WASHINGTON – Yesterday, Donald Trump was supposed to have a press conference to explain to the American people how he would address any conflicts of interest as president. He cancelled that press conference, leaving voters, the media, and electors in the Electoral College clueless about how he will deal with his conflicts of interest. It’s not just about Trump profiting off of the presidency – which he is already doing.
It’s about preventing a constitutional crisis where the President could be in violation of the constitution from the minute he takes the oath of office. It’s about preventing a national security incident where Donald Trump is making decisions that benefit a foreign government or a foreign debtholder instead of the American people.
The DNC today released a new video explaining how Donald Trump’s business interests are creating countless conflicts of interest that could compromise our national security and could lead to a constitutional crisis.
