Donald Trump Accused of Failing to Report Gifts from Other Countries

Former President Donald Trump and his family received more than $290,000 worth of gifts from foreign governments during his time in office, according to a report released by the House Oversight and Accountability Committee. The report accuses Trump of failing to report over 100 gifts, including a gold golf club from the late Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe worth over $7,000, a $24,000 dagger from Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman, and a marble figure of the Taj Mahal valued at $4,600 from former Indian President Ram Nath Kovind. Additionally, two gifts, including a gold golf club and a large-scale portrait of Trump given by the government of El Salvador, have not been located by federal authorities.

The report states that not declaring these objects is illegal and shows a “blatant disregard for the law by the Trump government.” Furthermore, lawmakers are committed to finding the missing gifts and determining if they could have been used to influence the handling of the president’s foreign policy. The report also found that Trump failed to report 17 gifts from Saudi Arabia with an estimated total value of nearly $50,000.

US law prohibits the president and government officials from keeping gifts they receive during their time in office and requires them to report gifts valued at more than $415. Trump’s entourage has not commented on the report.
