'Mr. Trump treats the Constitution in terms of real estate law — ways to get around legal requirements rather than enforcing and promoting them. 'He has showed disdain for the separation of powers by attacking the federal judiciary and individual judges who have ruled against him, & made a mockery of the emoluments clause by refusing to divest his tangled business empire and profiting openly off his presidency.
