Restaurant Group Joins Lawsuit Against Trump, Citing Unfair Competition

Restauramt group joins lawsuit against TrumpTwo plaintiffs involved in the hotel and restaurant industry have joined a lawsuit alleging President Trump is violating the Constitution, potentially bolstering the effort. The lawsuit centers on whether Trump is breaching the Emoluments Clause — a provision in the Constitution that prevents government officials from accepting gifts, benefits and the like from foreign leaders.

The Emoluments Clause is meant to ensure a president can't profit from his office. The lawsuit said Trump is doing just that because his hotels and restaurants do business with foreign governments.

The Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, which advocates for improving wages and conditions for restaurant workers, is one of the new plaintiffs to the lawsuit originally filed in late January by the government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
