Trump failed to disclose dozens of foreign gifts – report – RT World News

The lavish gifts included a Saudi dagger, golf clubs and a painting of the former US president himself, House Democrats claimed

Former U.S. President Donald Trump and his family reported no more than 100 gifts worth nearly $300,000, House Democrats claimed on Friday, raising questions about whether it could have had a impact on Washington’s foreign policy.

According to a new interim staff report released by Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight Committee, the undisclosed gifts include 16 gifts from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, along with a Saudi dagger from worth up to $24,000 and two sets of swords with a total value of $8,800 listed among others.

Other allegedly undeclared gifts include a larger-than-life painting of Trump commissioned by the President of El Salvador, a $4,600 model of India’s Taj Mahal, golf clubs from former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, as well as books and artwork. articles by Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

“In total, records indicate that former President Trump and the first family received 117 undeclared foreign gifts, valued at approximately $291,000,” indicates the report.

This discovery “raises important questions about why former President Trump did not disclose these gifts to the public, as required by federal law,” says the report. He was referring to the Foreign Gifts and Decorations Act stipulating that US authorities disclose all such gifts above a certain minimum value, which is currently set at $415.

Representative Jamie Raskin (D-Maryland), a prominent panel member, accused the Trump administration of “brazen disregard for the rule of law” and one “systematic mismanagement of large donations from foreign governments.”

He also noted that some expensive gifts — including Trump’s portrait from El Salvador — were missing, adding that House Democrats are determined to find out if the gifts “may have been used to influence the President in his conduct of American foreign policy.”

The charges come after the Republican-controlled House Oversight Committee on Thursday released documents alleging members of US President Joe Biden’s family received more than $1 million from a business associate. with a Chinese energy company.

This sum would have been divided between the son of President Hunter Biden, his brother James Biden and his daughter-in-law Hallie Biden. The president himself dismissed the allegation as “not true,” while the White House spokesman accused House Republicans of “attack strangely” the Biden family.
