Ronald Reagan's daughter, in a new op-ed, writes that her father would be "appalled" by President Trump's presidency.

Patti Davis reflects on her father's "love for America" in The Washington Post ahead of the anniversary of his death, and what he would think of the nation today.

"He would be appalled and heartbroken at a Congress that refuses to stand up to a president who not only seems ignorant of the Constitution but who also attempts at every turn to dismantle and mock our system of checks and balances," Davis wrote.

She also said her father would call on Americans "to recognize that the caustic, destructive language emanating from our current president is sullying the dream that America once was."

'Comey and the boys' shouldn't have hidden probe of Paul Manafort during campaign, Trump says

  'Comey and the boys' shouldn't have hidden probe of Paul Manafort during campaign, Trump says The FBI shouldn't have kept the money laundering probe of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort secret both before and after he was hired, President Trump tweeted early Sunday."As only one of two people left who could become President, why wouldn’t the FBI or Department of 'Justice' have told me that they were secretly investigating Paul Manafort (on charges that were 10 years old and had been previously dropped) during my campaign?" Trump tweeted.

And Davis, who frequently criticized her father's policies, said Reagan would condemn Trump's frequent attacks on the press.

"He didn't always like the press - no president does - but the idea of relentlessly attacking the media as the enemy would never have occurred to him," she wrote. "And if someone else had done so, he wouldn't have tolerated it."

She also knocked Trump over his administration's crackdown on immigration.

"There is a difference between immigration laws and cruelty," Davis wrote. "He believed in laws; he hated cruelty."

Trump has said that Reagan was his favorite president during his lifetime, and has shared old photos of him with Reagan.

Reagan died on June 5, 2004, after a decade-long battle with Alzheimer's disease.
