President-Elect Trump Needs to Divest from Conflicts of Interest
Sign the petition to support the Presidential Conflict of Interest Act! 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, there is a 3-step solution that involves you and Sen. Elizabeth Warren:
Sign our petition in support of Sen. Warren’s bill, 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.
Call your senators (202.224.3121) and demand they support Sen. Warren’s bill.
Forward this email to 5 friends and ask them to do the same.
Trump needs to put his assets in a real blind trust instead of benefiting financially from the presidency on the backs of working Americans. And he needs to release his tax returns like most presidents have done before him. Only then will the American public know whether Trump is acting in the interest of the people or his wallet.
