to stand up to Trump
To the editor:
No American President has ever imposed his campaign agenda on the country by Presidential decree. It is not done that way.
After election, the President meets with the members of Congress from his party and asks for legislation to forward his initiatives. The members of Congress draft the legislation and prepare the appropriate bills. When the bills are passed by the Congress, the President signs them, and they become law.
The President cannot impeach the Congress. The Congress can impeach the President.
President Trump will continue to issue Presidential decrees until someone holds up a hand and says, "Stop! Enough!"
My question for Sen. Ron Johnson and Rep. Sean Duffy is: "What are you waiting for?"

And Melania Trump should never have worn that lovely sequined Michael Kors jacket to the joint session of Congress, according to several fashion insiders. With luck, it's an impeachable offense.
One wonders exactly what Trump actions Mr. Youngstrum is referring to. Building the wall? For starters, he could Google the Simpson-Mazolli Act, which Reagan complied with and Democrats then weaseled out on. And of course there is the Secure Fence Act of the George W. years, should he need more evidence.

Editor The facts say President Obama issued more executive orders in his first twelve days than President Trump. Guess we don't get our "news" from the same source. The fact that the Democrats didn't have the courtesy to stand for the President of the United States of America at his address to congress tells all.
