President Joe Biden (D) issued two executive orders in June, bringing his total number to 117.

The two orders he issued in June were:

“Biden issued 25 executive orders in January 2021, more than any other month of his presidency. He did not issue any executive orders in November 2022 and January 2023,” said Ballotpedia. 

“Biden is averaging 47 executive orders per year, the third-most among presidents since 1981. Donald Trump (R) averaged 55 executive orders per year, the most in that time. Barack Obama (D) averaged 35 per year, the fewest in that time,” said Ballotpedia.

“Franklin D. Roosevelt (D) issued 307 executive orders per year on average, the most of all U.S. presidents. William Henry Harrison (Whig) averaged the fewest, issuing none during his one month in office. Three presidents issued only one executive order each: James Madison (Democratic-Republican), James Monroe (Democratic-Republican), and John Adams (Federalist),” said Ballotpedia.
