Right behind him are the Republicans who allow him to do so without consequence. Trump has hogtied the House and Senate to the point that they appear ineffectual. Actually, they ARE ineffectual.
Though I agree that voting him and his enablers out of office is a solution, I fear we don't have the time. Trump's petulance and ego remain unchecked. He makes us look like stooges as he rips apart all the qualities we thought we stood for.
I think he laughs all the way to the bank as our country continues to line his pockets. Every Trump business has profited from his continued use of his private properties. What's happening to our country is not funny. It's serious.
He's symptomatic of what's been wrong with your country for a ling time.
Really, Putin/MSB, Saud, Israel/IDF/Israeli oligarcs nd the Koch Bros/US oligarcs et al just exploited an open weakness in the US political system; money & greed, people's base level instincts.
The US system is deliberately designed to allow powerful executive privilege with multiple ways to override the judiciary and the houses. That's why you're in this mess.
Our system is similarly flawed and well, look what Boris Karloff has just done? He can simply ignore the houses and the judiciary too..

He'll just prorogue a second time, or simply wait til Oct 14th to recall parliament; meaning we'll miss the deadline if you factor in GE timings (2 week delay).
