According to "The Washington Post", the supreme court of justice in District Of Columbia (D.C.) and Maryland have announced that they will sue President Donald Trump this Monday. The assertion is that President Donald Trump has violated the anti-corruption provisions in the Constitution by receiving millions of dollars from foreign governments after moving into the White House.

The essence of the matter is that President Donald Trump chose to retain ownership in his own business empire when he was appointed president. Representatives from other countries are checking in at the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C.

and by doing so, it is indirectly generating a high income for President Trump.

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump assured them in January that he left the company's operations to the sons to avoid conflicts of interest, state prosecutors Karl A. Racine from DC and Brian E. Frosh from Maryland believe he has broken several of his promises to stay away from his old business.

Has Trump broken the emoluments clause?

"This case is all about the right of Marylands, D.C.s and all American citizens to have an honest administration," said Democrat Frosh to Washington Post. The so-called "emoluments clause" of the United States Constitution prohibits any electorate from receiving gifts of any kind from Royals or representatives of other states.

The emoluments clause orders the president to put the country first and not his own personal interests, says Frosh. According to the newspaper, the clause was added because a concern of that US ambassadors could be corrupted by rich European nations. For example, Benjamin Franklin had accepted a snuff box decorated with 408 diamonds from the King of France.

Washington hotel cashes in

"We go into this to make up the balance of power that Congress does not seem to want to have. We are suing President Donald Trump because the president has not taken the necessary steps to separate himself from his business interests, "said Racine.

The prime example of the lawsuit is to prove that business in D.C.

And Maryland has been adversely affected by the recent opening of the Trump International Hotel near the White House in Washington.

According to the lawsuit, the hotel shall have taken revenues from both a conference center owned by the District of Columbia and another subsidized by taxpayers in Maryland, especially when it comes to foreign governments representatives booking hotels in the capital. Kuwait's Embassy held a party at Trumps Hotel after having booked at Four Seasons. Saudi Arabia has also checked in on Trump International several occasions.
