FOREIGN OFFICIALS WHO SPEND MONEY AT TRUMP PROPERTIES ARE HELPING HIM VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTION, DEMOCRAT SAYS

A top House Democrat has a warning for foreign officials who spend money at properties owned by President Donald Trump: Stop, because your government is “facilitating” his ability to violate the U.S. Constitution.

The cautionary message came from Representative Eliot Engel, a New York Democrat and chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, in the form of a memo to his staff on Monday but which was released publicly on Tuesday.

“When meeting with officials from a foreign government, please inform them that by providing any form of payment or benefit to a Trump-owned property their government is facilitating the President’s apparent violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause,” the memo stated. https://www.newsweek.com/foreign-governments-spend-money-trump-properties-help-president-violate-constitution-1454135
