Ethics Group To File Lawsuit Against Donald Trump for Ethics Violation

It’s in the United States Constitution that no elected official shall accept gifts from any foreign government. Donald Trump should not be the exception to that and a watchdog group is determined to hold Trump’s feet to the same standards with a lawsuit.

The group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said that because Trump-owned buildings take in rent, room rentals and other payments from foreign governments, the president has breached the Emoluments Clause. That clause in the Constitution says that “no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under [the United States], 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.” It was written out of fear that the young republic’s leaders or ambassadors could be bought off by a richer European power..
