Foreign Spending at Trump Properties

Foreign governments frequently spend money at Trump properties. Not only does this create an obvious conflict of interest, but it could actually violate the constitution. We cannot tolerate a president who is so easily financially influenced by foreign officials.

Lawsuits have been filed alleging that President Trump is violating the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause, which prohibits government officials from receiving emoluments, or gifts, from foreign governments.

The Kingdom of Bahrain and the government of Kuwait have both held events at Trump’s hotel in Washington, D.C.

“From the very beginning, I have insisted that his whole relationship with the Trump hotel becomes a massive conflict of interest the day he was sworn in,” said Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA).

Foreign spending at the Trump hotel isn’t just a conflict of interest. It could be illegal.

We can’t allow this to continue.
