The U.S. is now a dictatorship. The president has abused his executive privilege to circumvent the legislature in order to make law. The legislature is the body of our government whose sole purpose is to make law. The president is not supposed to be a lawmaker. When a president issues executive orders that are so divisive, he becomes a tyrant. When a president issues executive orders that contradict our Constitution he swore to uphold and protect, he becomes a tyrant. What next? Will he decide to negate our First Amendment rights of free speech because he doesn’t like Republican criticism?

Responsible Republican members of Congress must file suit in our U.S. Supreme Court to block these contentious orders and prevent our president from changing our country from a democratic republic to a dictatorship.
