EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE

Again watched idiots saying that we’ve never had a president before who was a business man and so Trump is in a different position than previous presidents.  I’m calling BS again.  I’ve been to Mount Vernon and Monticello and those were very much businesses and I don’t recall any blind trusts.  Washington and Jefferson were in positions to further their wealth by pursuing policies that might increase the price of tobacco or cotton or whatever they were growing.  I suspect many other presidents had businesses or farms and didn’t divest.  Nobody raised this nonsense back then when the framers of the Constitution were in office and knew what the clause meant.

One other observation from visiting both plantations, they have many signs et cetera, pointing out the servants quarters.  No they were slave quarters!
