Trump did not say when he would sign the order , and some of his past promises to use executive action have gone unfulfilled. "Well, you obviously cannot do that. You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order ," House Speaker Paul Ryan told a Kentucky radio station.

The scene President Trump illustrated while addressing a southwest Iowa crowd this week was like something out of a storybook.

He harked back to Feb. 28, 2017, when he sat in the Oval Office surrounded by, as Trump put it Tuesday, “homebuilders and farmers mostly, and ranchers.” The president was preparing to sign an executive order instructing a review of the Obama-era Waters of the United States rule, which he and other critics opposed for levying excessive federal regulation over farmers’ land.

When he put pen to paper, Trump recalled, the nearly two dozen men and women standing behind him wept with joy. The emotional outpouring was apparently a first for a contingent in the room, as many of them had never cried before.

And I signed that, and behind me I had homebuilders and farmers mostly, and ranchers. And many of them never cried in their life, including when they born, and they were crying. Yeah," Trump said. “It’s true, though. They were crying behind me. You know that. You know that, Pete. They were crying because we gave them back their land. We took it away.

President Trump, June 11, 2019

A truly heartwarming moment — if it had actually happened that way. Oval Office video of Trump signing the executive order two years ago tells a slightly different story.

Trump claims 'a National Holiday would be immediately declared' if Obama made the deals he has

Trump claims 'a National Holiday would be immediately declared' if Obama made the deals he has President Trump on Sunday claimed that "a National Holiday would be immediately declared" if former President Barack Obama made the deals on immigration and the economy that he has.

Many smiled. Some nodded along. Nearly everyone applauded.

But not one person in the video is seen crying.

The conflicting versions of events were noticed by journalist and fact-checker Daniel Dale, who tweeted the observation Thursday afternoon. He’ll be the first to tell you that Trump’s stories about people crying around him are nothing new. As The Washington Post’s JM Rieger wrote earlier this year, a number of Trump’s tales involve “powerful” or “strong” people shedding tears upon meeting him.

Schumer (D-N.Y.) and has claimed — at least twice — that unnamed chief executives of unspecified “big companies” had turned on the waterworks in his presence.
