I agree that determining whether an executive order is an abuse of administrative power will align with your personal interests. I also agree that it seems that executive orders have increased over the past few administrations which means the executive is exercising more and more power relative to the powers of the other branches but it seems that due to the fact that executive orders can be overridden by the court or by congress, that they aren’t exactly an unchecked power, although they may divert extra time and energy into trying to undo them.
