What is the Emoluments Clause and how did Trump break it repeatedly? Here are all the ways Trump has been lining his own pockets in office:

The 116th Congress tolerated a President: 1) taking emoluments in violation of the anti-corruption clause of the Constitution 2) obstructing justice 3) interfering with CDC in a pandemic 4) lying about public health, national security, & now election integrity Historic failures.

The Supreme Court won't revive a lawsuit by Democratic members of Congress who argued that President Trump has been violating the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, which bans foreign payments to a sitting US president.

Can you believe it? This brazen president is inviting the 7 most powerful countries in the world to hold its conference at his FAILING hotel in FL, the Trump Doral, disregarding the emoluments clause that's already the subject of two lawsuits?

President Trump at the White House lashed out at having to reverse himself on the G7 being at Trump Doral. He said: “You people with this phony Emoluments Clause." Note: The emoluments clause is a provision of the U.S. Constitution (Article I, Section 9, Paragraph 8).

Trump’s illegal self-enrichment spans the globe—proof that the emoluments clause'>Foreign Emoluments Clause is not self-enforcing. That’s why I’ve filed a lawsuit against him. We must block these payments & benefits that mock the Constitution’s premier anti-corruption clause.

After saying the Emoluments Clause is "phony," Trump says that being president "cost me anywhere from $2 billion to $5 billion." This is not remotely true. Trump doesn't have $5 billion to lose.

Trump gripes about no Doral G7: “you people with this phony emoluments clause.” (Fact check: it’s in the constitution)

Today, Donald Trump called the Emoluments clause, which is part of the Constitution, “phony.” The conspiracy against him apparently started in the 1700s.

The emoluments clause exists because foreign influence was a top concern for the Founders. But you don't have to take my word for it. Let Fox News explain what the emoluments clause is — and why hosting a global summit at Trump's resort violates it:

Will House Democrats investigating potential violations of the emoluments clause in the Constitution be looking into frmr Pres Clinton & Secty Clinton taking money from foreign govts/organizations when she was Secty of State? Otherwise double standard + partisan probe

Mark your calendars: our lawsuit seeking to hold President Trump accountable for violations of the emoluments clause'>Foreign Emoluments Clause will be argued on June 7th.
