Victor Davis Hanson: Trump Is The "Protector And Guarantor" Of The Constitution; "Enforcer Of Traditions And Protocols"

|

Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson said Thursday that President Trump is serving as the "enforcer of traditions and protocols that have gone back to the 19th Century."

"I think the point is they don't have confidence in their message, that it will resonate with 51 percent of the population. At least they seem that way, so they want to change the system rather than work within the system. That won't yield the results that they demand," Hanson said of Democrats on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."

"He has been the victim of the weaponization of the FBI, CIA, DOJ... politicizing impeachment... He has to strike back and say he's not going to pack the court, he's not going to repeal the electoral college, that's what you want to do. You want to let 16 year olds and felons to vote."


"But in this next 90 days, I'm going to get task forces to make sure the Postal Service is swift, efficient -- and with balloting I'm going to get more polling stations available so we can social-distance. We're not going to accommodate these crises of virus, lockdown, rioting, recession.

"He doesn't need to alter the system because that's a natural vote for the Republican Party in general and for him in particular," Hanson added. "He's been a victim of people who tried to distort these constitutional frameworks. He's got to remind everybody that he's the protector and the guarantor of it."
