Apparently the President of the United States retweeted a post by his son, Eric Trump, touting their Washington hotel. The one where the United States Government owns the real estate and the Trumps hold a lease.
Because it has gained favor with foreign governments, lobbyists, and sycophants hoping to gain favor with the president…it has been a point of contention…and an open violation of that pesky emoluments clause of the US Constitution.
But the president wasn’t happy just letting that little issue lay…and thank the GOP electeds for ignoring it…no…he has to jump in with both feet and retweet:
The double promotion with White House clout occurred at the same time that the Trump family is slamming Hunter Biden for allegedly profiting from father Joe Biden’s role as vice president by serving on the board of a Ukrainian energy company
So far no outcry from the right side of the aisle…just like when the president openly and decidedly asked on a live microphone for the Ukraine and China to investigate the Bidens. But until someone with any authority or gravitas from the GOP holds him accountable…nothing will happen.
As the landlords…given the Trump corp’s business record…we can probably find them in some type of violation of the lease and toss them out!
