Just 46 Minutes Ago — 45’s Implosion, By Tweet — On Muslim Bans One And Two Continued…

I’ll make very short work of this: Do read the earlier post today, and the one from Friday night, past.

Mr. Trump just declared by tweet that the amendments to the INA of 1965, passed by Congress and signed by then President Johnson — do. not. exist. That is, those amendments clearly state that the President does not have the power to restrict immigration based on “nationality” (they say the same about religion, and race — but tonight Mr. Trump recasts his order(s) in the form of country bans). As such, Mr. Trump commits himself, and publicly so, to a ban based on. . . nationality, when he bans a country. Here is the tweet, in full:

. . . .Donald J. Trump ‏Verified account @ realDonaldTrump 46 minutes ago. . . .

That’s right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won’t help us protect our people!. . . .

Mr. Trump has thus declared that he has the power to undo Acts of Congress, with a stroke of his pen (by simple executive order). He has no such power. [And that is if we simply ignore that the ends of his order are themselves unconstitutional establishments of disfavored religions.] He loses. 9-0, in the US Supreme Court, and soon. [11-0 or 12-0 overall, when the dust settles.] So much theater; so little of use — so little thought. So Trumpian.
