Executive Orders: Doing a Good Thing in a Bad Way

While I expected that if Donald Trump got elected and really did follow through on his promise to end the Johnson Amendment he would use the bully pulpit to motivate congress to repeal it, if reports of a leaked executive order draft are correct, President Trump has instead chosen to issue an executive order which instructs the executive branch to ignore this law.
