Worried about Trump? Then it’s time to limit executive authority

I have no brook with your argument that the executive needs to be restrained, but I don’t see how Trump is a worthy example. In the very few cases he’s asserted executive authority the result has been the diminishment of that authority, see immigration orders. In most cases however, he’s largely rolled back the reach of the executive. The only action I can think of that can be argued is the Syrian strike, but I don’t think there’s a strong case there for unique behavior by Trump. Do you have any examples?
