Every time a court/judge/jury convicts someone, they turn a citizen into a slave (someone removed of their freedoms and rights) who becomes the property of the state. Then, every remaining American citizen (those still possessing their civil rights and freedoms) is a slaveholder/owner by nature of their participation as members of the state. On top of this, we publicly teach our children, and seem to believe it ourselves, that the 13th Amendment abolished slavery, making us all fools. If we cannot clean up our own act, there is no reason to expect Trump or anyone else to clean up theirs. Constitution of United States of America 1789 (rev. 1992) Amendment XIII Section 1 "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." Section 2 "Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."
