Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called out Democrats’ apparent double standard on executive overreach. In an op-ed shared to Twitter, Paul slammed Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) for urging Joe Biden to use his executive power to declare a climate emergency.

He noted Schumer flip-flopped from his stance against President Trump taking the same approach on immigration. Paul claimed Democrats are willing to abandon the Constitution when one of their own is involved.

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 02: U.S. President Joe Biden makes brief remarks before signing several executive orders directing immigration actions for his administration in the Oval Office at the White House on February 02, 2021 in Washington, DC. The orders will aim to reunite migrant families that were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border and authorize a wholesale review of former President Donald Trump's immigration policies.

He said he warned Trump of the bad precedent his actions would set and now Democrats are doing the same. Paul said he wonders if any Democrats will stand up to Biden the way he himself has stood up to both parties.
