        The Lowdown | The Power of Executive Action and What Trump Can Do after Taking Office Lesson Plan

        Faced with a gridlocked Congress, President Obama used executive actions during his presidency to craft policies like the Clean Power Plan and make it possible for children of undocumented immigrants to remain in the country temporarily (DACA). Executive action is a powerful but fragile tool. What one president enacts, another can undo. This lesson explores the power of executive action and what policies and laws might change after President-elect Trump takes office in January 2017.
