President Trump’s many family business holdings is beginning to attract lawsuits over possible conflicts-of-interest.
FOX’s Jon Decker explains from the White House:
A federal lawsuit is being filed against President Trump, arguing he’s violating anti-corruption clauses in the Constitution.
The suit by the attorneys general in the nation’s capital and Maryland claims that President Trump’s decision to retain ownership of his real-estate empire violates the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, which bars federal officials from accepting payments from foreign interests without congressional approval.
The President’s lawyers maintain that because foreign entities pay market-rates for goods and services at Trump hotels and golf courses, they are not “emoluments.”
