Trump is acting like a king, not a president

Our constitution is under attack. President Donald Trump refuses to believe in the Doctrine of the Separation of Powers. The only power he believes in is his own.

The writers of the Constitution anticipated that someone like Donald Trump could be elected president. But they didn’t expect that this person would refuse to follow the rule of law and declare that he could do anything he wanted and not be held accountable.

The tragedy of it all is that we have a Republican Senate who agrees with him.

It’s time for President Donald Trump to review his oath of office. The main duty of a president is to live up to this oath, to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” If a president betrays his oath, he is subject to impeachment and removal from office according to Article II-Section 4 of the Constitution.

The House of Representatives has now impeached the president because of the July 25 phone call that revealed a transaction called bribery. Will the Senate vote to convict the president and have him removed from office? President Donald Trump is acting more and more like a king, instead of an elected president. We should all be concerned.
