    To which there will be no end, and his supporters won't care, right Dog:


    "The Trump Organization pamphlet reveals that the company will not attempt to fully identify and return payments or profits from foreign governments or foreign government-owned entities ― in apparent violation of the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause. This clause forbids the president or other executive branch officials from receiving any payment, title or benefit from foreign governments.

    “This pamphlet raises grave concerns about the President’s refusal to comply with the Constitution merely because he believes it is ‘impractical’ and could ‘diminish the guest experience of our brand,’” Cummings wrote to Sorial.

    The Trump Organization sent the pamphlet to Trump properties on April 11. As Cummings notes, the pamphlet states that identifying all foreign government payments would be “impractical in the service industry” and would “diminish the guest experience of our brand.”

    The pamphlet continues, “It is not the intention nor design of this policy for our properties to attempt to identify individual travelers who have not specifically identified themselves as being a representative of a foreign government entity on foreign government business.”

    Instead, the pamphlet instructs Trump properties to only return profits on identifiable direct payments from foreign governments, foreign embassies, foreign political parties, royal family members and sovereign wealth funds ― who would have to proactively identify themselves as such, without requiring the Trump property to seek out this information another way.

    The Trump Organization policy notably excludes payments from foreign government-owned corporations or other entities often used by foreign governments."
