Elijah Cummings suggested that if one traces where money related to President Trump’s business dealings leads, it will end up directly benefiting Trump financially.

Cummings implied that Trump has not fully separated his financial interests from his duties as President, and that his decisions could be influenced by impacts on his personal wealth.

By saying to “follow the money” back to Trump’s “pockets,” Cummings was arguing that the Emoluments Clause required the President to completely divest from his business activities and assets to avoid any conflicts of interest between his role as President and private financial gains.
