That's some severe fucking overreach right there, I have doubts that Trump would sign that shit, he knows full well the alphabet agencies cannot be fucking trusted with this kind of power. We know for a fact that he reads through these entirely too rather than just signing it to get it over with. God willing, he tells them to fuck off and try again.
