    He can still take money from the Trust. His ****ing Trump Organization lawyer Alan Garten confirmed it in 2017. Google it.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    which isn't against the law.
    the president is allowed to make money outside of the presidency.

    Trump could be president and still run his businesses - The Boston Globe

    Most people in government are subject to fairly strict rules regarding conflicts of interest. Cabinet members, for instance, have to recuse themselves from any decisions that might benefit them financially — including issues that would affect close family members.

    But the president and vice president are exempt from these rules.

    also the hotel is giving any money earned from the guests back to the government
    so no one is profiting from them.

    The emoluments clause only applies against a position Trump is the president if you have not noticed.
    Do you not read anything? obviously not.

    this is a 5 minute google search.

    Trump Org reports $191,000 profit from foreign governments, cuts check to Treasury - ABC News

    2. Trump does not run the business nor is there any indication that he is showing favoritism or giving these governments any kind of special treatment.
    3. There is nothing that says that the president is not allowed to run a business and make money off of it.
    4. there is no giving off rooms away as a gift. nor are the people there stopped from staying elsewhere in washington.

    sounds like sour grapes to me and yet another court that doesn't know the law.
    then again it is NY.

    this will go to the SCOTUS and they will have to shut it down yet again.
    how hard is it for these judges to follow the law instead of just making **** up that doesn't exist.
    Who in the Trump organization determines what the "profit" off these things are?
    It's simply pay for play....we stopped using that simple phrase it's only used for some people.

    Are you suggesting that the Justice Department should have defended Bill Clinton in White Water?

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...c35_story.html
    Because it's not against the law for Donald Trump, hotel owner, to conduct financial transactions with foreigners regarding use of his hotel.

    It is claimed that it is against the law for Donald Trump, president of the U.S. A., to conduct financial transactions with foreigners regarding the use of his hotel.
    That's why the DOJ is defending Trump.

    Whitewater occurred before Clinton was elected president and wade strictly a personal affair.

    Where the Hell did I mention the Emoluments Clause in that post?

    They are not wanting to follow the law or do research into the accusations for that reason. They are liberal political hacks who want to embarrass and or remove Trump in defiance of the will of the voters. The liberals on the court even at the SCOTUS are more worried about making law than doing their judicial duties of interpreting the law as written instead of how they wish the law was.

    And Trump owns the trust or is the sole beneficiary of it, so Trump is the sole beneficiary of the profits. It doesn't matter how many entities Trump places between himself and the entities, he is the ultimate owner.
