Maybe you didn't read the article?

It doesn't seem to say this is a good thing...

"Up is down, and unlimited foreign emoluments are now all gravy."

I am fairly certain that if the next Dem. Prez. has a child who opens a lemonade stand....Republicans will be crying to the SCOTUS.

We can cross that bridge when we get to it. Right now Dems are filling their diapers over all things Trump.

You do know all profits made by foreign governments staying at Trump hotels are donated to the Treasury Department?

You do know that right?

Trump isn't making any money from foreign governments staying at Trump hotels, so this whole idea of this being an emoluments clause violation was always complete nonsense.

Thousands and thousands of lies, and you guys still don't get it, do you?


They lie. The will say anything, do anything, and promise anything in order to enrich themselves. Including burning America to the ground.


These people are Charlatans. Frauds. Crooks. They have NO moral compass. No ethics. No sense of anything other than self.


Several law suits have been filed over Trump family emoluments and are currently going through the courts. THAT is what will determine whether any revenue they receive from using their office to direct buyers to their investments is legal. Nothing else. Especially not statements from their own crime family.

if TheDonald had not been elected and if dems had not gone batpoop crazy, then when the next dem got elected there simply would be no consideration of emoluments. period.


now that TheDonald has been elected and dems have in fact gone batpoop crazy, republicans will likely retaliate. By necessity it will be a tit for tat, ugly game of gotcha.


just remember it was your side that started it.
