Donald Trump has been breaking the law his entire life. The number of lawsuits against this man, whether business-related or personal, is absolutely insane and anyone who has known the president over the decades can confidently state that the president has lied, cheated, and violated the law repeatedly to get where he is.
Trump’s followers thought that the former reality television star would somehow become presidential material once his term started, but we have yet to see that happen. Not only is his behavior somehow more atrocious but he still has no respect for the law and doesn’t believe he needs to follow the same rules as everyone else — and he hates when you tell him otherwise.
According to a New York Times report, Trump flies off the handle whenever someone from his team tells him he can’t do something because it’s illegal. This disturbing behavior recently came to light thanks to the firing of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson, whose relationship with Trump became extremely tense and abusive due to this very reason. The Times wrote:
The president berated Ms. Nielsen regularly, calling her at home early in the mornings to demand that she take action to stop migrants from entering the country, including doing things that were clearly illegal, like blocking all migrants from seeking asylum. She repeatedly noted the limitations imposed on her department by federal laws, court settlements and international obligations.
Those responses only infuriated Mr. Trump further. The president’s fury erupted in the spring of 2018 as Ms. Nielsen hesitated for weeks about whether to sign a memo ordering the routine separation of migrant children from their families so that the parents could be detained.”
Trump has a history of being verbally abusive and that’s been public for quite some time. But his behavior toward those who are trying to uphold the law is absolutely terrifying and should not be done by someone who is holding office. America literally has a criminal in the Oval Office and the GOP is doing nothing about it.
