Trump has stated plainly that he wants to ban Muslims from entering the United States and hopes to persecute Muslim citizens, people of Hispanic descent, and other minority communities within America. This means he’s ready to shred the Bill of Rights.
Trump has said he wants to roll back the freedom of the press and punish women for making choices about their own bodies. This means he’s hostile to the First Amendment, the 14th Amendment, and the rule of law.
Trump has spoken openly, on national television, about his intention to jail Hillary Clinton. This means he respects neither due process nor democracy itself.
As a newspaper in deep-red Utah put it, Trump’s heedless bullying and ignorant amorality reveal “the essence of a despot.”
