Donald Trump to be sued after being accused of violating the US constitution


Donald Trump is set to face two lawsuits today
after being accused of violating the US
constitution. The lawsuit is to be filed today by
the attorneys general of Maryland and the
District of Columbia (both Democrats), and it
alleges that foreign payments to the president’s
businesses violate the US constitution.

A similar lawsuit that was brought against
Trump in January by plaintiffs including an
ethics non-profit group but this recent lawsuit
stands a better chance being the first
government action over allegations that Trump,
a Republican, violated the constitution’s so-
called emoluments clause.

Democrat attorney generals have been at the
forefront in litigating against Trump’s policies,
for instance, successfully blocking executive
orders restricting travel from some Islamic
countries. They are also resisting efforts to roll
back environmental regulations and insurance
subsidies under the Affordable Care Act.

The January lawsuit filed by an ethics non-
profit, restaurant group and hotel events booker
alleges that Trump violated the Constitution’s
’emoluments’ clause, which bars him from
accepting gifts from foreign governments
without congressional approval, by maintaining
ownership over his business empire despite
ceding day-to-day control to his sons.
