Donald Trump is using the power of the presidency to go after anyone who dares criticize him. This is what dictators do. As President of the United States he swore an oath of office to uphold the Constitution which guarantees free speech and free press. He is in violation of that oath many times over, not just with this incident and his ongoing rhetoric, but also with the arrests of journalists who covered his inauguration.
After University of Las Vegas assistant professor Tessa Winkelmann warned that Trump’s angry words “encourage violence,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders urged the university to investigate her.
If a college professor doesn’t have the right to criticize a president, we’re further along the road to despotism than I had imagined. Where are the conservatives who have been defending free speech on college campuses?
