Let me be very clear: We have no choice but to build a powerful wall or steel barrier.
If we don’t get a fair deal from Congress, the government will either shut down on February 15th, again, or I will use the powers afforded to me under the laws and the Constitution of the United States to address this emergency.

The key difference between a democracy and a republic lies in the limits placed on government by the law, which has implications for minority rights.

The key difference between a democracy and a republic lies in the limits placed on government by the law, which has implications for minority rights.

Both forms of government tend to use a representational system — i.e., citizens vote to elect politicians to represent their interests and form the government.

In a republic, a constitution or charter of rights protects certain inalienable rights that cannot be taken away by the government, even if it has been elected by a majority of voters.

In a “pure democracy,” the majority is not restrained in this way and can impose its will on the minority.
