This is NOT acceptable!
These are our Presidents words: During an interview with Fox News to discuss his first 100 days as president, Trump denounced the constitutional system of checks and balances as “archaic.”
“It’s a very rough system. It’s an archaic system,” Trump said. “It’s really a bad thing for the country.”
And then his chief of staff tells Fox News "...White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus told ABC on Sunday that the president is thinking about amending or even abolishing the First Amendment to stifle what they consider to be unfair media criticism."
The president can propose an amendment to congress. 2/3rd vote to pass and submit to the states for ratification. Any such action must be averted in congress and NEVER make it to the states. Just so we recognize the underlying threat to our way of governance. Thus stand against the 1st amendment and our constitution has Not been publicly voiced by any president in the history of our country.
This goes too far! I am outraged! This is a position you would expect from a dictatorship. Suppression of free speech is the first thing that was done by Lenin, Stalin, Khomeini, Mao, PolPot and other despots in history. This WILL NOT happen in the United States of America!
