If we strengthen emoluments laws itís not going to be to troll Trump it will be because we didnít think we had to spell out that the president should have the countryís interests first.
The norm since Nixonís second run. It wasnít done at all before that. Sixty years of federal taxes before that and they werenít shared. People can make the choice to never vote for anyone who doesnít show their taxes. Parties can refuse to allow anyone who doesnít.
