The Greatest Constitutional Crisis Of Trump's Presidency

The greatest constitutional crisis of Trump's presidency is the overreach of the federal judiciary, manifested first in the various lower court orders attempting to stymie the President's orders on immigration, and now, most seriously, by judges attempting to bypass the President to run the military and the Department of Defense from the federal bench.
