house Bill H.R. 5182

Should Federal Agencies Report Expenditures at Trump Properties?

Argument in favor

The public needs to know the extent to which federal agencies are taking actions that benefit the Trump Organization or associated people and entities.

Yes but this should be across the board. With all public officials and not exclusively for trump.

Since DJT has not divested from his businesses they should be reported

Federal payments to trump properties are in direct violation of the emoluments rule. They should be reported and there should be legal action for every such violation! Trump and his family are getting rich on the taxpayers backs. This has to stop!!

Argument opposed

This bill a partisan political gesture that waste the resources of federal agencies by making them report expenses at Trump facilities and indirect expenditures.

Our laws exist to investigate crimes not individuals. The Crimes to investigate are why did Obama/Clinton spy on the Trump team? How many and what classified documents did Clintons illegal server contain when foreigners hacked it? Turn over the DNC computer to the FBI to find out who hacked into it. Our Gov’t cannot even enforce the laws it already has on the books. We don’t need more of it.

Federal agencies already report their expenditures and are audited. This is just a partisan bill to attack the president. When the tables turn and they will these same people will be screaming foul if this was put before them.

    Stop letting Trump write his own rules and enrich himself. Support and enforce the aptly named Corrupt bill.

    Why are the GOP okay with a sitting President profiting off of their position? This is just blatant corruption that the tax payers are paying for. It’s a direct violation of the emoluments clause in the Constitution.

    Yes. This just goes to transparency. We are all on board for that, right. It appears to be Mr Trumps option, not to divest. That doesn’t mean Zero accountability. #transparency

    There should be no expenses at Trump properties! Trump should NOT be profiting by holding meetings at his hotels and golf courses! Get on with his impeachment already!

    While Trump or any of his Trump business associates and/or family are in any form of public office, ZERO public dollars should be spent on Trump owned or affiliated properties/businesses. There is no need. There are plenty of other venues that can be used, and it opens the talk for unethical or even illegal behavior.

    The President still having a stake in these companies is in violation of the emoluments rule. Until he can provide proof that he no longer has ties to his businesses, as every president before him has had to do, federal agencies should have to report what they spend there.

    Absolutely, it's taxpayer monies that are being spent and I find it appalling that this piece of garbage in the White House is able to bill the government when the Secret Service has to be put up in one of his properties. He's bilking the system and getting away without showing us his tax returns.

    Once again, transparency in government demands that taxpayer money be accounted for and reported to the people who actually pay the bills: taxpayers.

    Yes, absolutely. Should be a requirement for all politicians regardless of who is in power.
