I doubt if Trump has ever read the Constitution. I studied it and taught if for 30 years, I feel that Trump doesn't realize that when the framers set it up, they started with what they considered the most important branch, the legislature. This was to be 2 houses made up of regular citizens. Then they set up the executive branch and finally the court system. The framers feared a dictator; they had just fought a war of independence from George III.
Trump seems to think he has the right to act like a dictator. He bypasses Congress and signs executive orders. He seems at times to almost be at war with the rest of the government. The framers pictured the 3 branches of our government as being compatible, not at odds with each other.
Trump needs to read and understand the document. His time in office will be calmer.
