The emoluments clause for those that aren’t hip to the constitution is a clause in the American document that dictates no person holding any form office shall profit from a foreign government by financial means or gifts. During the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, Trump, did just that on numerous levels and occasions and has now gotten a free pass.
According to CNN, The Supreme Court without comment or dissent has ruled that lower courts must vacate a previous order that went against Trump on the matter. The matter being the fact that foreign governments and their ilk repeatedly stayed at Trump ‘s properties in order to gain political points with the then President. SCOTUS has now ruled that the dispute be dismissed entirely leaving open for eventual judicial interpretation the very same matter.
