What gifts are trump receiving, and how does he use those gifts to show favoritism?
Representatives of dozens of foreign governments have spent time and money in Trump properties since he's been elected. That's income. Emoluments doesn't necessarily mean a gift. The definition is "a salary, fee, or profit from employment or office." He is profiting from these foreign governments doing business from him. The emoluments clause doesn't say he has to grant favors in exchange for the emoluments. Accepting them is illegal in and of itself. Granting favors in exchange for the business turns it into bribery.

Biden's adult son is not subject to the emoluments clause of the constitution or any other law that prohibits him from taking a cushy job that he got because his name was Biden.

I answer your questions. You either ignore or don't understand the answers.
So what you are saying is he ran for president so he could rent rooms in his hotels.
If this is what you think, you are insane.

VP Biden was subject to emoluments as much as trump, and his actions are much more relevant to the statute than trump's.

You didn't answer the question why would they pay him so much for nothing? What were they getting for their money?
Are you aware that foreign governments have been booking rooms in trump's hotels and then don't show up? Are you aware that foreign governments buy memberships at Mar-a-Largo?

North Korean Foreign Ministry adviser wrote:We are no longer interested in such talks [with the United States] that bring nothing to us. As we have got nothing in return, we will no longer gift the U.S. president with something he can boast of, but get compensation for the successes that President Trump is proud of as his administrative achievements.
This came after the U.S. called off military exercises with South Korea and asked the North Koreans for another meeting. I guess Trump has worn out his welcome with one of his few remaining international buddies. Well, he'll always have Putin.

President Trump signs the Woman's Suffrage Centennial Coin Act.
President Trump wrote:I'm curious why wasn't it done a long time ago? And also, I guess the answer to that is because now I'm president, we get things done.

Yeah, that should have been done 100 years ago.

Apparently no one's been chosen to appear on the coins.

Bill O’Reilly: But what was Rudy Giuliani doing in Ukraine on your behalf?

Donald Trump: Well, you have to ask that to Rudy, but Rudy, I don't, I don't even know. I know he was going to go to Ukraine and I think he canceled a trip. But, you know, Rudy has other clients other than me. I'm one person.

O’Reilly: So, you didn't direct him to go there on your behalf?

Trump: No, but but you have to understand, Rudy is a great corruption fighter. He's one of the greatest in the last 50 years. He was the greatest mayor in the history of the city of New York, by far, much better than Bloomberg. I mean, Bloomberg when he took it over, the crime was in great shape. I mean, Rudy did a great job as mayor.

O’Reilly: Rudy Giuliani, he's your personal lawyer. So you didn't direct him to go to Ukraine to do anything or put any heat on them?

Trump: No, I didn't direct him but he's a warrior, Rudy's a warrior. Rudy went, he possibly saw something. But you have to understand, Rudy, as other people that he represents...

I think he's done work in Ukraine for years. You know, I've just absolutely done a lot of, he's done a lot of work in Ukraine over the years and I think, I mean that's what I heard. I might have even read that someplace, but he's a good man and he's an honorable guy and he's a great crime fighter, corruption fighter.

I don't think Donny will throw Guiliani under the bus. Not because he's not willing to. But because Guiliani says things like this:

"I do not discuss my conversations with my client. You can assume that I talk with him early and often and have a very, very good relationship with him, and all these comments — which are totally insulting — I mean, I've seen things written like he's gonna throw me under the bus. When they say that, I say, 'He isn't, but I have insurance.'"

I guess Guiliani hasn't forgotten how to deal with mobsters. --Bob

This one took a couple of days to develop, so bear with me.

Trump's in London for the NATO summit. To his credit, he allowed extra time for press questions after each of his meetings on Tuesday. However, his answers were full of misstatements about NATO, Ukraine, China, etc.

Fact check: Trump makes at least 21 false claims at NATO meetings

That evening, Canada, England and France had a laugh at his expense.



On Wednesday, he said Trudeau is two-faced, canceled his news conference, and headed home after his last few meetings.
