The most bizarre moment of the press conference was when he bragged he just turned down a $2 billion private deal from a man in Dubai a couple of weeks ago - "a friend of mine. Great guy . . . . I didn’t have to turn it down.”Trump: “Does anyone really believe that story? I’m also very much of a 'germaphobe' by the way, believe me.” https://t.co/3UuEclMz3Y— CNN (@CNN) January 11, 2017
You basically turned down a bribe and are proud of it? And what deals has he accepted? He stressed time and time again that the conflict of interest laws do not apply to him.

I went through Baylor Law School and have now cracked 30 years in law. And now this man is making me study the Emoluments Clause in the Constitution for the very first time.
