President Trump, Please Read the Constitution (comments by Corey Brettschneider)

November 11, 2017 The New York Times

Corey Brettschneider, professor of political science,  was quoted in a New York Times editorial that called to task President Donald Trump ignorance of the Constitution. “His idea of the presidency is, he was elected and he can do whatever he wants. Presidents usually regard the oath as a set of legally binding principles that they abide by.”
