I don’t think you understand the Emoluments clause, Louis. No federal elected official can receive ANYTHING from a foreign government that even LOOKS like it is intended to curry favor. It doesn’t matter if Trump profits from that or not. What matters is that in order to prevent corruption or even the possibility of corruption he has to put all his assets into a blind trust and can have absolutely no hand in or even knowledge of how that trust is being run.

Like what you read? Give Ron van Lienden a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
