'Governments have donated public land, approved permits and eased environmental regulations for Trump-branded developments, creating a slew of potential conflicts as foreign leaders make investments that can be seen as gifts or attempts to gain access to the American president through his sprawling business empire. The Emoluments Clause was put in place to avoid precisely that blending of public and private interest.”There is no more vivid example of the GOP’s failure to uphold our constitutional system of checks and balances. Each day Trump benefits directly or indirectly by virtue of foreign largess he reduces the administration to the status of banana republic and makes a mockery of our efforts to expose corruption in foreign autocracies and international institutions.'
