D.C. artist Robin Bell's protest outside Trump's D.C. hotel alleging a violation of the Emoluments Clause.

The Attorneys General of Washington D.C. and Maryland are suing President Donald Trump for violating the U.S. Constitution under the Emoluments Clause, which prevents the president from accepting “any present, Emolument, Office of Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign state.” Because Trump is still “enmeshed” in his real estate empire, and his D.C. hotel in particular, the lawsuit claims he has illegally profited from his relationships with foreign leaders while president. Kojo examines the case with both attorneys general, and examines the local context with a Washington Post reporter.
