Conflicts of Interest & The Emoluments Clause

posted Nov 29, 2016, 7:38 PM by Daniel Laurison
The Emoluments Clause of the US Constitution says "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."  Emolument means compensation, essentially; Trump's business interests around the world include a number that work directly with foreign governments or corporations controlled by foreign governments.
