    Trump to host G7 at his own Florida resort property

    Trump to host G7 at his own Florida resort property

    I guess the guy figured the time to enrich himself from both foreign and domestic taxpayer might be closing down soon, with impeachment and all... So, should hurry up and do it!

    "Hosting the G7 Summit at Doral implicates both the Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses, because it would entail both foreign and U.S. government spending to benefit the President, the latter potentially including both federal and state expenditures. More importantly, the Doral decision reflects perhaps the first publicly known instance in which foreign governments would be required to pay President Trump's private businesses in order to conduct business with the United States," Nadler said.
    Right on!

    Doral has the best facilities of all the sites under consideration, Mulvaney told reporters.
    I bet all the properties that they really considered had Trump name on them.

    Mulvaney defended hosting the 2020 G7 at Doral, saying that Trump will not be profiting in "any way, shape or form".
    Alternative facts, folks... just move along...

    I guess the last act of Trump before leaving will be to sell White House itself and its land to Trump Org; so all future Presidents rent from him and his offspring.

    Damn, they really are desperate.

    They used to try to deflect from wrong doing by getting the media focused on silliness like Melania's jacket or Trump's golf trips.

    But Ukraine is so serious and the hearings are going so badly for them that now they're throwing everything into the fire -- set Turkey loose on our Kurdish allies last week, the most in-your-face violation of the emoluments clause yet this week. What will happen next week?

    What will happen next week? Well maybe this! I was watching CNN and they were saying someone in the know has evidence that an official has been talking to someone behind closed doors about something damaging.

    It's really almost unbelievable. Trump is just determined to make the office of the president equivalent to what happens in third world countries, where the President is expected to come into office and line his pockets and those of his friends and supporters. That's how it works.

    We know this about Trump but what is so shocking is the willingness of people like Mulvaney to take a wrecking ball to their integrity to support this nonsense. There's no one not a complete moron who believes the WH did an actual vetting, except between various Trump branded properties, and to claim they did is insulting and degrading to Mulvaney. Worse than that is the standard clearly should be for the President to avoid corruption and the appearance of it. Trump just crapped on that idea, and the GOP will go along with that.

    This is a big nothingburger. It's the POTUS's privilege to decide on the venue. Big deal.

    You seem to believe that you're capable of lecturing me to behave a certain way on a public message board.
    You're not.

    Oh, and about that broad brush you're so fond of brandishing... bwaahaha

    Thank you for proving me 100% right about Trump and Trump supporters. You only strengthen my points with each pathetic post you make. Trump supporters should either be locked up in a mental institution or jail. They are of no use to society whatsoever.
