Actions by president challenged as in conflict with founding document
It’s no secret that President Obama and the U.S. Constitution have been at odds over the last eight years.
But while campaigning this week for Hillary Clinton, he let it slip that he, indeed, believes a president has the power to violate the Constitution.
He was in North Carolina, blasting Donald Trump for the 2005 video of the GOP candidate making remarks about women, reported Business Insider.
“If you disrespect women before you are elected president, you will disrespect women when you’re in office,” Obama said.
“Imagine what you’ll do when you actually have the power to violate the Constitution along those lines.”
