Trump’s latest behavior reveals dictatorial mindset

After many Democrats failed to applaud or show other support during his January 2018 State of the Union speech, Trump called them “treasonous.”

His statement is what we’d expect from a dictator, not the president of a constitutional democracy with freedom of expression.

We could expect North Korea’s leader to denounce people who don’t praise him.

Trump keeps showing that he thinks of himself as a dictator who must dominate his subjects.

Abuses began during the 2016 presidential campaign, and the abuses have been escalating.

They will continue until the American people force Trump out of office through impeachment or the Constitution’s 25th Amendment.

We dare not wait.
