Donald Trump Doesn’t Believe in the Constitution – Rolling Stone

  • The Trump’s idea of denying defense to someone accused of a crime contradicts the Constitution that has been understood to require that everyone charged with serious offenses in this country receive defense counsel.
  • Trump’s call for cruel and unusual punishment negates the Eighth Amendment that prohibits “cruel and unusual punishment.”
  • Trump’s threat to sue newspapers show that he does not know, or believe in the First Amendment protects the freedom of the press. Part of that protection is that no public figure can sue as a result of a bad story without proving malice
  • The Trump’s recently announced maternity leave plan includes no coverage for fathers, which shows his lack of concern for the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause
  • Trump’s belief that women and doctors should be punished for abortion shows that he doesn’t believe in a constitutional right to privacy under the Due Process Clause
  • Trump doesn’t understand the difference between state and federal authority
  • Trump does not care about separation of powers

A summary of this report provides ample proof that the Trump is misinformed, malicious, or not concerned in regards to the foundations of democracy in the United States.                                                                                                                                            via Donald Trump Doesn’t Believe in the Constitution – Rolling Stone
