11. Treatment of the Judiciary
Trump’s behavior towards the Judiciary has been unhinged and unprecedented, especially when it came to court rulings on his travel ban. He acted out by calling federal judges with lifetime tenure under the Constitution “so-called” judges. The lawyers representing President Trump in court have denied the authority of federal courts to review his executive orders for constitutionality. He has also said that “the whole world will soon see” that Donald Trump’s actions “will not be questioned.” While Trump hasn’t instructed others to defy court orders (yet), it’s not difficult to see that the time will come when he chooses to take matters into his own hands and create a constitutional crisis.
