Former President Donald Trump and his lawyers are advocating for presidential immunity from criminal prosecution, with Trump emphasizing this point in a social media post.

This stance is concerning as it suggests a desire for unchecked power, akin to an autocrat.

Trump wrote, “A president of the United States must have full immunity, without which it would be impossible for him/her to properly function.”

“Any mistake, even if well intended, would be met with almost certain indictment by the opposing party at term end. Even events that ‘cross the line’ must fall under total immunity, or it will be years of trauma trying to determine good from bad,” he continued.

Trump’s argument for complete immunity, even for actions that “cross the line,” mirrors the controversial concept of qualified immunity for police officers.

“You can’t stop police from doing the job of strong & effective crime prevention because you want to guard against the occasional ‘rogue cop’ or ‘bad apple,’” wrote the former president.

“Sometimes you just have to live with ‘great but slightly imperfect.’ All presidents must have complete & total presidential immunity, or the authority & decisiveness of a president of the United States will be stripped & gone forever. Hopefully this will be an easy decision. God bless the Supreme Court!” he exclaimed.

This parallels his vision of the presidency as an absolute rule rather than a position bound by the rule of law in a democratic society.

The open promotion of such authoritarian views is significant and raises concerns about the implications for his followers and the democratic process.
