Obama also took action to ban offshore drilling in areas of the Arctic and Atlantic oceans indefinitely citing environmental reasons, a move aimed at making it more difficult for Trump to undo his legacy of progress on climate change issues.
Obama has also been shipping prisoners out of Guantanamo Bay to reduce its population, although Trump has vowed to "load up" the detention facility. Trump repeatedly vowed during the campaign to undo many of the executive actions Obama implemented during his presidency. Gingrich argued on Fox News that much of Obama's legacy is tied to executive actions, "almost all of which will be repudiated by Trump.

CNN reported that Trump was willing to not discuss Hong Kong freedoms in exchange for some sort of trade deal. I am wondering if you think that he grasps the moral as well as the practical dimension of what you have laid out. All I can say is that his Secretary of State gave a brilliant speech at the Hudson Institute which captured all of it: the technological threat, the economic threat, and the moral threat, and did it brilliantly.

I will allow Pompeo to speak for Trump on this. Were you at all concerned that Trump wanted the Chinese government—or the Chinese Communist Party, as you would say—to investigate Joe Biden and his son, and that American policy in China, which you view as the challenge of our future, would be wrapped up in domestic political disputes?

If you ask me, there is no evidence. This whole thing is like mirrors within mirrors. You have a whistle-blower who is not actually blowing the whistle, who turned out not to know anything, and wrote a letter which was mostly false. Well, if you go through and read it, he made all sorts of assertions that were just plain not true.
Look, most of the media hates Trump. Most of the news media is desperate to get rid of Trump. I want to try and have this conversation as two human beings. Thank you.
