This is an exchange on the Constitution's Foreign Emoluments Clause between Seth Barrett Tillman and Michael Stern on Stern's Point of Order blog.
Tillman takes the position that the Foreign Emolument Clause's "office ... under the United States" language does not reach the presidency or other elected federal positions. Stern defends the prevailing view: the Foreign Emoluments Clause embraces the presidency.
