s a lesson Mr. Obama may learn the hard way, Mr. Gingrich said
