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.
