1. Please help me to write an answer with 4-5 sentences on the following question and please read these 2 links:
On Friday, June 26, 2020, President Trump issued Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues and Combating Recent Criminal Violence. The Order protects public monuments, memorials, and statues.
The Order further seeks to protect state and local monuments. However, under our system of federalism, defacing a state or local monument would be a violation of state or local law. Therefore, federal law enforcement cannot enforce such a violation of law.
In order for the president to ensure state and local monuments are also protected, he is directing officials to consider holding back funding and grants.
Although the president is well-intended on protecting all monuments, memorials, and statues, do you think the president is overstepping his executive powers by directing officials to consider holding back federal funding and grants? Explain.
