  1. Dear G-6 allies: Please turn down the offer to hold the summit at Doral. Maybe Trump will get the message that he's not the dictator of the world.

  2. What difference does it make whether Trump breaks rules or laws anyway? He's been shown to have broken a bunch of rules AND LAWS since his election, and he hasn't been held accountable for anything, so what good is it to even speculate about his publicly recommending another breech of the Emoluments Clause when he hasn't been questioned about breeches he's already made?

  3. If he doesn’t want to make MONEY why is he ADVERTISING it. He owns it. What’s wrong with Camp David?

  4. Trump committed obstruction of justice – repeatedly – listen to Mueller Report podcast or read it. Just like Nixon & Clinton did. Democrats in Congress not doing anything about it. So does anyone really think the spineless Pelosi & Schumer will call for anything to be done about his repeated violations of the Emolluments Clause? Corruption is rampant in Trump world & GOP & Congress are doing NOTHING about it!!

  5. Does any one remember when the worst scandal/ controversy on President Obama (and the right tried all the time to find something) was when he wore a Tan suit and they said that a Tan suit was unpresidential??? Everything this yahoo Trump does is unpresidential https://www.yahoo.com/news/happy-5-anniversary-barack-obamas-160748205.html

  6. What if he did? the US is so corrupt the people who are supposed to bring him to book are most likely in it with him. The US makes banana republics blush because most Americans are as gullible and backward as jungle natives.

  7. MSNBC and CNN become more childish with their petty, gossipy "reporting" on Trump with each passing day. They can't seem to comprehend that they're looking like Fools.

  8. The constitution? You don't even need to go that high, he straight up violated a law:
    § 2635.702 Use of public office for private gain.
    An employee shall not use his public office for his own private gain, for the endorsement of any product, service or enterprise, or for the private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity, including nonprofit organizations of which the employee is an officer or member, and persons with whom the employee has or seeks employment or business relations. The specific prohibitions set forth in paragraphs (a) through (d) of this section apply this general standard, but are not intended to be exclusive or to limit the application of this section.

    Now you know more law than the President of the United States

  9. Trump doesn't care……..he has broken the law before being president and while being president ………nothing happened to him yet…..

  10. Make a trade. Trump's tax returns back to 1975 and all of his high school and college grades for G7 at his tacky resort.

  11. These distractions your trying aren't working. The ig report is here and we get to see the dumbasses from russiagate get locked up. Better run and hide hillary

  12. He really is sucking America dry. You gotta give it to him… He knows exactly wht it means to his business 😂😂😂😂💀💀💀💀💀

  13. Constitution what Constitution no one makes Trump follow the rules he does as he pleases while we scream for congress to impeach

  14. When folks comment on these videos about Trump being the best president and that he's doing a great job, that just tells me that they have nothing of value and nothing to lose. They just want him around to keep stirring up hate.

  15. We all assume when trump loses in 2920 he will just leave the WH and go back to NYC or wherever. That is how it works. That is how its setup in the Constitution. Trump has proven the rule of law and the Constitution do not apply to him and no one is holding him accountable for his actions. Therefore he does not have to go back anyplace, if he dose not want to, and no one will force him to. Really who will step up and drag him out of office when he has call on his domestic terrorist organization MAGA members to preform acts of domestic terrorism and violence if anyone trys. Trump and the Republicans in Congress have shown our form of government with checks and balances only works when they follow the Constitution. They have found out there is no well to hold trump accountable or them for that matter to any Constitutional authority to stop them or their abuses of power and corruption. Trump has a domestic terrorist army of millions willing to set him up as a full blown dictator at his feet and the world is standing by watching him set the stage to do just that. It's not going to be a peaceful event of the next president taking over when trump decides the election was rigged and he dose not have to leave and is not going any place. Will anyone step up and drag him out of the WH kicking and screaming when the time comes when his million terrorist stand ready to destroy the country for trump to become the country's first dictator?

  16. Who cares? What will Congress do about it! This can’t be the unconstitutional straw that breaks the camels back🤨

  17. This is a conflict of interest he should not be allowed to have the G7 at his properties he’s going to make millions upon millions off of taxpayers

  18. Let him steal
    Let him rob
    Let him cheat
    Let him lie
    Let him hate
    A wicked man will never ever get away with things like this forever

  19. YES HE VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION by pitching his OWN resort for an international summit! Duh, there is no other way to argue this point. He wants the world leaders to gather in Florida in August, hurricane central, for his personal profit.
