Emoluments

WASHINGTON – A mere 72 hours after the Chinese government agreed to put a half-billion dollars into an Indonesian project that will personally enrich Donald Trump, the president ordered a bailout for a Chinese-government-owned cellphone maker.

“President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast,” Trump announced on Twitter Sunday morning. “Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!”

Trump did not mention in that tweet or its follow-ups that on Thursday, the developer of a theme park resort outside of Jakarta had signed a deal to receive as much as $500 million in Chinese government loans, as well as another $500 million from Chinese banks. Trump’s family business, the Trump Organization, has a deal to license the Trump name to the resort, which includes a golf course and hotels.

He bragged that he would be the first president to make money from the presidency.

There you go again. CNS News is "baaaaaaad" according to you because it's a biased news source, but you see no issue posting spin from Huffpo. Hilarious.

You realize that Andrew Breitbart was one of the original founders of Huffpo, right?

I think that Agent Orange is going to get some Palestinian Gaza Strip land for a golf course & hotel courtesy of Bibi the Bozo.
