I don't think Trump has ever publicly stated that he plans to put his assets/business interests in a blind trust. He's got until inauguration to do
so because he's already engaged in unconstitutional activities due to his businesses.
It's not unconstitutional to have these businesses.
But, it does give him an easy way to accept money from foreign governments through these businesses.
Still, someone will have "to prove" he got money this way while he is President.
That means they have to look at his accounting. He hasn't even released his Tax Returns.
So, how would anyone know?
First, congress will have to pass a law requiring The Donald to open his accounting books to investigators.
Then, the FBI will have to wade through all his complicated finances to look for a smoking gun, like they did with Hillary's emails.
And then, if and only if, they find some money came from a particular foreign government, then they can start impeachment proceedings on the basis of
Look for alot of hearings on the issue, during Trump's time in office.
Since Trump likes to fight, it's likely he won't give in, but battle all the way through his term in office, to keep his businesses, and prevent
anyone from inspecting his books.
Whether Trump will be able to do anything else, while sitting as President, but engage in this battle, will be interesting to see.
