On the Wednesday edition of Fox News Channel’s legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano’s “Judge Napolitano’s Chambers,” Napolitano contacted President Donald Trump must uphold the Constitution, not “disparage” it.
Napolitano said, the emoluments stipulation, “is a cause in the Constitution that prohibits federal officeholders from receiving anything of worth from foreign government.”
Going over Trump canceling holding the G7 top at one of his golf resorts, Napolitano stated, “He changed his mind and said we will hold this conference elsewhere due to the fact that I do not require this headache however in the process of stating that he described the emoluments clause in the Constitution as phony.”
He included, “It’s really uncommon and largely unprecedented for the president of the United States who took an oath to protect, secure and protect the Constitution to disparage part of it. If he can disparage it, can he ignore it? Can the president of the United States who took the oath to implement the Constitution impose only the parts he likes and disregard the parts he dislikes? The response is no. The governmental oath requires him to be devoted about enforcement.”
He concluded, “When a president of the United States disparages a part of the Constitution, what does that tell us about how seriously he takes his oath.”
