A new analysis of Donald Trump’s proposals and plans by the ACLU revealed that a Trump presidency would violate numerous articles of the Constitution.
The ACLU report revealed how dangerous a Trump presidency could be:
The analysis examines Trump’s campaign promises to deport over 11 million undocumented immigrants, to ban Muslims from entering the United States, to surveil American Muslims and their houses of worship, to reinstate torture, and to revise libel laws.
“If implemented, Donald Trump’s proposed policies will spark a constitutional and legal challenge that would require all hands on deck at the ACLU,” said ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero. “The ACLU and its more than 300 attorneys in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., stand ready to challenge and impede implementation of his unlawful proposals, should he attempt to see them through.”
The ACLU said Trump’s proposals would violate the First, Fourth, Fifth, and Eighth Amendments of the Constitution. Throughout his presidential campaign, Trump has sparked controversy with his stated positions on immigration, Muslim Americans, torture, and freedom of speech, among other issues.
“Taken together, his policies and positions, if put into place, would violate the Constitution and federal and international law,” Romero said. “We stand ready to defend our Constitution.”
Apparently, Trump is okay on the 12 Article of the Constitution but that is because it exists only in Trump’s mind.
The threat that Trump poses to the system which our government is built on is real. Donald Trump will stomp all over the Constitution.
At a time when attacks like the one in Nice, France inspire fear in many, it is vital that people like Donald Trump not be allowed to manipulate fears to destroy our liberties.
The warning signs are there for all to see. Trump’s agenda is a threat to the freedom of all, and an attack on the Constitution.
