Journalists Need to Keep in Mind that Donald Trump Didn’t Win a Mandate for Anything
by Robert Brent Toplin
Commentators in the print and video media often complain about President Donald Trump’s aggressive actions regarding immigration, tariffs, health care, climate change, guns, the Iran nuclear agreement, and other controversial topics, but they recognize that he won the election. Reluctantly, they acknowledge that Trump has a mandate to take strong positions on the issues. But they are wrong.

Pundits and politicians should refrain from treating the 2016 election as evidence of public approval for extraordinary exercises in presidential power.

Treason against the United States is defined in Article III of the Constitution as “levying war against [the United States], or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” Cleaving to, or joining an enemy, as President Donald J. Trump did today, and in the past, is treason. Pure and simple.

Have we have become a fearful country “measured” by our relationship to weapons and guns? There is a connection between our reliance on wars abroad and guns at home. This is reflected in our active or passive support of the militarization of our youth and violence at home. The war mentality has not and will not secure our happiness. It blinds us to the common good of humanity. Is this our legacy for children?

Americans like to recycle and China wanted the materials to feed their manufacturing base. However, beginning in 2013, China began to make a series of policies shifts to reduce the amount and types of recyclable materials into their country.
