Trump has a lawsuit filed against him for violating ethics laws for taking money from foreign governments, should it be possible to file suit against the President of the United States?

  • Yes it should be possible to file suits against the President of the United States.

    The US and many other democracies pride themselves on not being a "dictatorship". Being able to file suits against the president should be possible as it helps reduce corruption and keep presidents from becoming too powerful. It should be seen as a liberty to be able to challange the president if he is seen abusing his power.

  • Yes, it should be possible to file suit against the President

    The President of the U.S. should not be above the law and it should be possible to file suit against him/her. The lawsuit against Trump was filed prior to him taking office and is another case of his shady dealings with foreign governments. It may take years to undercover all the suspicious business dealings related to Trump.

  • He's a citizen, just like the rest of us

    Yes, he holds the highest public office but that does not make him any less liable for acts of stupidity, just like regular Joe Citizen. He is not excused from adhering to the law of the land, like the rest of us. And let's be honest, Trump is more than used to being dragged into court.

  • Conflicts of interest.

    Saying that Donald Trump should be able to receive money from foreign governments and lead his own government is ridiculous and morally wrong. If this is not a terrifying concept to you it should be as Donald Trump could be financially inclined to go against the interests of the U.S People in favour of another nation or group, the result of this is likely to be something along the lines of harmful trade agreements or even in the worst case, he could get the U.S. involved in a trade war.

  • Yes, presidents should.

    Presidents should be able to have law suits filed against them. No one above the law of the land. Not even the president. Whether this is brought from a person, a group, or one of the branches of the government, it should be possible. Just like the common people, there are consequences for actions.

  • The President Should Be Subject to the Law Too

    The President should be subject to the law no less than any other regular American citizen. If Trump has truly committed crimes which go against the law, then he should have to be tried in court, and maybe even face the consequences of his crimes. The president should not be exempt from the law.

  • Yes, it should be legal to sue the President of the United States

    I don't think it's very ethical for the United States President to take money from foreign governments. First of all, Donald Trump is one of the wealthiest persons in the country, so there's no reason he would need any big donors, let alone donors from outside the US. I could understand someone, who is not a political leader, just the average joe, accepting donors from other countries on their GoFundMe accounts, but not for President. The country that donated to Trump may want favors in return. They may assume that we will help them in their unethical practices.

  • So the Clinton Foundation does not exist, I take it?

    It should be possible to file suit against the President, but then you deserve all the scrutiny and pain that will invariably result. However, the opinion is biased because someone filed a lawsuit over him taking foreign money.

    I take it Crooked Hillary would get a free pass in this exact situation, right? Right? Anyone?
