The current president’s behavior reveals both ignorance of and disdain for the rule of law. Trump’s statements reveal his authoritarian vision of the presidency, and his actions reveal his contempt for these founding documents. Consider his recent pardon of the lawbreaking former Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio, who was found guilty of violating the constitutional rights of citizens by using racial profiling to jail Latinos — who died at an alarming rate while incarcerated. Arpaio’s actions and Trump’s pardon are flagrant attacks on citizens’ rights and protections.
