Axios morning email thingie informs us of the latest (potential?) violation of the Emoluments Clause (weird formatting and enigmatic bullet usage is theirs, I swear):
The Trump administration, which next year will host the leaders of the world’s most powerful economies for the G7 summit, has completed site surveys of possible locations, and is down to its final few choices.
- Among the finalists, Axios’ Jonathan Swan has learned: Trump National Doral, President Trump’s 800-acre golf club in Miami.
Why it matters: Trump loves showing off and promoting his properties, with no qualms about criticism for mixing state and personal business. He has hosted both China’s Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-Lago.
Notice how Axios doesn’t really draw attention as to how weird this is, just off-handedly mentioning that Prznint Stupid just loves self-dealing and raiding the treasury?
This keeps happening because: laws don’t matter anymore.
