President Donald Trump is not a man you want to cross, and he’s proven that time and time again. However, some people still haven’t gotten the message. Most recently proving that to be the case is acting Attorney General Sally Yates who recently broke the law to aggressively defy Trump’s executive order on immigration – and it was a decision that she would eventually regret.
Government officials are always trying to make their mark, but some seem to have forgotten that there’s a new boss in town. Unlike the previous president who was spineless to the core, Trump is a man that is draining the swamp in Washington, D.C. and starting to rebuild so our government functions the way it should — for the people.
Unfortunately for anyone who thinks they’re going to fight against this reality, they have another thing coming. In fact, Attorney General Sally Yates thought she would get away with defying Trump when she ordered Justice Department lawyers to stop defending the executive order in an aggressive act of defiance.
Yates likely came to immediately regret her decision when she was fired on the spot. “The acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States,” the White House press secretary’s office said in a statement.
JUST IN: Stephen Miller called acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ refusal to defend President Donald J. Trump’s refugee order a "betrayal of her office" and said she is "being replaced with somebody who will enforce the laws of the United States." http://bit.ly/2kldskg

Fox 10 reports that “Trump named Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve in Yates’ place until Sen. Jeff Sessions, his permanent pick for the position, is confirmed by the Senate.” It just goes to show that you really can’t fix stupid, and when it comes down to it, no one is above the law under our current president.
Donald Trump implemented a temporary immigration policy involving travel from only seven countries for just 90 days so that our intelligence communities can better vet those crossing our borders. Those in violation of the law will have consequences – even if you hold the highest position in the justice department.
Of course, this is a far cry from Barack Obama’s administration where lawlessness and judicial bias was frequently seen running rampant. Under Trump, if you break the law, you will pay. That’s what our justice system calls for, and that’s the way it should be, no matter your position. It’s nice to have a man in office who respects the law again – that is unless you’re Ms. Yates.
