Executive orders an not necessarily an abuse of administrative powers but too many of them in a short time can be an abuse of power. If we look at the last few presidents.

42 Bill Clinton. over 8 years
43 George W. Bush over 8 years
44 Barack Obama over 8 years
45 Donald Trump. over 2 years

This shows that president Trump has been issuing far more executive orders than his predecessors.
