    Yes and it's a very good article but they also are not calling Trump corrupt, that one is on you.

    They make no assumptions whatsoever, they just report facts and let people draw their own conclusions from it.

    You have no proof of any corruption and are using this source to imply that there is.

    So you think your going to "score" something but insulting my intelligence? While you will support MM no matter what? The irony...
    He does not own a hotel in Turkey. The hotel uses his name. The real owner is Turkish and pays to use the Trump brand. Why do you spread lies?

    Well if you think the the President of the United States should be profiting from that role and along the way help out his family and business friends, than yeah, something is not right with you. If this had been Hillary you would be having a meltdown - and rightly so. Your suppose to served the people, not profiting and breaking all kinds of long established rules to profit from the WH.

    And you keep diverting about how much he lies, how he basically threw out ethics rules, how he even said his hotel in Turkey was a conflict of interest.

    And still there is so much more..

    So your saying MM is lying? Well that's not a big surprise.

    President Trump said that he has a "conflict of interest" in Turkey because of a development there in a 2015 interview.

    The interview was resurfaced by Mother Jones after Trump faced criticism for congratulating Turkey's president Tayyip Erdogan on winning a referendum that increases his power.

    "I have a little conflict of interest 'cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul," Trump said on Breitbart News Daily. "It's a tremendously successful job. It's called Trump Towers—two towers, instead of one, not the usual one, it's two."

    If he profits or not is irrelevant, what is relevant is the role he does as President which is hampered, and congress agrees, by placing conflict of interest stipulations on the president. Anything a president has in terms of business dealings or owned property or anything could be deemed a conflict of interest.

    Does he pay insurance on his home.....OMG there is a conflict of interest.....maybe he will give insurance companies big breaks now that he is president.

    The same would go for a democratic president......there is simply no way to avoid conflict of interest.

    Seriously the fact that you can't see he violates the Emoluments Clause and all other kinds or norms in relation to his business ties (like every other POTUS has put them in a blind trust) than I can't help you. And you keep trying to divert.
    Yawn... But yep, don't ever lecture others here about morals or integrity because apparently you have none - you just blindly follow your leader, not questions asked. If he shot someone you would find a way to justify that too. I mean it's bad enough that he admitted to committing sexual assault.

    Well if he violated the emoluments clause that's a slam dunk for the democrats to impeach him.

    What are they waiting for?

    I also believe sexual assault is against the law so have the police been notified?
