This deal could NEVER have been made 3 days ago. There needed to be some “tough” love in order to get it done. Great for everybody. Proud of all!

Goofball doesn’t realize he’s making Trump’s point that he and his family have sacrificed financially since he won the presidency.
She makes a good point! We *dont* know if @realdonaldtrump is making a profit or losing $ overall. To me, the bigger Q is: is Trump using his power to force people to pay him money?
Today, the answer was a huge yes.
The Constitution is clear: the President cannot accept gifts or payments from foreign governments. No one is above the law. #EmolumentsClause
The emoluments clause exists because foreign influence was a top concern for the Founders.
But you don't have to take my word for it.
Let Fox News explain what the emoluments clause is — and why hosting a global summit at Trump's resort violates it:
.@realDonaldTrump is flailing. Reversing sanctions against Turkey for brutally attacking our Kurdish partners in exchange for a sham ceasefire seriously undermines the credibility of America’s foreign policy and sends a dangerous message to our allies and adversaries alike.
This is a man openly praising himself for a deal that sanctions ethnic cleansing the same day chief of staff Mulvaney openly admits DT illegally abused his power last July & will be openly violating the #EmolumentsClause again with the #G7Summit at Doral next year.
