Enorce the Emoluments Clause – Stop President Trump from Personal Enrichment with Foreign Government Money

Unlike recent Presidents, President Trump has taken no meaningful steps to disentangle himself from his private business interests.  He and his family thus continue to benefit from the myriad Trump companies, many of which receive money and benefits from
foreign countries.  Among other examples, a
recent report found at least 22 governments have spent money at Trump Organization properties and the Metallurgical Corporation of China, a Chinese government company,

loaned $500 million for the benefit of a massive development project in Indonesia, called Lido City, in which the Trump Organization is involved.

investigations revealed, United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee officials were more concerned with protecting the Olympics brand and producing medals than athlete’s health and wellbeing. The time is right to take an Olympics wide accounting of the
