President Joe Biden has signed 28 executive orders during his first six days in office — more than any other president in history.

The Epoch Times noted the record in a story posted Tuesday. It attributed the information to the American Presidency Project.

It pointed out Biden’s measures included reversals of some of the policies of former President Donald Trump, including stopping funding for the construction of a border wall and canceling the Keystone XL pipeline project.

According to the Federal Register, Trump had signed 220 executive orders during his entire  presidency.

At one point, he came under criticism from congressional lawmakers and others for his continued use of the orders. But GOP reaction to Trump’s orders was muted since many Republicans had attacked President Barack Obama for using executive orders, The Washington Post had said.

The newspaper pointed out that commentator Elie Honig had noted that comparing the use of executive orders between presidents is a difficult task.

According to the Post, Honig maintained the issue isn’t necessarily the quantity of them but what they contain. Executive orders shouldn’t create new law but should act within the framework of legislation already passed by Congress, he said.

Meanwhile, The Epoch Times reported Biden’s measures also include pandemic related actions, including imposing a mask mandate on federal property and reinstating travel restrictions on non-U.S. citizens traveling from Brazil, South Africa, and much of Europe.
