Trump facing opposition from all sides

Published in Blog on July 17, 2017 by Convention Of States Project

As conservatives praise Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court, President Trump is facing a tough battle with Senate Democrats to get his pick confirmed. 

But the Senate isn’t the only place of resistance in Washington.

As Fox News noted yesterday, the President has already had to deal with an acting attorney general who ignores executive orders, a Secret Service agent who won’t risk her life for the President and federal employees tweeting photos of crowds to embarrass the commander in chief. And these shows of defiance could be just the tip of an anti-Trump iceberg looming before the new administration.

Washington is clearly resistant to the kind of limited-government change Trump wants to put in place. Federal officials have grown accustomed to their place of power, and they won’t allow a freeze on regulations or an originalist Supreme Court justice without a fight.

That’s why a Convention of States is still necessary to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. Trump can make personnel changes and push policy, but only a Convention of States can implement the kind of structural change this country so desperately needs.

An Article V Convention of States has the power to propose constitutional amendments that restrict the power of the bureaucracy, guard against future harmful decisions by the Supreme Court, and ensure future Presidents stay within constitutional bounds.
