Trump’s unbroken pattern of disdain for the rule of law

Joan Biskupic of CNN –

Since his early days in office, Trump has scorned legal norms and the men and women who carry them out. He publicly mocked federal judges, derided the criminal justice system as a “laughingstock” and used his first presidential pardon on Sheriff Joe Arpaio, convicted of criminal contempt.

He is in a wholly different category for the modern presidency, disregarding the rule of law and delegitimizing judges and others appointed to safeguard the system.
