So looks like Trump has awarded next year’s G-7 summit of world leaders to his Miami-area resort and as usual leftist are complaining that he set himself up with a huge contract even though the Secret Service selected the location due to logistics.

Even if he gave himself the contract, there is no law that says it is illegal. It isn't a quid pro quo or nothing like Biden. It's seem to me that leftists are just in a pissy mood and complains about everything. If there is a law, I would like to see it. Has anyone seen it???

I heard this a couple of days ago.

I think Trump was sitting back in his Oval Office and wondering. . . "What can I do that'll piss off the left next?"

And yet people put all the blame on the left as if Trump is innocent in the division of our country. 😂

In order for your sentence to be factual, you'd first have to show that the country was undivided before Trump came into office.

Because he has the best bedbugs. They are the most beautiful bedbugs on earth! All the world leaders need to gather around and admire his amazing bedbugs!

I think the law is called the constitution of the United states?

And, rumor has it the place does have a bedbug problem, or did..

Sure, and if Biden is guilty, so is Trump.

Awarded? Or did you mean invited?

I didn't think the POTUS could award the location for the G-7 summit, but what do I know?

They always reference the Foreign Emoluments Clause, but I can't find it in the definition. The closes I found even though it is not the same, is below.

"The foreign emoluments clause also broadly encompasses any kind of profit, benefit, advantage, or service, not merely gifts of money or valuable objects. Thus, it would prohibit a federal officeholder from receiving special consideration in business transactions with a foreign state (or with a corporation owned or managed by a foreign state) that gave the officeholder a competitive advantage over other businesses. Arguably, as the legal scholar Laurence Tribe and others have suggested, the clause would forbid even competitively fair transactions with foreign states, because the profit accruing to the officeholder would fall within the ordinary meaning of “emolument,” and because such arrangements would threaten exactly the kind of improper influence that the clause was intended to prevent."

But still the hotel contract is given to Trump by the USA government not by a foreign state, and the foreign state isn't giving him a gift because it's a transaction for a fair exchange of service. So still I don't see it here, unless i am blind.

Since he and Trump Co. have been donating the monies earned from foreign nationals on official business to the Treasury since 2017, this will be an odd debate to have.

Trump donates profits to Treasury

The left responded by demanding to know who the people were, a breakdown of their bill to see what the ate and what they watched and a forensic investigation of the receipts.

The left... the party of Cray-Cray.

Where does the secret service recommendation come in...from an OP's broken link,
apart from the fact that the resort is a nightmare for the secret service.

OK I have to call you out on this, Please, show us the link to where President Trump said he would bring the country together after he gets elected.

I did not Vote Trump to "Bring the country together". it wont for Trump or anyone else. No one can make all of america happy.

Kinda like the left asking "when was America ever Great". it's a subjective question.

to some America was never Great, to others America has always been great.

So Please, link to his campaign promise to "unite America"

or not, I suspect the latter.

They are doing what they always do... attempting to re-write and reinterpret the laws to their benefit.

Fun fact... if the emoluments clause means what the Democrats say it means now, 7 of the first 9 Presidents would have broken it.

Most of those helped write the Emoluments Clause.

Hint... it doesn't cover businesses you owned before coming to office.

It was actually written so that a foreign power couldn't just outright bribe a President (OR another Federal elected official) to achieve a political goal within the US.

So for them to use it seems to just be a standard Alinsky tactic used by the left.

Whatever you are guilty of, accuse your opponent of it until they defend themselves.

Wonder where they got that from...

Would be funny if he got impeached then they held it at his resort. He is just left waiting on the leaders of the world and mike pence.

"Now it's time for America to bind the wounds of division — have to get together" Trump told screaming supporters gathered at the New York Hilton. "To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people."

I'm hoping to debate that soon... I waited 10 days after your Debate OP to put my own up because I thought it polite.

I'm hoping it will go somewhere.

Thanks you for bringing it up because I really didn't know anything about it before.

Maybe I will get to learn.... ermmm..

That word...

OH!

Civility!

Do you mean something like a foreign government renting entire floors without anyone staying there? How exactly are we expected to view things like that?
