Corruption Writ Large
Trump wants the next meeting of the G-7 to be at one of his golf communities. Representatives of countries attending would have to pay his company for accommodations, meals, etc.
You don’t have to be a lawyer, or familiar with the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution, or have even heard the phrase “conflict of interest” to know that something would be profoundly corrupt about such an arrangement. Trump doesn’t care. He’s gotten away with so much, why shouldn’t he get away with this?
