China Approves 38 New Trump Trademarks for His Businesses

Trump sure is accomplishing a lot! For himself and his family, that is! Just 7 weeks into his Presidency and he managed to end the decade old war he was having with China! We're all "One China" friends now!

For more than a decade Donald Trump has been trying to trademark his name, and usurp the word "trump", as in "trump card", or that trumps this, when it comes to businesses in China.

After threatening China with labeling them with criminal "currency manipulation", a trade war and conflict in the China Sea, it's surprising to see such generosity from the Chinese government.


The court case long predates Trump’s run for president. He has been fighting to wrest control of his brand in China for more than a decade against entrepreneurs who have marketed products under his name—or, as some claim, just the word “trump,” with no intent to refer to the famous businessman-turned-politician.


Interesting timing! Not suspicious at all!


Trump's lawyers in China applied for the marks in April 2016, as Trump railed against China at campaign rallies, accusing it of currency manipulation and stealing U.S. jobs. Critics maintain that Trump's swelling portfolio of China trademarks raises serious conflict of interest questions.

China Approves 38 New Trump Trademarks for His Businesses


Because the announcement came shortly after Trump announced for the first time his commitment to the so-called “One China Policy,” in which governments officially recognize the Republic of China but not Taiwan, the decision immediately prompted speculation about conflicts of interest.

The Story Behind Trump’s Chinese Trademark


China's trademark review board announced in September it had invalidated a rival claim for the Trump trademark, clearing the way for Trump to move in. In November, soon after the election, it awarded the trademark to the Trump Organization. The trademark was officially registered this week after a three-month notice period for objections expired.

The sequence of events makes some ethics experts uncomfortable: Chinese authorities reversed their position as Trump's political star rose.

China grants Trump a trademark he's been seeking for a decade

Only 4 of the 38 trademarks granted are for the "Trump Organization". 3 of them are for Scion. The rest are licenses to use Trump or Donald Trump names. There is Trump Construction and Trump hotels, golf courses, escort/concierge serves and retail stores. apnews.com...


Dan Plane, a director at Simone IP Services, a Hong Kong intellectual property consultancy, said he had never seen so many applications approved so quickly. "For all these marks to sail through so quickly and cleanly, with no similar marks, no identical marks, no issues with specifications - boy, it's weird," he said.
The trademarks are for businesses including branded spas, massage parlors, golf clubs, hotels, insurance, finance and real estate companies, retail shops, restaurants, bars, and private bodyguard and escort services. www.nbcnews.com...


So, the elephant in the room is, of course, the Emolument Clause of the US Constitution. Did Donald Trump use his nomination and his office to force China's hand for his and his family's personal financial gain. Are they suddenly granting all these trademarks, and more to come, to curry the US President's favor? Is Donald Trump in violation of the Emolument Clause? If so, we've got an impeachable problem.

There's a possibility that China thinks this would benefit them in the long run and be in the good graces of of Trump given how he acts.

But maybe they are doing the same thing they would/did for Hillary.... Paying to play.

Making the World great again!

I wonder if he'll send American workers over to fill all the new jobs those companies will have!

Can't wait to see Tiananmen Square with the Trump logo plastered all over it.

P.S. Wonder if we'll get to see Trump's taxes for the next year or two!

America has been a corp for almost 100 years now!
Our tax ID number(social security number) is nothing more than an employee number to the fed.
Ever wonder why every piece of information the state and government sends to you has your name in all caps?
Same reason KOHLS and HOME DEPOT are all in caps.

But the fact Trump is now in office this 100 year old issue is now relevant?
Riiiight...

It's both, both sides gain, Trump will get any endorsement monies, (and probably a room or two for pee pees
) and China will profit from their perceived, 'prestige'

Of course, you should know that Trump's son-in-law had talks on what only can be described as just such a deal in November 2016 with a Chinese tycoon,

It all stinks to high heaven, I wish people would wake up.

It really is i can verify that when I took the local Police Civil Service exam. All they cared about was my SS Number. When they all ready have that information on record when i sent my application in to take the test. In my mind I only need to know Gods Number.(My Birthdate). The Social Security Number is the Devil's Number.

This is what a violation of the emoluments clause looks like.

"What sets him apart from the globalist billionaires is that he is not power-hungry (power-sick to be more precise). He has a moral compass that guides him. The result is that power comes to him naturally, but it is not a goal in itself. "


that's a quote from another ats poster about trump. LOLOLOLOL.

he sure does love to slap his name on things for someone NOT power hungry!!

people are so dumb, it's depressing.

But Obama! But Obama! Waaaaah!

First of all, George Bush received the same award, which is not a title of nobility, but a "Medal of Merit", (the King Abdul Aziz Order of Merit ).

Secondly, although it was technically given to Barack Obama, it belongs to the people of the United States, and sits in the National Archives.


Essentially, a gift from a foreign country or foreign leader can be accepted on behalf of the United States, as long as it is handed over to an appropriate arm of the federal government, typically the General Services Administration or the National Archives. Often, these gifts find their way to presidential libraries, where the public can view them. The point is that they are property of the government, not the individual recipient.

Trump's Chinese trademarks aren't considered property of the American People and they're not going to be put on display in the National Archives. They just aren't that kind of gift.

And he should be impeached for it. Using his office for his family to profit is illegal.
