“It is 49 words in Article I of our Constitution:

“No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”

Trump wants the next G7 meeting to take place in Doral, FL. at ‘Trump National’:
“President Trump said Monday he would likely to hold next year's Group of Seven summit in Doral, Fla., Meaning he could personally benefit from one of the world's most prestigious gatherings of foreign leaders.
Chancellor Angela Merkel during a bilateral meeting at the G-7 conference, announced that Miami would be the host next year. He touted Trump National to Doral for its proximity.
"They love the location of the hotel," he said. "We have not found anything close to competing with it. Really you can be there in a matter of minutes after you land. " eek
