President Donald Trump may not seem to have much in common with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, but Trump's autocratic tendencies are becoming more apparent by the day.Trump is taking direct aim at an essential concept: that the president can be held accountable to the citizens.The furor over Trump's monarchical concept of the presidency erupted recently when The New York Times exposed letters that the president's lawyers had written to U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the investigation into issues related to obstruction of justice and possible collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and Russia.Of course, those who claim such authority, including Trump, hasten to insist that there will be no reason to use it. Trump's lawyers have argued that his constitutional powers extend even further. They claim, for example, that the president can end the Mueller investigation at any time and for any reason.
