Looks like Trump is hard at work trying to please many people.

Day one.

Bombing the sh*t out of ISIS.
Removal from the TPP.

And now he has resigned from 100s of entities leaving his sons in charge amidst the rhetoric of conflicts of interest.


President Donald Trump says he has resigned from positions in hundreds of business entities, according to a document provided to CNN by the Trump Organization.
The text of the 19-page letter reads: "I, Donald J. Trump, hereby resign from each and every office and position I hold" in more than 400 entities listed on the following pages.


As a massive doubter & opponent.

It's hard not to say so far so good.

If he doesn't divest, resigning is meaningless. He still knows what he "owns" and will profit from.

Looks like his sons will take over everything until he returns

With all his hate of CNN why did he send them this info?

the same could be said for any politician who owns stocks or who has a retirement account that invests in stocks.

Leaving his son's in charge still creates massive conflicts of interest since he doesn't go anywhere without them.

Carter had to give up his peanut farm but Trump continues to be exempt from the rules because reasons.

What the hell do people want him to do ?

You want him to give away his business, his money ?

Would you ?

Our leader doesn't have to be poor.

I just feel like Trump is a citizen of the United States of America.

Obama seemed to be a citizen of the World.

A difference of philosophy.

What was he thinking when he ran for president, that the constitution doesn't apply to the rich? Trump is in violation of the Emolument Clause of the US Constitution.

No, not necessarily. Only if they are introducing or voting on funding or bills that would benefit the companies that they own stock in. In those cases, they should recuse themselves. But, Trump owns properties all over the world, and the appearance of bribery makes the Office of the Presidency look bad.

Worse, what if one of his properties is threatened be terrorists because of Trump's policies?

Mr Obama seemed to have a massive conflict of interest which he pushed to the limit, and divided this country. I wont go into details as this isn't the mudpit. But he cost me personally, in close friendships and money

No he is following the rules your bias of Trump distorts reality, I think you're the one causing the Mandela ripple effect.

And he sent them to CNN to shut them up.

Anymore excuses??

Waaa waaa

Our forefathers never intended for the President to be a lifer politician with no assets or occupation.
Many of our presidents ran their farms and other family businesses at the same time they served as president.

It is a 4 to 8 year job - not a career.
A president needs a life and income to go back to after serving.

Our forefathers never intended for a former president to use the rest of their life making money giving speeches and writing books either.

a reply to: windword How can anyone ever ever make the office look worse then it was before Trump Took office. It was the laughing stock of the entire planet.
The clown is down,
Now the Honorable Trump wears the crown,
The deuce is gone,
We have the Ace in now,
Read em and weep
