"No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or Foreign State." ARTICLE I, SECTION 9, CLAUSE 8
There is a strong argument to be made that with his numerous business entanglements worldwide, U.S. President-Elect Donald J. Trump is running afoul of the Emoluments Clause. It is our duty to remain vigilant and ensure that he and other government officials are held accountable.

I've heard of the news just recently. The Emoluments Clause prohibits businesses owned by Trump to accept payments from foreign governments. In my humble opinion, if Trump violated that, he should be held accountable for that. He should not tell us that he does not know about that law. As the President, he should be aware of it. You're right. As US citizens, we should be more vigilant.

All of his businesses are in a blind trust. He is not handling them. But there is nothing that says he has to give UP his beusinesses to be President. He humored you. He is and was a citizen, well before he was President. He isn't going to give you his businesses. and you have no right to try and make him give them up. You want to impoverish him because he defeated your corrupt candidate for President.

No, they are not in a Blind Trust, a blind trust is just that, your assets go in,you do not know who has them and they are managed and sold off by the trust so you cannot profit by people spending money at your businesses.. He just signed them over,temporarily, to his daughter and son in law and then added them to his White House staff, so NOT allowed(both of his kids are using their positions as well to make money,Jared has deals in Russia,China and more,Ivanka with China etc, so not allowed
Also, every trip to Mar A Lago makes him money as people fill it up to get to watch and listen to White House business conducted, rates there doubled, he will still get all the profits when he leaves office,but curried the favor for them while IN office,not allowed. he has also been violating the entire sign over by funneling profits out in skeevy ways.
Their is more,but this should be plenty.

President Trump is not a traitor. Emoluments Clause is also recognized as the title of nobility clause. This title is actually designed to shield our country from corruptions. I am happy that there are laws like this because our government needs something like this. Members of the government should really be restricted to receive gifts, emoluments, offices or titles from foreign states without the consent of the United States Congress. President Trump has a lot of business worldwide and it is really scary. We really have to observe his actions carefully.

Why it is our duty? I don't understand why it's so important for us.

It is important to us because a corrupt man has put himself in a position to put our entire country up for sale and has been working for years with the Russians to do just that.
