Isn't Trump's advertising of his books (verbal or otherwise) also a violation of the emoluments clause ?

    He has $6 billion dollars, you desperate fa...ggot. He doesn’t want or need your money. He has enough money to last 10,000 people for a lifetime.

     He’s selling his books at a low cost because he really wants people to get educated, stop being globalist commie shills, and learn how great America is! 

    Also: the emoluments clause doesn’t apply to him privately selling his own books. 

    If that was the case, Obama would be in jail because Obama wrote/sold plenty of books during his presidency.

    But let’s be honest. You don’t care about the emoluments clause, what it’s for, or about our constitution or laws in general.

    You simply hate Da Don, you want him impeached by any means necessary, and you are flat out a hostile enemy to our duly elected president. (And you also don’t want anybody reading his books, because then they might start thinking for themselves and stop being idiotic commies.)

    Not even REMOTELY close. Th emoluments clause is about getting paid to do something in your capacity as President. Unless you buying the books changes how he acts AS PRESIDENT, it isn't even loosely connected.

    Maybe, but I think that there would have to be something egrigious and obvious to prompt Congress to impeach Trump over book sales.

    Like maybe if the Jinping bought a billion dollars worth of Art of the Deal and Trump supported a Chinese crackdown in Hong Kong.

    Emoluments clause just guides impeachment and impeachment is political.  I can't see any Congress supporting impeachment over book sales, no matter how partisan.

    Obama published books while he was President  Let us know when you plan to have him prosecuted for promoting them.
