9. Unfortunately it is true.

There are exceptions, but they would likely be very difficult to prove. For example, Trump cannot discriminate against people because of a "protected status" (I.E. Gender, Religion, Race, etc...) There would likely be problems with firing someone for corrupt purposes as well, but who investigates that? That's right William Barr at DOJ, his crony.

So there are some constraints but they are likely not enforceable with the current idiots in the administration.

You can fire a Black person or a women for being Black or being a woman, you just cannot explicitly do it for that exact reason. People discriminate all the time they just do it in a way that is more difficult to pinpoint on a protected status. "Well, her sales stats were not quite up to par with some of the other top sales staff."
