In a segment of the 11th Hour with Brian Williams, aired on April 18, 2018, the profits to Trump’s businesses, as a result of his presidency, are explored. Per MSNBC:
“President Trump has taken to calling Mar-a-Lago the “southern White House” and has been vocal about talking it up during his summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Is the business of the president enriching the president’s business?”
The campaign to Impeach Donald Trump Now was launched because, from the moment he took office, Trump’s refusal to divest from his business interests has placed him in direct violation of the US Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments Clause and Domestic Emoluments Clause, which forbid the President from profiting from the office. The Clauses are also in place to prevent conflicts of interests which may influence the decision making of the President and impact his ability to serve the American people, as the oath of office requires.
