President Trump, trying to dig out from two new political holes of his own making on top of the expanding House impeachment inquiry, held forth for 71 minutes Monday during what was ostensibly a Cabinet meeting but ended up being a familiar torrent of grievance, defensiveness and bold statements about his expansive view of his own powers.

After reversing on his plan to hold the next G-7 summit at his Doral, Fla., golf resort, Trump dismissed criticism that he was profiting off his presidency.

"The Democrats went crazy," Trump said, commenting on criticism that he was using the presidency to enrich himself. "You don't think I get enough promotion? I get more promotion than every human being that has ever lived. I don't need promotion. It would have been the greatest G-7 ever.

"You people with this phony Emoluments Clause," Trump said, commenting on the clause in the Constitution that bars federal officials from taking "emoluments," or forms of payment or profit, from any "king, prince, or foreign state" as an ethics guideline.

Donald Trump cuts a deal with himself, virtually guaranteeing impeachment

  Donald Trump cuts a deal with himself, virtually guaranteeing impeachment The President is goading Democrats in the House to impeach him. And he's daring Republicans to risk their political careers by declaring him unfit for office. Mulvaney insisted that Trump was not breaching the constitution because the resort will run the event on a cost-recovery basis rather than seeking to make a profit.This could well be fudging it. After all, hosting such a high-profile event would raise the resort's profile and likely boost the number of future visitors - delivering a windfall to the Trump family.It doesn't matter either way, according to Napolitano.

“ You people with this phony emoluments clause ,” Trump said as he took questions from reporters during a Cabinet meeting . The president was defensive of his initial decision, asserting that hosting the G-7 summit at the Trump National Doral Miami resort would have saved taxpayer money because he

"I'm making a big difference for the country," Trump said. "So whether I lost $2 billion, $5 billion, more or less, it doesn't make any difference to me. I don't care. If you're rich, it doesn't matter. I'm doing this for the country."

President Trump directed some of his ire for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Burbank) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y).

"It's a very bad thing what they're doing. The president of the United States should be allowed to run the country, not have to focus on this kind of crap while, at the same time, doing a great job on Syria and Turkey and all of the other things that we're doing."

Trump said House Democrats are pushing to impeach him because he believes they wouldn't beat him in the 2020 presidential election.

"It's so illegitimate. This cannot be the way our great founders meant this to be," Trump said. "I think they want to impeach me because it's the only way they're going to win."
