He has resigned from every position in the Trump organization. As such, he receives no salary from the Trump organization. He does receive pension from the Trump organization.

He's the leaseholder on the DC Hotel. As President of The United States of America, he's in violation of the law. PERIOD.

The lease is with the Trump organization, not to a specific person. Does anyone know how long this lease lasts for?

Having a U.S. president operating a hotel that advertises his name in giant letters on a government-owned building flies in the face of the federal prohibition of government employees holding government contracts, not to mention long-standing norms for preventing conflicts of interest. In fact, the 60-year lease agreement between the GSA and the Trump Organization plainly states that “no … elected official of the Government of the United States … shall be admitted to any share or part of this Lease, or to any benefit that may arise therefrom.”


Donald Trump may have, as you say, resigned, but he has not divested. He still owns a share in the DC hotel. Nothing has changed since his inauguration on that front.


"The language could not be any more specific or clear," they write, having first raised the issue in a November 15 op-ed in the Washington Post. "Donald Trump will breach the contract on Jan. 20, when, while continuing to benefit from the lease, he will become an `elected official of the Government of the United States.'"

You really think he became president to make money? He lost a few million on the hotel at the end of 2016.

Full communication is shown here.

Again, this is a non issue like tax returns. How about we look at what he is doing for the country like instead of a trillion dollar package like Obama 60 billion, although small in the grand scheme, was cut from the Federal Debt.

It is going to be a loooooong 8 years for folks like you.

Donald Trump still is the leaseholder and has not divested from his DC Trump International Hotel.



Documents now show that the president's son, Donald J. Trump Jr., is the new president of the company operating the D.C. hotel.

Only public companies have shares. Private companies do not have shares. Donald Trump has no shares in the Trump organization. One solution is Donald Trump change his last name, like George Soros did when he changed his last name from Schwartz to Soros.

It sure isnt. I'm at a conference and the lawyer who filed this lawsuit just ranted against Trump for a large portion of his speech (which was completely irrelevant to what this conference is covering).

He then ranted about how horrible turning away from globalism is which again has nothing to do with this conference which is supposed to be about Federal Contracting...

It's kind of ironic because Trump is scheduled to be in the same city today...

I didn't mean stock option shares. I meant that he still owns the corporation and "shares" in its profits. He hasn't divested.

The President of the company managing the Trump International Hotel is not the owner. Donald Trump still owns that business and shares in the its profits, whether or not he is an employee of that company. He hasn't divested.

The Trump organization is his family's company. It was founded by his grandparents in 1923. He is a member of his family. Does he work in it? No. Does he own it? You bet he does. He is a Trump after all.

Everyone loved Trump before he ran for president. Now half the population hates him.

He gets paid less and he's not keeping it anyway.

He's not more famous, but rather more infamous.

If he wanted more power and control, he would have become a banker.

No to all that you said.

Have what? Fortune and fame, power and control? Apparently not enough.

I can't prove it without his recent tax returns, which I would need a professional to interpret for me, but I'm betting that Donald Trump didn't divest his business interests because he couldn't. He owes more than he owns, and therefore, can't sell out.

Various (high) crimes and misdemeanors, as well as The Emolument Clause, a few times and over. You'll see, in time. These things take time, especially when the majority of lawmakers are standing in the way of investigations, and the President himself is using his position. It took years to impeach Nixon.

It took 2 years to impeach Nixon. There was no internet back then. These days with internet, it would have taken a week tops to impeach Nixon. There is no evidence Trump took an emolument from a foreign state.
