We may find out if this has crossed the line, as he's now being investigated by the Senate Budget Committee, although what teeth they have, and whether anything will come of it, at least before the election, who knows.

That's what politicians do. It's either selling themselves to the oil companies or the unions, promising to screw the rich in favor of the poor or the debt in favor of freebies.

"I promise to provide XXX and your taxes won't go up, that other group will pay for all of it. Vote for me."

That is somewhat different to "Pay me $1 bn and I'll enact whatever Executive orders you want". ;)

Haven't they (Big Oil) also drafted some Executive orders for him, though?
