Trump Says Freedom of the Press Must Go Because He’s ‘Not Like Other People’ By  on Sat, Feb 27th, 2016 at 8:00 am “With me, they’re not protected, because I’m not like other people...We’re gonna...have people sue you like you never get sued before.
Let’s look at his argument. As a reminder, the First Amendment reads, in its entirety: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Yet here is what Trump claimed: “One of the things I’m gonna do, and this is only gonna make it tougher for me, and I’ve never said this before, but one of the things I’m gonna do if I win… is I’m gonna open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money. We’re gonna open up those libel laws.
