Apparently it was news to him.
According to an Associate Press Dispatch published in today’s Dallas Morning News, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said “America’s founding fathers had created three co-equal branches of government with checks and balances, but with Trump as president, that was now ‘eroding.’”
It seems to me that is akin to stating that the moon is starting to become a dry and desolate place.
Maybe we need a President Trump to help the Congress of the United States find its backbone which it has lost piece by piece over several administrations. I pray the cure is not worse than the disease.
