Texas Gov. Greg Abbott believes President Obama is breaking the three branches of government.
ABBOTT: There’s only one body of the three branches of government that can write the law and that is Congress. Congress has taken up the vote on this transgender issue on several occasions and rejected it every single time. We have a president who decided, well if Congress is not going to pass the law, he is going to impose the law. And so the president is turning the Constitution on its head.

Abbott says the country is at a precarious tipping point.
ABBOTT: It’s happening now, I believe, because we are in the waning months of the Obama presidency and he’s trying to cram down as many parts of his liberal agenda on the United States of America as he possibly can. And people need to come to grips with this, and that is, we are at a constitutional tipping point in the United States of America. Hillary [Clinton] is nothing more than an extension of the Obama agenda – if not worse, because she’s threatened to expand Obamacare, she’s threatened to keep our border completely insecure and the Supreme Court may be more pivotal than any other issue in this presidential election. If Hillary is elected, it will lead to America taking a left turn from which we may not be able to return.
