    Newsweek lists over 2500 instances of Trump using his office to profit.

    "Trump's conflicts were sorted into five broad categories by CREW. Here is the tally of conflicts by type:

    • 1,493: visits to Trump properties by government officials including the president
    • 533: miscellaneous interactions between government officials and the Trump Organization
    • 286: instances in which the president or administration officials used their platform to promote Trump properties
    • 176: events by political organizations or foreign governments held at Trump's properties
    • 63: trademark approvals to Trump businesses in foreign countries during while he is in office"
    Trump has more than 2,500 conflicts of interest and counting, according to a new live tracker by a watchdog

    Trump fucking America as he fills his pockets. He is laughing at you Trumpettes all the way to the bank.

    Keep at it. Perhaps you'll inspire the House Democrats to fuck up some more.

    Trump is the closest thing this country has come to a Latin American style President. A corrupt caudillo who uses the office for personal profit.

    This makes it all the more ironic when Trumpers slam Latin America. No one is more in line with the corrupt political system of Latin America than Trump.

    The purpose of a corrupt Latin American presidency is to enrich himself and family. Trump is doing exactly that. Trump and his family are making millions off corruption and the government trough. As a matter of fact, the whole Trump Organization would probably be headed for bankruptcy if it were not for the over one hundred million dollars and counting that have poured to the Trump Organization from the Treasury.

    The Trump family have always been no better than grifters. The Trump family thanks all the useful idiots that continue to support him and their corrupt ways,

    OMG!! Maybe that emoluments bullshit has been tried and was rejected by the courts!! Got anything else?
    D.C. and Maryland v. Trump - Wikipedia
    "D.C. and Maryland v. Trump is a lawsuit filed on June 12, 2017, in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland. The plaintiffs, the U.S. state of Maryland and the District of Columbia, allege that the defendant, President Donald Trump, has violated the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution by accepting gifts from foreign governments. The lawsuit was filed by D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine and Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh.

    The suit alleges that Trump has committed "unprecedented constitutional violations" by not disentangling his business interests from his presidential responsibilities. The attorneys general cited the Trump International Hotel's effect on business in the Washington D.C. area as one reason for filing the lawsuit.[ The suit seeks an injunction to stop Trump from violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution. The attorneys general stated they will seek Trump's tax returns as part of their case.

    A three-judge panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the case in July 2019, ruling that the attorneys general lacked legal standing to sue. All three of the judges were appointed by Republican presidents. New arguments in a rehearing of the appeal were heard on December 12, 2019."

    They justify it all by claiming Trump is losing money off his bottom line by being president. It is not our duty as tax payers to maintain Trump's income level.
