Why? He hasn't been charged with any crimes. He's been under investigation for years. His taxes have been under audit for years.

How can it be legal for a president to own a hotel but not legal for him to profit from it? Or illegal for certain people to stay there?

Being unethical is not the same as being illegal. Republicants have zero issues with ethics. But let somebody cross a border illegally then they have broken laws and must be locked up. Doesn't matter whether they crossed the border ethically or not.

I'm bumping this because the Scotland thing popped up in the headlines again.

Sure shows how much ass kissing is going on. And Trump is a man who responds well to it.

Does anyone doubt that Trump Org is getting a kickback from the airport too?

Do I need to find a link? You've probably already read it right?...
