TFG’s Businesses Received Millions of Dollars from Foreign Entities During His Four Disastrous Years in Office

ArtI.S9.C8.3 Foreign Emoluments Clause Generally: Article I, Section 9, Clause 8:

"No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State."-US Constitution

It should come as no shock to anyone, unless you’re a MAGAt that firmly believes TFG never did anything wrong and it’s all a ‘witch hunt’ or ‘politically motivated,’ that TFG received at least $7.8 million in foreign payments from 20 countries during his four disastrous years in the White House, Democratic congressional investigators said Thursday.

"These countries spent — often lavishly — on apartments and hotel stays at Donald Trump's properties — personally enriching President Trump while he made foreign policy decisions connected to their policy agendas with far-reaching ramifications for the United States," the report said.

The countries included China, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Malaysia.

Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

House Democrats released evidence that he took in at least $7.8 million from foreign entities while in office, engaging in the kind of conduct the G.O.P. is grasping to pin on President Biden.

Donald J. Trump’s businesses received at least $7.8 million from 20 foreign governments during his presidency, according to new documents released by House Democrats on Thursday that show how much he received from overseas transactions while he was in the White House, most of it from China.

The transactions, detailed in a 156-page report called “White House For Sale” that was produced by Democrats on the House Oversight Committee, offer concrete evidence that the former president engaged in the kind of conduct that House Republicans have labored, so far unsuccessfully, to prove that President Biden did as they work to build an impeachment case against him.

Using documents produced through a court fight, the report describes how foreign governments and their controlled entities, including a top U.S. adversary, interacted with Trump businesses while he was president. They paid millions to the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.; Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas; Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York; and Trump World Tower at 845 United Nations Plaza in New York.

Who should be the next senator from California?
