A few days ago, the billionaire stated that being president is harder than he thought, and reality endorses his opinion.
Suffix to tell, among many, two close examples to demonstrate it.
Attorneys General Brian Frosh of Maryland and Karl Racine of the District of Columbia sued him for accepting money from foreign governments.
Those incomes came from businesses still linked to the head of the White House.
During a press conference in Washington, both prosecutors stated that Trump “flagrantly violated constitutional provisions against money influence from domestic or foreign interests.
Thus wrote El Nuevo Herald on Monday, those officials consider that never before a president of the U.S. had kept such big links with economic interests of the country.
Something that according to the newspaper from Florida “jeopardizes democracy”.
Frosh, Maryland Attorney General, assured he trusts that tribunals or the Supreme Court set a precedent ordering Trump to disassociate from his businesses.
Attorneys generals manage to say he is violating clauses of the federal Constitution.
Reason? Because governments like Saudi Arabia “sweeten” their relations with the White House by spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in president’s facilities, such as the Trump International Hotel.
If this were not enough, also on Monday, Spanish news agency EFE reported that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Atlantastruck the head of state another sensitive blow.
What was it about? It refused to reinstate the ban encouraged by Trump last March on the entry into US territory of refugees and citizens from 6 mostly-Muslim nations.
So, the ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit benefits those who reject the move and imposes further pressure on the Supreme Court.
In the decision, which text comprises 86 pages, the judges state:
“Immigration, even for a President is not an individual show. The president’s authority is subject to certain statuary and constitutional restrictions”.
“We conclude that the president, in issuing this executive order, exceeded the scope of the authority delegated to him by Congress”.
So, the almighty businessman from New York has to yield to certain realities of the very complex world around.
