    Pretty sure the President advertising his own golf courses on his official twitter account is against the rule of doing so. Not sure if this is the emoluments clause or just an ethics violation. I bet this is the middle finger in the face after the emoluments clause case was dismissed this past week. If he was supposed to divest his companies to his sons, he sure as hell still shouldn't be doing advertisements for them using his office platform to do so.

    Amid hurricane emergency, Trump fired off dozens of tweets promoting his golf course, skewering Andrew McCabe, and criticizing journalists

    Tomorrow the ICE round ups begin.

    No one cares about Trump's tweets about his golf courses. Call it outrage fatigue.

    I clicked on your Yahoo link but it didn't display the tweets wherein Trump promoted his golf courses. Can you provide an example?

    If you click on the second link you can see the advertisement... and before you say it is The Trump Foundation, HE RETWEETED IT on his regular Twitter account. So that gotcha moment you thought you were going to get, not going to happen.

    Trump tweets from his personal account that he has had for years. Are you saying that what he did is illegal or just unethical or both? If illegal, can you cite the statute?
