Sue for what? What right is being violated? I don't think there's a such thing as a right to keep your job even when your employer doesn't want you anymore.

He might (and it's a stretch) have a First Amendment case, but only if his employer is a public school. Government agencies are required to honor Constitutional rights, unlike private organizations. If he can successfully argue that he's being punished for expressing a viewpoint he may be able to succeed.

"Wrongful termination" is a violation of labor law and his employment contract with the School District.

Why is it wrongful? Is it wrong to fire people for what they say? What if he said "I love butt fucking little boys"? Would it still be wrong?

Be careful what principles you're advocating.

Not a "viewpoint". He is stating a fact. Unless the school board can prove Donald Trump is not our president, they have no grounds whatsoever. Fact versus opinion are highly different.

You're missing the whole point. Grounds are not required for terminating employment unless their union contract requires grounds.

They're not different in a legal sense. It's all speech.

The 1st Amendment, you fucking retard. It is not even ambiguous. Also Equal Opportunity, Civil rights, labor laws, contract law, the list goes on. That administration is both insane and stupid.

Your employer is not bound by your Constitutional rights, retard. Constitutional rights are limits on governmental power. That's all. You can completely legally be fired for what you say.

You have to have cause to fire a public employee beyond their probationary period. Saying Trump is our president would not qualify as "cause" for firing.

That depends on the state's employment laws and the employee's collective bargaining agreement (if any).
