    Last Fall, Trump played a round of golf with Japanese President Shinzo Abe. As a gift, Abe presented Trump with a golf club valued at $3500. BEFORE he was inaugurated, as it is illegal for a sitting President to accept any contribution, gift, or other entity from a foreign donor valued at more than $390.

    Contrast that with Chinese National Johnny Hwang, a long-time good friend of Bill Clinton, who requested of Secret Service, and received, complete freedom of access to the White house for his buddy. This was before his re-election. After a number of Hwang "visits", a Secret Service Agent, understandably wishing to remain anonymous, revealed in disgust that the suitcase Hwang invariably carried with him was plum-full of large denomination U.S. Currency. Ostensibly to help fund Clinton's re-election. Rumored to be in the millions of dollars.

    The revelation resulted in a flurry of cover-up activity, claims and counter-claims, eventually resulting in Hwang taking the "rap" for Clinton, for which he essentially received a "slap on the hand", with official numbers regarding the illegal contributions as being much lower than was generally acknowledged by insiders.

    "John Huang (Chinese: 黄建南, born 1945) is a major figure in the 1996 United States campaign finance controversy. On August 12, 1999, John Huang pleaded guilty to a felony conspiracy charge for violating campaign finance laws and was sentenced to one year of probation. He was also ordered by U.S. District Court to pay a $10,000 fine and serve 500 hours of community service."
