Presidents, Vice Presidents and all members of the federal government—whether elected or hired—take an oath of office before beginning the job. The presidential oath states:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

The ACLU Just Said What We're All Thinking About Trump's Call to End Due Process for Migrants at the Border
After exploiting families of murder victims to create a false narrative that ignored actual crime statistics and was quickly debunked, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to propose another means of dealing with immigration: eliminate due process under the law.

Article II of the United States Constitution establishes the executive branch of the federal government. It also outlines the duties, responsibilities and powers of the president.
One of those powers is to pardon those who commit crimes against the United States. President Donald Trump has issued 5 pardons since assuming office in January 2017, but those few still drew some criticism for their motivation.
