Due process hasn’t changed. Donald Trump should.
This opinion article written by Christine Embra was selected as a view from the left based on the following points made:
- Trump’s most recent comments on twitter illustrate how fundamentally he misunderstands the concept of due process.
- Due process refers to a legal pillar, ensuring fair trials, and does not apply to public opinion or employment status; citing due process has become an attempt to protect powerful individuals who stand accused of sexual misconduct without extending those same protections to the accusers.
- President Trump’s actions and comments show poor integrity; society would benefit greatly if, instead of hiding behind legal terms like due process, individuals ensured those guilty of misconduct are held responsible for their actions.
