…the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.
Will not be questioned.
That’s jackboots on the streets kinda talk. Chilling.
In a democracy, everything said by any politician should always be questioned. Telling the press and the judiciary that they’re not allowed to question whether a politician is exercising his powers in a prudent and constitutional fashion is not the act of someone who believes in democracy. It is the act of someone who believes in tyranny.
