We don’t know just how vulnerable @realDonaldTrump may be to financial blackmail, or how much he may be profiting off policy decisions. We can't be sure, because he won’t show us his tax returns or get rid of his personal business interests. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/…
I first introduced the Presidential Conflicts of Interest Act a few weeks before @realDonaldTrump was sworn into office. The legislation would have forced the President, VP, and their families to disclose and divest financial conflicts of interest.
But Congress didn't pass the Presidential Conflicts of Interest Act. And @realDonaldTrump didn't divest or disclose. So the country has spent the past 2 years watching his administration stumble from one ethics scandal to another:
Companies shouldn’t be able to grease the skids by spending money at @realDonaldTrump’s properties. But earlier this month, @TMobile admitted it spent close to $200,000 at Trump’s DC hotel while the Admin considered its $26 billion merger proposal. washingtonpost.com/politics/t-mob…
The government of Saudi Arabia shouldn’t be able to influence public officials by renting out 500 rooms at @realDonaldTrump’s hotel. washingtonpost.com/politics/saudi…
Members of @realDonaldTrump’s Mar-a-lago club shouldn’t be able to worm their way into running the VA without any public oversight or accountability. newsweek.com/democrats-watc…
.@realDonaldTrump is running the most morally bankrupt administration in American history. It's time to restore trust in our government and public officials. Congress could start by passing my Presidential Conflicts of Interest Act, which I reintroduced this week.
