The president does a lot of things that he knows are illegal, then pretends to be oblivious to the law, regardless of the fact that he was warned the last time he broke the very same law. That is exactly what he’s doing with the Emoluments Clause Monday afternoon, and it couldn’t be more pathetic.
The president just held a cabinet meeting open to the press where he discussed his reasoning behind wanting to hold the next G7 Summit at his Doral Golf Resort in Miami, Florida.
Check out video from the meeting below:
