An Open Letter To President Trump 

Mr. President:

Approximately one month ago, you took an oath that you would “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of [your] ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”. A man’s word is his bond. I expect you to live up to your commitment. 

When the Bill of Rights (a part of Constitution)  says 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; it is your job to nor allow Congress to  make laws banning any religion. It is also your job not to encourage such laws. Christianity cannot be our national religion. Islam can not be prevented, nor can any other religion. You took an oath to do this. I expect you to do it.

When the Constitution says, there shall be no “abridging the freedom of speech”, calling people ‘professional protesters”, saying we should “punch people in the mouth” for speaking up, does just that. It is unconstitutional to do such things. You and members of Congress who support such actions must stop doing that. You (and they) gave their word.

or of the press; railing against the press as “the opposition party”, refusing to answer questions asked by the press and so on is Unconstitutional. You must stop this from occurring. I don’t care if you like the press or not. You took an oath to protect freedom of the press. That is your job. Please do it.

 or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, attacking people who are peacefully protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline — or any other site — is  Unconstitutional . You should not encourage this, nor let that happen, nor — in fact — order it to happen.

and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. when people in Congress tell another member of Congress to stop talking, you are required to defend her. When a cause of Hispanics is prevented from meeting with your administration, it is your job to prevent that from happening. You, in order to faithfully execute your office, must prevent that

This is what you swore to do. This is what the President does — protects the Constitution. If you want the authority the office has, this is your responsibility. Do your job, or lose your job!  

Resisting with peace,
John Madsen-Bibeau, US citizen
