Elizabeth Warren Leads The Charge Against Trump By Enforcing The Constitution - The Ring Of Fire


So they talk about the emoluments clause and it has been brought up that Trump's businesses are in violation

This is the clause
No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

ARTICLE I, SECTION 9, CLAUSE 8

Definition of emolument
1
:  the returns arising from office or employment usually in the form of compensation or perquisites

This CLEARLY says that you can't,
Get a Present (such as Nobel Peace Prize)
Get paid
Have a job or political position
Have a Title (such as Nobel Peace Prize winner)

From a KING, PRINCE or FOREIGN government

I hope they try this one. Courts will laugh them out on this like they did Stein in PA

Let's look at precedent
Theodore Roosevelt (didn't get rid of his business interests)
Franklin Roosevelt (didn't get rid of his business interests)
JFK (didn't get rid of his business interests)
Jimmy Carter (didn't get rid of his business interests)

Funny how NOW the Democrats suddenly care about the Constitution now that they see power slipping from their grasp, for the last 8 years they did nothing but try to tear up "That outdated piece of paper".
