President Trump took to twitter early Monday morning and fired off on the “fake news media” for their coverage of the China trade negotiations.
As reported by thehill.com
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that he believes President Trump is violating the Constitution's emoluments clause by making a deal with Beijing over Chinese telecommunications company ZTE.
"I certainly view this as a violation of the emoluments clause, yes. And many others as well, both foreign, in terms of the business effort to expand the Trump Organization," Schiff told CNN's "New Day," referring to a constitutional clause that bars the president from accepting payments or gifts from foreign governments without congressional consent.
"But, also domestically - and this may not be constitutional violation, but it's certainly an ethical violation - by the constant milking of the federal government when the president requires the federal government to patronize Trump-related businesses."
Trump over the weekend said he wanted to help ZTE get "back into business" after the Commerce Department earlier this year prohibited U.S. companies from selling to ZTE because the firm violated American sanctions.
Meanwhile, the South China Morning Post reported last week that the Chinese government will provide $500 million in state loans to build MNC Lido City, a resort and theme park project in Indonesia that will include a golf course and hotels marked with the Trump name.
This is another obstruction attempt against President Trump. A billionaire President with multiple organizations and companies will of course have tied to big profit companies.
What Trump is doing is clearly a negotiation tactic for trade with China but for the democrats it’s simply another opportunity to impeach the President.
We truly hope the American people are waking up to their underhanded tactics.
