Re: Niels W. Frenzen

Niels Frenzen was quoted on how federal courts weigh the content of President Donald Trump's tweets. “We’ve never had a president tweeting like this,” Frenzen said. “You have these extreme public statements that are shedding light on the motivation of the president in regard to why he is directing Cabinet secretaries to engage in these actions. The courts are saying these are fair game.”
