Because if he would be successful, that would open the door to change all of the things that are wrong with the constitution as written, like the 2nd amendment and guns, the 3rd amendment which isn't even applicable, the fact that the word people is used more than the word citizen, that there is no defined skill sets for being potus, no language requirements, no voting requirements, etc.

So please trump, go ahead and do your damndest to change the constitution

Nobody has been as hard on the constitution as the GOP the last decade... example McConnell deciding Obama wouldn't have a supreme court appointment.

There are very specific ways of changing the Constitution. Executive order is not one of them. If we accept this proposal, the Constitution becomes meaningless as every President would have the same power.

There's a reason the founders required super majorities to change the document. It requires agreement by the American people through their States, not the fortunes or misapprehensions of a particular administration.
