'I am here to elect a president, not a king'


Trump and his supporters treat his ascendancy to President of the United States as if he is to be anointed a King of a monarchy. Among many problems a President Trump brings to the White House, this is one of them.

"A Republican member of the Electoral College from Texas said Monday that he won't cast one of his state's 38 electoral votes for Donald Trump because 'I am here to elect a president, not a king.'

"Dallas paramedic Chris Suprun previously indicated he would support Trump. But he now says the president-elect's postelection attacks on the First Amendment and the country's electoral process, as well as the billionaire businessman's continued promotion of his brand and business interests overseas, changed his mind."
