"Several opinion pieces have questioned the constitutionality of Donald Trump continuing to profit from his many business ventures while he’s in office.

University of Kansas Law Professor Lumen 'Lou' Mulligan explains where those writers are getting the argument in the Constitution.

'The United States Constitution in Article I, Section 9, states that no person holding any office of profit or trust under the United States shall, without the consent of Congress, accept any present emolument, office, or title, of any kind, from any king, prince, or foreign state.'"
