New records reveal foreign government spending at Trump’s Washington hotel
CNNNov 14, 2022
This latest development confirms what was already known: Trump’s hotel was a magnet for lobbyists, Republicans, and foreign dignitaries hoping to get in the then-president’s good graces. These documents detail the specific amount each foreign country used to sway Trump and the US government and how egregiously Trump violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.
This is just the latest front in the witch hunt against Trump. While the documents indeed show foreign expenditures at Trump's hotel, they fail to provide evidence that Trump was even aware of them or that the spending directly influenced US foreign policy. Trump's opposition is grasping at straws.
