Letter: It’s shameful for Trump to call opponents’ actions treasonous

It’s shameful for Trump to call opponents’ actions treasonous

If our self-proclaimed genius president of the United States would have read our Constitution or have had it explained to him, he might realize that his presence is not required to deliver the State of the Union message.

Section 3 of Article II of the U.S. Constitution states that the president should, from time to time, give Congress information on the State of the Union. Nowhere is it written that he must appear before Congress to deliver his message in person.

Had our president informed himself on what he is required to do, he might have spared himself looking out on an audience not terribly pleased with what he was saying. And perhaps the audience would have been spared listening to him. To call an audience treasonous is shameful in the least.
