Donald Trump will violate the US constitution on inauguration day

Because of the emoluments clause, the electoral college would be fully justified in concluding that he is unsuited to the presidency

When Donald Trump swears at the inauguration that he will “faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the United States”, he will be committing a violation of constitutional magnitude.

The US constitution flatly prohibits any “Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under [the United States]” from accepting “any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State”.

Known as the emoluments clause, this provision was designed on the theory that a federal officeholder who receives something of value from a foreign power can be tempted to compromise what the constitution insists be his exclusive loyalty: the best interest of the United States. The clause applies to the president and covers even ordinary, fair market value transactions with foreign states and their agents that result in any profit or benefit. That a hostile government has gotten its money’s worth from our president is obviously no defense to a charge that he has abused his office.

What a joke. You guys can't win at the ballot box so you have to result to shit like this. LOL! You tried the same thing to Bush's first win and tried again with the voting machines in his second win. Stop being bitches and take your loss like the stinky vaginas you all are.
