Well, considering his opinion of the Constitution, none.

Donald Trump slams 'archaic' US constitution that is
'really bad' for the country

Ben Kentish

Donald Trump has blamed the US constitution for the problems he has encountered during his first 100 days in office.

In an interview with Fox News to mark the milestone, the Republican called the system of checks and balances on power “archaic”.

“It’s a very rough system,” he said. “It’s an archaic system … It’s really a bad thing for the country.”

It comes after a torrid few months in which Mr Trump has faced a series of setbacks and embarrassments.

His introduction of a travel ban on immigration from seven mainly Muslim countries was struck down by the courts, forcing him to put forward an amended version.

Weeks later, his healthcare bill was withdrawn after it failed to secure sufficient backing from Republican senators.

Those mishaps contributed to a sense of chaos that has seen Mr Trump’s popularity fall to unprecedented lows for a US president at this stage of their term. Mr Trump’s current ratings hover around 40 per cent; at the same point in his presidency, Barack Obama was on nearly 65 per cent.
