Jennifer Taub in ",Trumps thumbing his nose at the law on citizenship," depicts Trump as a heartless and careless man for wanting to take away the birthright citizenship that children born in the United States have. He should not be able to do this because he can't violate the constitution when the constitution gives him his powers as president, and if he was able to do this than what is the point of having the three branches of government when one branch has all of the power. Although adjusting this rule might not be a terrible idea, Trump himself just can't get rid of it.

In the peculiarly well-supported U.S. News report written by Liz Mair, her claim of Donald Trump's political success in his first year of presidency is elucidated to be far less outrageous than the left wing has made it out to be. In terms of staying true to his promises made before being elected, he has not whole-heartedly failed, and Mair includes hard-to-deny details and evidence regarding tax-cuts and the current immigration policy to prove his adherence to said plans and obligations. His vows to protect DREAMERS-related policies, uphold traditional republican values, and wisely utilize GOP donations are in question, as well as their likeliness of being fulfilled, and Mair doesn't veer away from acknowledging these flaws. The intent behind this editorial wasn't to disregard the left's thoughts and concerns, but rather shine a pocket of light onto his actions while justifying a select few.
