Government contract laws are no joke

As a former military member and government employee I was often informed of the seriousness of government contracts, and making sure the law was followed. I was glad to see that President Trump did not try to proceed with awarding himself a contract to host the G7 summit at his Doral Resort. The emoluments clause of the United States Constitution forbids the president from making money for or through official acts. A Doral based G7 summit would have been the current president brazenly breaking the law again. Even a little bit of respect for the law should make us all feel good these disturbing times.
