But I could mention how you're desperate to denfend Trump and are looking for any and all loopholes real or imagined to try a justify his unconstitutional actions. And have avoided the main issue, and dodged the clear analogies presented in areas that you Would NOT want the same justifications applied.
No, the SCOTUS excerpt cited has nothing to do with the President's authority to act in the interest of national security. It is absurd to claim a case dealing with a state's attempt to rewrite mortgage contracts after the fact is somehow defining a so-called universal principle is nothing but unsupported opinion. But hey, the stubborn repetition of naked opinion accompanied by hysteria. Despite repeated evidence of Congress granting the President authority to impose tariffs , not declare new law, the only response is bluster about the Constitution, speculative hypotheticals, and unrelated SCOTUS findings.
