Over the past few years, Democrats and Mainstream Media have attacked, belittled, criticized, and demeaned President Trump. They have tried to vilify his success as a businessman, yet his success in business is supposed to be what the American dream is all about. They have tried to label him as a Russian spy, yet have been unable to provide any evidence or validation. They attack him as a racist, yet he has brought black unemployment to the lowest in history, fought for the Dreamers while Democrats have abandoned them. They attacked him as profiting off of his Presidency, yet he has donated ALL OF HIS PRESIDENTIAL SALARY to various charities, and now it has come to light that he has even donated money that his Trump Hotels made from foreign governments to the United States Treasury.
The check represents the net profits the Trump Organization — which includes both the president’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla., and the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. — made from doing business with foreign leaders for Trump’s first year in office.
“Our donation to the treasury was voluntary and one that I am very proud of,” Trump said. “Although we are not legally obligated to do this, we have pledged to account for all profits from foreign government business at our hotels and clubs and have donated that money back to the United States of America.”
Democrats, Progressive watchdog groups, and the Mainstream Media attacked the President and his companies for making money from foreign nationals who visit the United States and stay in his hotels or poperties, citing that it represents a sitting United States President taking illegal contributions from foreign governments. However, in December 2017, the New York Times reported that:
“a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit on Thursday that accused President Trump of violating the Constitution’s (emolument’s clause) by continuing to own and profit from his business empire.”
Nearly 200 democrats in Congress had also filed a lawsuit against President Trump in June. The New York Times reported that:
some legal authorities consider that suit to be a purely political move, with little likelihood of success.
In regards to the donation from Trump properties, Eric Trump stated that:
“We understand the bigger picture and believe it is simply the right thing to do,”
It is only natural that Trump properties have become very popular with foreign groups due to the continual spotlight being placed on President Trump.
President Trump said:
“Knowing that all profits from foreign patronage at our hotels and clubs will be donated to the Treasury, we gain nothing as a business from them.”
Unfortunately, it is unlikely that the Progressive-Socialist Democrats and Mainstream Media will even report his following through with his promises, or if they do, it will be buried where most Americans will not read about it or see it. Never-the-less, President Trump has followed through on every one of his promises to date, and in the end, President Trump may not be profiting from his office as the President of the United States, but the American people certainly are.
