Donald Trump whined about the "phony Enomulents Clause" in the Constitution being a hindrance to his private business dealings as he was ranting about being forced to cancel his plans to host the 2020 G7 Summit at his resort in Doral, Florida. What Donald doesn't seem to get is that the "phony Enomulents Clause" was placed in the Constitution to prevent exactly what Donald was trying to do, which is to use his position as President to generate a profit for his private business.
Quote | He was vigorously defending his failed decision to host the G7 at his Miami resort.
"I don't think you people [the media], with this phony Emoluments Clause -- and by the way, I would say that it's cost anywhere from $2 billion to $5 billion to be president."
