Donald J. Trump, lover of all things autocratic, congratulated President Xi Jinping of China on the recent removal of term limits for his office, effectively making Xi president for life. At a gathering of Republican donors at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, Trump was recorded saying, “He’s now president for life. President for life. No, he’s great, and look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot some day.”
Yes indeed, Trump, admirer of Putin, Erdoğan, Xi, and Duterte, wants to be President for Life too. How wonderful! Treasonous trump has always ignored the Constitution when it suited him and cares nothing for the rule of law. Now he wants to tear up the constitution completely.
The 2018 elections must result in the election of Senators and Representatives that will actually do their constitutionally mandated job. We need a Congress that will stand up to Trump and put an end to the subversion of our government.
