"I am a naturalized American;I took the oath to “support and defend the Constitution and laws of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” This column about contempt amounts, in a way, to fulfillment of that oath for there is a treacherous contempt for the Constitution. Trump has attacked the freedom of the press , and the independence of the judiciary. His reckless travel ban raised issues of due process and religious discrimination." There is "the utter contempt that he has shown for the State Dep't. Some 70,000 American patriots across the globe, dedicated to the American idea as a force for good in the world, have been cast adrift. America has no foreign policy so nobody is needed to articulate it. All we have are the feverish zigzags of the president,who thinks NATO is obsolete one day and glorious the next. There is no governing idea, only transactional hollowness."
