The President just got his first lawsuit in office, for allegedly violating a clause of the Constitution which prohibits federal office holders from making money off of foreign powers. Examples included in the suit filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington include leases held by foreign governments in Trump Tower, room reservations in Trump’s D.C. hotel and payments from foreign governments, rebroadcast episodes of The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice and more.

Per CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta: “POTUS has resigned from his businesses, according to WH Strategic Comms director Hope Hicks.”
Let’s see what happens…
