When have Trump statements and tweets crossed the line from political speech to illegal speech?

So often, we argue about speech and we have an aggressive user of speech (for many purposes) in the White House.

Please quote your example of Trump statements and tweets that cross the line and may be subject to legal action once he leaves his current job.

This is a tricky and complex topic. Start with the Mueller report if you wish.

I just cannot state strongly enough how totally dishonest much of the Media is. Truth doesn’t matter to them, they only have their hatred & agenda. This includes fake books, which come out about me all the time, always anonymous sources, and are pure fiction. Enemy of the People!
