The uniqueness of Donald Trump most saliently manifests itself in this way: By law, pattern and constitutional framework, the president of the United States largely sits above the law, and in some fundamental ways cannot even be checked by Congress. Instead, what has historically been the case is the very character, sensibility and morality of the chief executive confining him within a particular behavioral boundary. It is here that Trump is proving himself to be an aberration. Consistently, he has shown that he has very few if any qualms and will stress-test every custom and tradition. What then happens when the norms, not strict laws, that have guided the republic for over two centuries are suddenly done away with by a president with the power to do so? It is here that I wonder if he has displayed the vulnerability and flaw of the American system and the need for reform, or whether a mere doing away with him from the office will bring back a return to custom by a more normal person.
