Two new reports have confirmed it: Trump’s corruption is unparalleled in the history of the presidency.

Here are the facts, according to USA Today and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington: During his first year in office, Trump and White House staff promoted the Trump brand on at least 35 different occasions. At least eleven foreign governments paid Trump-owned companies and at least six foreign government officials visited Trump Organization properties. Political groups spent more than $1.2 million at Trump properties (compared to less than $100,000 in any previous year). And Trump sold $35 million in real estate in 2017, mostly to secretive buyers.

Not only is Trump continuing to profit from his companies — it’s almost certain that he’s using his position to further enrich himself and his family.

Our Constitution includes not one but two Emoluments Clauses that specifically prohibit the U.S. president from taking money or gifts, other than his salary, from either foreign countries or the U.S. government and state governments. By taking office without divesting from his business holdings — and by profiting from the presidency — Trump is effectively spitting on the Constitution. In fact, last year his company even said that it wouldn’t be “practical” to comply with the Emoluments Clauses!

So we’re building a grassroots movement to stop him — but that takes resources. We have to pay staff, engage legal advisors, research the law, build coalitions, spread our message, and much more — and as a people-powered campaign, we rely on grassroots contributions from supporters like you.
