Today, President-elect Donald Trump was supposed to announce how he would untangle himself from his massive web of conflicts of interest. Turns out, he is NOT going to untangle himself at all or divest from his businesses, which means he could be still violating foreign bribery laws like the Emoluments Clause in the U.S. Constitution.
Trump will turn over his new businesses to his two sons. They will continue making new deals while he serves as president. Americans deserve better—much better.
In order to meet the requirements of the U.S. Constitution and avoid any appearance that he is making decisions that would benefit his companies instead of the American people, Trump must divest.
Luckily, Sen. Warren and Rep. Clark are leading an effort to pass the Presidential Conflict of Interest Act, which would require President Trump and Vice President Pence to divest from personal holdings that create conflicts of interest.
