Conflicts of Interest for Donald Trump


Discussing President-Elect Donald Trump’s conflicts of interest, attorney Page Pate had this to say on CNN New Day Weekend with Christi Paul, “We’ve never had a situation where the President walks into office more concerned about what’s illegal or legal versus what’s ethical or not. There are not really any clear laws that prohibit Trump from being engaged in business while he’s President.”

Pate further stated that Congress should address this proactively by making it “clear that the conflict of interest laws that currently govern almost everybody else in the executive branch also covers a President Trump because, right now, that law is not on the books.”
