Senators, Please cosponsor -if you haven't already-S 65 - presidential conflicts of interest act. Please pressure fellow senators on the homeland security committee. Donald Trump's conflicts of interest are so HUGE it's ridiculous! This is America not Trumplandia! Please do everything you can to deny, delay, resist the Trump regimes crazy.
I support S.65 and it's companion bill HR 371, introduced to require the president and VP to disclose and divest financial conflicts of interest. Many suspect that President Trump has conflicts of interest that are not known. I want to be sure that White House actions serve and protect the American people, rather than personally benefit the president. Ask your members of Co guess to cosponsor and support these bills.
It's unfortunate that our congress has failed to move this forward. We are now seeing the results play out as it becomes more obvious every day that the president has conflicting business ties with his position in office. If he was at all a person of character he would've put his holdings in a blind trust, and moved on. The fact that he didn't shows a failure to take his new job seriously. He is showing us that his company holdings are still more important. He's not committed to public service, he's just got a hobby. Congress needs to pass this, if anything just to prevent future corruption on any side of the aisle when it comes to the presidency. The executive positions in the US government are positions are one of the highest forms of public service. Please restore that greatness instead of having it be a billionaire's hobby farm.
Yes to this all similar bills. This is bigger than Donald Trump because it sets a new normalized precedent that it's perfectly fine for elected officials, including the most powerful position in the country, to be possibly compromised by interests that violate the needs of the citizens. This would seemingly negate the entire "for the people" part of our government.
Disclosing tax returns must be a requirement. Conflicts of interest must be eliminated or all actions by the president will be questioned, regardless of merit. Divestiture must be a requirement of taking office.
I support S 65, the Presidential Conflicts of Interest Act, and urge you to vote in favor. A president who is unwilling to fully disclose or divest of his financial interests poses a real and immediate threat to our democracy.
