It is my understanding EO's only affect Federal Employees who are part of the offices under the purview of the President. They do not apply to ordinary citizens.

So, are you guys saying you hope Trump has the power to seize assets without due process rights by being placed on a list? That's what it seems like you're saying.

Anybody clarify?

It seems this is in reference to "foreign" government officials of countries who are deemed to be in violation of human rights. This would not apply to US government officials.

My understanding as well. This is a justification to seize wealth, period.
