The General Services Administration has said that puts the president in compliance with the lease at the Old Post Office Pavilion, which is owned by the federal government. "That's clear, I don't need to embellish".
From a van parked across the street, he also projected the entirety of the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits U.S. officials from accepting foreign gifts. When Trump took office in January, he essentially became both landlord and tenant of the property, which sits just blocks from the White House. "Emoluments Welcome", said another, referring to the clause in the U.S. constitution that bars members of the government from receiving gifts from foreign powers.
Since taking office, the president has come under fire - and faces a lawsuit from the ethics watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington - for potential violations of the emoluments clause from payments by foreign diplomats and governments in his various hotels, particularly the one in the nation's capital.

Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin options for Seattle
Wilson's current backup is Trevone Boykin, who was arrested in March on marijuana possession and public intoxication charges. And the good news for him is that the Seahawks don't appear to have ruled him out as an option.
"That is one of the big things that I'm trying to do - using our artwork to explain these stories that are tricky" said Bell, an artist and filmmaker based in the District. President Trump has pledged to donate money from foreign governments to the United States Treasury.
Monday's display didn't last long because the hotel's staff is "pretty diligent about asking to take them down", Bell said, but that wouldn't stop him from doing it again. His favorite part of the night came, he said, when an open-top tour bus drove by and riders started to cheer.
Bell has said that projections are an effective form of protest because they send a message without vandalizing property. "We did it at the right time because everyone is just so utterly depressed and bummed out with what's going on".
