The accompanying Fox News video segment in her tweet featured Napolitano, who called Trump's move a violation of the Emoluments Clause.

"The purpose of the Emoluments Clause is to keep the President of the United States of America from profiting off of foreign money ... not in the campaign, but in some event or entity that he controls or is running," Napolitano told Fox News host Neil Cavuto.

"This is about as direct and profound a violation of the Emoluments Clause as one could create," Napolitano also said. 

Other Democrats have condemned Trump's move to host next year's G-7 summit at one his resorts.
