It is critically important that the leader of our country understands how our government functions. It seems obvious to me that Donald Trump doesn't. He seems to think he has the power of an absolute ruler or dictator. Both major political parties need to see this as a real threat to our democracy. If he permitted to continue chipping away and breaking down our checks and balances system, he will get what he is seeking. His failure to recognize that he can't arbitrarily mandate anything he wants shows his ignorance. He must be held accountable for his actions. This is not the time for partisan politics. Everyone must stand up against him letting him know he is but one of the three branches. I also believe it is proper for him to be reprimanded regarding his inappropriate posturing and lack of respect for other world leaders, elected officials, judges and people whom he doesn't like.
