RED ALERT! RED ALERT! Democrats are trying to defund Trump's golfing-spree!

Aside from the national security threats, as a candidate (criticizing Obama for golfing too much) Trump said hed never have time to golf as President. Instead hes golfed more than any other President at his own resort on the taxpayer dime. So domestic emoluments are a concern too.

Well, I started asking that question on the Hill. And to a person, Democrats were supportive. Jackie Speier, Ro Khanna, AOC, Ted Lieu, John Garamendi, Maxine Waters, Gerry Connolly, Tim Ryan, and Dean Phillips each offered varying degrees of support, but the issue was a little complicated.

...

Jeffries: Its a reasonable question, and I believe in fact there was a rider to that effect.

Stark: So what happened?

Jeffries: I think that it has made its way into an appropriations bill or subsequently will make its way into an appropriations bill connected to the Department of Homeland Security because we didnt do it The Department of Homeland Security, of course, has jurisdiction over the Secret Service the Secret Service is the entity to which there are We have done that in other instances with respect to Wilbur Ross and KellyAnn Conway, so I think its a reasonable thing to expect that a rider along those lines is forthcoming.


So, what do you think will it be? Aneurysm or heart-attack?
