President Donald Trump has signed a number of executive actions, including executive orders and presidential memorandums, aimed both at fulfilling his campaign promises and at rolling back the policies of former President Barack Obama.

By the end of Friday’s meeting, he had signed two executive orders — one extending the terms of the National Council for the American Worker and the other instructing the federal government to prioritize job applicants' skills rather than qualifications.

A third followed in the evening, making good on the president’s promise to protect monuments, memorials, and statues from protesters.

The busy day was exactly what close aides and allies wanted. Last week, a number of concerned members of Trump World spoke to the Washington Examiner warning that the president’s reelection campaign had become dangerously unfocused and urging Trump to portray himself as a man of action, in contrast with presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who rarely leaves home.

“He is getting the message,” said a member of his 2016 transition team. “This is the right track to be on.”

The issue came to a head last week after the president’s disastrous rally in Tulsa. After claiming that a million people had registered to attend, coverage was dominated by pictures of empty seats and clips of the 14 minutes Trump spent railing against the way the media had treated his U.S. Military Academy graduation appearance.

  Trump increasingly turning to executive orders, more to come WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is setting a brisk pace lately in issuing executive orders and he’s just getting started as he tries to position himself as a man of action on everything from foreign policy to racial justice in an election year. The impact of some of the orders, though, is less than meets the eye. Trump has so far issued 33 executive orders this year, though he was a critic of such actions when running for office. He’s on pace to exceed his high of 55 executive orders issued during his first year in office. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

It followed weeks of polls that suggest Trump is lagging behind Biden in many of the battleground states that will decide the election. In a sign of the trouble his campaign faces, a survey published on Monday by Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling found that Biden has a 4-point lead in Georgia, a longtime Republican stronghold.

A former White House official said: "People don’t want to hear ‘woe is me’ tweets, they want to see him solving problems with action."

Steve Bannon, who was appointed White House chief strategist by Trump in 2017 before the two fell out, was among those making the case publicly and privately for a change of direction.

“He’s the president of the United States,” he said on the John Fredericks radio show. “He’s not a candidate. You act like president of the United States, you take action like the president of the United States, you govern like you are president of the United States, you are going to be reelected.”

Biden tops Trump in June, 2nd-quarter cash; GOP still flush

  Biden tops Trump in June, 2nd-quarter cash; GOP still flush ATLANTA (AP) — Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden outpaced President Donald Trump's campaign fundraising juggernaut in June and in the second quarter of this election year, continuing a stunning reversal of fortune from his threadbare primary campaign. The joint GOP effort still has considerably more cash left to spend ahead of the Nov. 3 election, but Biden's newfound fundraising muscle suggests Democrats will have the resources to finance a strong operation across a wide footprint of battleground states.

Trump allies accuse Obama of trying to 'box in' president -elect with Russian sanctions, anti-Israel vote and string of last-minute executive orders . Kellyanne Conway warned Thursday night that new computer hacking sanctions against Russia have a political motivation.

Fredericks, whose show has hosted a number of Trump allies making the same point in recent days and who is a member of the Trump/Pence 2020 advisory board, said he remained concerned at the way the campaign was dismissing polls that showed the president’s campaign was misfiring.

“The Trump campaign is running a losing effort,” he said. “Until you come to grips with that, you are not going to change anything. That’s the message we are trying to get out.”

But he said the sudden rush of executive orders and last week’s visit to the border wall suggested the message was getting through. The president, he said, had done more in three days toward explaining his second-term agenda than he had in the previous six months.

“If he continues to drive things himself that will benefit the lives of people, he will have a much better narrative than he does right now,” he said.

Simply beating up on Biden, he added, would not be enough to win the election without a clear manifesto for a second term.

Supporters believe the latest executive orders on employment and protecting monuments will chime with campaign priorities of rebuilding the economy plus law and order.

But for their part, campaign officials shrugged off the idea that a president who created 2.1 million jobs in 2019 alone, rolled back regulations, and helped more than 5 million people off food stamps needed to prove that he was a man of action or still in touch with voters' priorities.

Samantha Zager, a spokeswoman for the Trump Campaign, said: “President Trump knows how to lead the economy back from the global pandemic: Last month saw both a record-breaking jobs surge and record-breaking consumer spending jump as the economy reopens and Americans get back to work.”
