Did Thomas Jefferson write any of the US Constitution?
No, but he is credited for writing the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson was in France at the time of the Constitutional Convention.
The Decleration of Independence
Thomas Jefferson is probably more famous for the Declaration of Independence. This document is often confused with our constitution. When it comes to the writing of the consti…tution numerous delegates sent to Pennsylvania to revise the articles of confederation had their hands in that incident. The most famous, however, would probably be James Madison who was considered the "father of the constitution."
He was in France.
Virginia Statchue for religious freedom
Answer Thomas Jefferson did not sign the Constitution, nor was he present at the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Neither was he present when the First Amendmen…t and religious freedoms were debated in the first session of Congress in 1789, as he was out of the country in France as a U.S. Minister. Due to his not being present to hear all the comments of the Founding Fathers regarding the First Amendment, Thomas Jefferson had to rely on second-hand information to learn what had transpired in that first session of Congress. This rendered his letter to the Danbury Baptists (which was written 13 years after the First Amendment) ineligible to be a "first-hand" reflection of the intent of the constitutional delegates.
Thomas Jefferson acually was a antifedaralist, or someone who didn't support the constition. He thought it would take away the colonists rights as free people.
Did Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution during his presidency?

(Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. He was in France during the Constitutional Convention.) But Jefferson and other Federalists wo…rried that the Constitution lacked a Bill of Rights and had no limit to how many times one could serve in office.
The Declaration of Independence and bill of rights
Formal. One with lots of parallel sentences and paragraphs. Just look at the Declaration of Independence and you'll understand what I'm talking about.
Thomas Jefferson did not sign the Constitution, nor was he present at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 or when the First Amendment and religious freedoms were debated in …the first session of Congress in 1789. During that time he was serving as US Minister to France (equivalent to Ambassador to France).
Thomas Jefferson did not do anything at the Constitutional convention because he did not attend it. He was serving as Ambassador to France at the time and was in Paris.
No. He was still in France.
