Trump dismisses 'phony Emoluments Clause' after Doral criticism


"President Trump on Monday dismissed criticism that his since-reversed plan to host the Group of Seven (G-7) summit at his Doral property would have led to an ethics violation.
"You people, with this phony Emoluments Clause," Trump said to reporters at the White House during a Cabinet meeting, referring to the constitutional clause that prohibits elected federal officials from receiving gifts or contributions from foreign governments.
Trump offered a lengthy defense of using his Doral resort near Miami to host next year's G-7 summit, and lashed out amid questions about the backlash to his earlier decision.
Trump insisted that he would not have profited off hosting world leaders, scores of journalists and other staff at his family's property near Miami. The president announced Saturday the White House would find a new location for the summit following criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
"It would have been the best G-7 ever," Trump told reporters during a Cabinet meeting, adding that he felt the eventual location would not be as good.
"I would have given it for nothing," he said. "The Democrats went crazy, even though I would have done it free."
Trump, who turned over control of his business empire to his sons but did not put his assets in a blind trust, again criticized former President Obama for his book deal and contract with Netflix, both of which were agreed to after Obama had left the White House.
Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced during a briefing on Thursday that the Doral resort would host the G-7 summit in June. He said the Trump family property was chosen after White House teams scouted a dozen properties as potential sites.
The announcement immediately drew backlash. Critics viewed it as a blatant effort to enrich the president's family business.
Even some Republicans had expressed unease with the decision, viewing it as difficult to defend amid an impeachment inquiry targeting Trump and the president's questionable foreign policy moves in Syria.
Trump reportedly made the decision to pick a new location following a call with Republicans on Saturday.
Democrats have long alleged that Trump has used the presidency to enrich his business empire, citing frequent stays by administration officials and foreign lobbyists at Trump branded properties.
A lawsuit filed by congressional Democrats alleging Trump is violating the Emoluments Clause is working its way through the court system."

Though the emoluments clause isn't phony, the application of it has been.

He gives his salary away but he wants to make money from a G7 meeting..
It's ridiculous.
He probably just wanted to do it for his ego, so he could around bragging that he owned the joint.
But dont let me stop the inability to apply reason to this.

He was doing it for free, and he really does not need the name recognition, really. Check your ego and the way you look at him-try being fair for once in your life.

Actually, I agree with you..it is, and was, all about his ego---as Mulvaney said, Trump still considers himself in the hospitality business...I guess the Presidency is just kind of a part time gig for him.

What's wrong with holding it at the White House? Aren't there plenty of bedrooms for the head honchos? All the staff could stay at the Best Western.

This just in: "Rump says United States Constitution constitutes 'fake news'.

This one's reminiscent of "stop throwing the Constitution in my face, it's just a goddam piece of paper", except this one's on record.

It's a dead horse, much like Russian Collusion.

FFS, give it up until you find something real.

So...if Trump's businesses are part of a blind trust, how could he have 'given it for nothing'?

The democommiecrat tantrum did one good thing. It gave Republicans the theme for the 2020 election. Democommiecrats are too crazy and hostile to govern.

I kinda feel bad for Trump on this one. He likes staying at his properties because they're run just so, the way he likes, and he likes the food and he's familiar with the place. Let's not forget he's an old guy and the older they get, the less they like sleeping away from "home." Hell, when my Dad got older, he'd drive all night rather than stop at a motel. He wanted his own bed.

Trump didn't decide this to get rich. He already is rich. If the decision had anything to do with "making business," it is just automatic with him.

Poor old guy. He should choose someplace near his club and stay there himself. Let someone drive him over in the mornings.
