Trump Fires Acting Attorney General



President Donald Trump has just done an action which put him on the national spotlight in regards to fame. He "fired" the acting Attorney General Sally Yates.  After Trump signed the executive order which mandated the extreme vetting of individuals from countries the Obama administrated listed as harboring terrorists, Yates refused to defend the order.  Sally Yates was a left over appointment from the Obama era. Naturally, she thinks like Obama and has disregard for the law as was the case with previous attorney generals under Obama who refused to follow the law.

Trump's White House called Yates' action a "betrayal" and immediately sought to remove her. The decision is being applauded by those who voted for Trump and those generally on the right of the political spectrum. Attorney generals are supposed to uphold and defend the law, not cherry pick which ones to uphold and defend. Trump's action, I believe, was a good one. We cannot have attorneys working for the people who will only defend laws that agree with their bias. This is a dangerous precedent.
