Donald Trump Says He’ll Quit Business; Questions Remain
Mo’ money, mo’ problems. The president-elect announced via Twitter that to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest, he’ll “leave” his business and focus on governance, without offering details. As he assembles the richest cabinet in modern history, Trump has yet to fully address the rampant conflicts of interest involved in his empire — even if his children run it. The Office of Government Ethics praised the move in Trump’s own style on Twitter, noting that only full divestiture — which he hasn’t yet promised — would resolve the issue.
