Jared Corey Kushner, the husband of President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka and senior advisor to the President of the United States, has received La Orden Mexicana del Águila Azteca, i.e., the Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle, the highest order bestowed by Mexico on non-citizens.

Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the U.S. Constitution: No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

An emolument is in a figurative sense an emollient or ointment representing a noble title or royal privilege, as ointments and oils were very precious in those days.

As for example Jesus, who was said to be "the Anointed One" or in Hebrew "the Messiah" or in Greek "the Christ" [Matthew 26:6-7; Mark 14:3; Luke 7:37-38; John 12:3].

Of course there may be some consideration of monetary value to it, but an emolument is precisely the kind of honor Kushner accepted from Mexico in defiance of the Constitution of the United States and his office of trust.
