As a side note, I don't remember Obama tallying the number of foreigners, lobbyists, and others wanting to gain favors by buying the books he wrote before he was president...

But he DID cash those royalty checks!...

Obamas report $5.5 million in income on 2009 tax return



If Trump makes money over stuff he did before he was president and his hotel rooms are being rented to people wanting to gain favors (both foreign and domestic), that's bad...

But if Obama makes money over stuff he did before he was president and his books are being sold to people wanting to gain favors (both foreign and domestic), that's A-OK...

Because you know...That's "different"...
The funny part is that Trump owned these hotels long before he ever ran for president. As they are usually high end hotels, I suspect they have been accommodating foreign dignitaries before he ran just as they do now. But somehow we are to believe that now it is because he is president. Why were they staying at Trump properties before that? What favors were they wanting then?
