Trump has demonstrated a pattern of behavior amounting to advocating violence, undercutting equal protection, and, as a result, failing basic Constitutional duties.
- When Trump gave cover to the neo-Nazis who rioted in Charlottesville and murdered a protester, he violated his obligation to protect the citizenry against domestic violence.
- When Trump encouraged police officers to rough up people they have under arrest, he violated his obligation to oversee faithful execution of the laws.
- When Trump shared anti-Muslim content on Twitter, he violated his obligation to uphold equal protection of the laws.
- This represents a pattern of disregard for some of the president’s basic responsibilities as defined by the Constitution.
