Bernie Sanders Campaign Reportedly Prepping ‘Dozens’ of Possible Executive Orders

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) campaign is reportedly prepping a variety of executive orders in the event that Sanders wins the Democrat nomination and defeats President Trump in November — orders that include stopping the construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, legalizing marijuana, and declaring climate change a “national emergency,” according to a document obtained by the Washington Post.
