Trump Blasts The “Phony Emoluments Clause” [VIDEO]

The Guardian reports:

President Donald Trump on Monday claimed he’s receiving unfair scrutiny because of the “phony emoluments clause,” as he defended his prior decision to host next year’s G-7 summit at his Doral resort in Miami.  “You people with this phony emoluments clause,” Trump said has he took questions from reporters during a Cabinet meeting.

The president was defensive of his initial decision, asserting that hosting the G-7 summit at the Trump National Doral Miami resort would have saved taxpayer money because he “would have done it for free.” Trump blamed the reversal of his decision on Democrats and the media for invoking the emoluments clause as they questioned its legality.
