It seems that President Biden is another politician who says one thing and does the complete opposite once they get into office. In 2020, before taking office, Biden made it abundantly clear that using executive orders to legislate was wrong and that doing so was only acceptable for dictators. However, now that he’s sitting in the Oval Office, it seems his moral compass has gone out the window, and he’s doing just that.
BIDEN IN 2020: You can't legislate by executive order "unless you're a dictator!"

Biden’s team, of course, tries to justify his actions by claiming that only certain types of executive orders are dictatorial, and that he hasn’t signed any of them. But, as we’ve seen in little over two years, Biden has signed executive orders that circumvent the wishes of the American people and their representatives in the legislative branch. These orders cover issues such as guns, COVID policy, abortion, and climate change.
I announced an executive order on gun violence to intensify our work to save lives. It will keep firearms out of dangerous hands, takes every lawful action to move as close to universal background checks without new legislation, expands awareness about red flag laws, and more.

This Court has made it clear it will not protect the rights of women.
I will. That’s why today I'm signing an Executive Order to protect access to reproductive health care.

I’ve called on Congress to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, but Senate Republicans have stood in the way of progress. That’s why this afternoon, I’m taking action and signing an Executive Order that delivers the most significant police reform in decades.

Today, I signed an executive order directing the federal government to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

The future of the auto industry is electric — and made in America.
Today I'm signing an executive order with a goal to make 50% of new vehicles sold by 2030 zero-emission — and unveiling steps to reverse the previous administration’s short-sighted rollback of vehicle standards.

Just last week, Biden’s Climate “Czar”, John Kerry, boasted about how the President is using executive orders to force his disastrous climate policies on the United States. It seems that the only consistency we can expect from President Biden is his inconsistency, yet another politician who likes to flip-flop depending on which way the political wind is blowing.
It’s disappointing that the Commander-in-chief, who took an oath to defend the United States Constitution, is actively undermining its basic principles by resorting to dictatorial tactics. It’s a betrayal of the trust that the American people placed in him during the election.
In conclusion, it’s disappointing us to see President Biden is doing the exact same thing he once defined as dictatorial, proving that his leadership style lacks the core principles of consistency and dedication to democracy.
