White House spokesman Sean Spicer declined to discuss any impending executive orders when questioned by reporters on Thursday.

Many of Trump’s critics reacted in outrage to the reports of the upcoming executive order.

Trump is scheduled to sign new, unspecified executive orders on Friday at 12 p.m. eastern:
