Is Donald Trump, a peewit, or a enemy of the Constitution? For many Americans the answer is in the eye of the beholder. The majority of Germans see Trump as a notorious Malefactor.
This ingenuity is how you can narrow bureaucratic rules to deal, in this country, often as a virtue. A world of rigid rules, the solution to prevent more serious problems, is hard to bear. An extreme example is Helmut Schmidt's decision, in the case of the storm flood in Hamburg 1962 German army was to use: at the time, a clear violation of the Constitution; in the meantime, the basic law has been changed. Compliance with the law and principles of strength apply, of course, as a virtue. A law-less world is a nightmare.
For his followers is Trump a Pfiffkus
Donald trump's followers consider him a crafty guy. Follow his presentation, the situation on the border with Mexico was unsustainable and a wall-creating remedy. You don't admire that he is not satisfied with the refusal of the Democrats in the Budget money for the wall schedule, and in breach of the law does not shrink back.
For days he threatens, the national declare a state of emergency in order to thanks to the powers allocated to the President and then to entrust the military with the construction. The White house is also considering another variant of the rule break: up to 13.9 billion dollars approved by Congress as disaster relief after hurricanes and forest fires in Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas and California, for the wall to reclassify.
ingenuity, or endangerment of the constitutional order? Both ways out of the political Blockade, the wall, the state budget and the Government would not halt only borderline. They endanger the basic pillars of the political system. Currently, there is no state of emergency endangering to the border with Mexico. He is an invention of Trumps. If the President gave made such Emergency powers, it would be a serious abuse of the rules for an exception condition.
The President is ignoring the most important right of Parliament
The reallocation of approved budget appropriations is in any other way a basic principle of democracy and separation of powers. The budget law lies with the Parliament, not the government. The deputies are set by the budget act, the purposes for which the government how much money to spend. Other uses are unlawful.
It would be an exaggeration to refer to Trump as a grave-digger of democracy, or to compare him with Hitler and the Reichstag fire in 1933: as a crucial step in the dictatorship. There are courts in the United States. The Democrats can check whether or not Trump Constitution is in accordance with.
Also in Europe, the threatening tendency to break the law
In the debate a fateful momentum has been reflected in some of the Western democracies. The understanding, on which the pillars of democracy and the rule of law are based, back – Governing as the Governed. Trump has no respect for laws and principles. He evaluated everything according to the usefulness to his concerns. Shockingly, follows him for a good part of the citizens in the motto "Anything goes".More about
