What did Donald Trump do today?

He said that the Constitution gives him the power to do anything he wants.

Trump gave a speech to teenagers today in which he said, "I have an Article 2 where I have the right to do whatever I want as president."

In the real world, Article II of the United States Constitution says no such thing.

Why does this matter?

  • Trump may genuinely believe the president isn't subject to the rule of law.
