Dereliction of duty

On inauguration day, President Trump took the oath of office, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

In my opinion President Trump has not protected and defended our nation and the Constitution which constitutes a dereliction of duty.

His administration has not implemented sanctions, which were passed by Congress, against Russia.

These sanctions were a response to cyberattacks on our election process.

He has put his business interests ahead of the nations interest by violating the foreignemoluments clause of the constitution.

The evidence is also mounting that President Trump and his minions colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 election.

This could be an act of treason. He has even proposed the seizure of potentially dangerous individuals guns without due process of law.

As each day unfolds he proves that he does not have the capacity or will to lead our country.

The oath of office and rule of law means little to President Trump.

When is Congress, controlled by the Republican Party, going to wake up and take action for the sake of our Constitution and form of government?

The time has come for the people of America to vote anyone that empowered and supported this president out of office.
