Harpootlian argues that President Elect Donald Trump's treatment of facts throughout the campaign presents cause for concern. Specifically, Harpootlian argues that the courtroom is designed to rely on evidence. Harpootlian worries that this reliance is threatened by the fact that President Trump flouted and ignored evidence which was unfavorable towards him. Harpootlian fears a similar disregard for evidence in favor of results driven decisions taking root in the courtroom.
