Which PEOPLE? The Democrat people, the press people, the FOUNDERS people? Double down on corrupt. Double down on IGNORANCE. Double down on STUUUUPID. Washington did it. So can I. Did Washington run his biz from the WH?

"THIS phony" emoluments clause? Text.

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Those who are pushing this false narrative which is most everyone on the left.
Are you suggesting that the Emoluments Clause doesn't exist? Or are you suggesting that Trump did not make the comments as depicted in the video?

It would apply but in the clause it states it only does "without the consent" of congress.

Congress gave their consent so unless they overturn that law then not only the president but a few others are exempt from the clause.
