Regarding President Trump’s speech on clamping down on protests across the country, NBC Presidential Historian Jon Meacham says, “The president is drawing on a dictatorial vernacular, that’s where we are. I think that it’s an enormously tense moment not only in the obvious ways, but for the basic rule of law, the basic separation of powers, and the basic sovereignty of the people.”
