10. Being a gangster is a symptom of the problem

As I see it there are 4 qualifications required by the constitution to be President.

1) must be over 35
2) must be born in US and be a resident for at least 14 years
3) must be elected by the electoral college (or congress or be VP and assume on death or incapacity of POTUS)
4) must be sworn in using oath as published in constitution.

Clearly, Trump either did not understand the plain meaning of the oath he took or he had his fingers crossed behind his back at the time. Reciting the words without understanding them is just making noise... it does not create a binding 'contract'.

So... is 3 out of 4 good enough?

If he did not take or did not have any intention of abiding by the oath he took does that mean that all of his decrees and appointments can be considered null and void?
