Karlan says Trump is not a king because of the Constitution

Pamela Karlan of Stanford Law School explained what makes President Trump different from a king during her testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee asked Karlan what characteristics of kings influenced the Founding Fathers in shaping the Constitution. “Kings could do no wrong because the king’s word was law,” Karlan told the Democrat from Texas. “And, contrary to what President Trump has said, Article 2 does not give him the power to do anything he wants.” She added an example: “While the president can name his son Barron, he can’t actually make him a baron.”
