President Trump on Tuesday disputed that he’s profiting off the presidency, arguing instead that lawsuits alleging he’s violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution amount to “presidential harassment” and are costing him significant legal fees.
“I got sued on a thing called emoluments. Emoluments. You ever hear of the word? Nobody ever heard of it before,” Trump said at a Shell petrochemical plant in Pennsylvania.
The article goes on to state the following:
“And what it is is presidential harassment, because this thing is costing me a fortune, and I love it,” Trump added. “I love it because I’m making the lives of other people much, much better.”
Multiple lawsuits have alleged Trump is in violation of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, which prohibits elected officials from receiving gifts or benefits from foreign governments without Congress’s approval.
