Opinion: Donald Trump and his tyranny are hurting America

If anyone is still waiting for proof positive that President Donald Trump has become a tyrant, the wait is now over. On Saturday, February 4, he tweeted the following message after a US Federal judge issued a temporary halt to Trump’s ban on travelers coming to the US from seven predominantly Moslem countries:

“The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!”

When a US President rejects the authority of the Judicial branch of government and disrespects the federal judge who issued the ruling, we can clearly see that the country is being ruled by a tyrant.

Donald Trump is exactly the kind of President the Founding Fathers worked so hard to prevent from ever taking office. The remedy they provided in case such a tyrant does become President is Impeachment.

The sooner Donald Trump is removed from office, the sooner the United States can begin restoring democracy and the rule of law.
