The court just said ‘yes’ — President Trump has won and the Democrats are furious. Liberals thought they were going to win this case, but justice has prevailed.
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals threw out the Democrats’ lawsuit claiming that the president is violating the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause (prohibiting foreign gifts) since foreign leaders and diplomats sometimes stay at Trump’s hotel in DC.
“Word just out that I won a big part of the Deep State and Democrat induced Witch Hunt,” tweeted Trump. Unanimous decision in my favor from The United States Court of Appeals For The Fourth Circuit on the ridiculous Emoluments Case.”
Trump continued: “I don’t make money, but lose a fortune for the honor of serving and doing a great job as your President (including accepting Zero salary!).”
There’s no doubt that this is a huge setback for House Democrats wanting to make Trump’s business ventures an issue in the 2020 election. They never expected the court to side with Trump, but anyone who knows how to read wasn’t surprised.
