Donald Trump is a serious threat to the civil liberties of Americans.  I doubt he has ever read our constitution.  Trump is specifically a threat to due process of law and equal protection of the law.  Although he denies being anti-black and anti-Muslim, his policies, statements and the court rulings against his policies suggest otherwise (as will be discussed in this blog later).

  His over-the top rantings on the media should give.  He has called the media “the enemy of the people.”

This was also Richard Nixon’s attitude toward the media whose reporting ultimately lead to his resignation.

Most of his executive orders regarding immigration have been found unconstitutional by the courts.   The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear one of these cases next year.

He seems to be a strong supporter of freedom of religion and the Second Amendment. Like many of the far-right the support for freedom of religion is for the ‘evangelical’ version only and only when that can be used as a tool to try to block gay marriage, discrimination against LGBT’s.

He has proposed or done nothing to support Second Amendment freedoms  Talk is cheap.. Where is his bill to enact federal nationwide concealed carry license reciprocity? Former Nixon Attorney General John Mitchell (who served prison time) said “Watch what we do, not what we say.


The ACLU present an analysis of Trump’s policy positions and labels him a “One-Man Constitutional Crisis.”
