President Donald Trump promised to "isolate" himself from his businesses. He insisted that he was taking necessary steps to remove conflicts of interest.
In February, Trump had a clause added to his trust that says it "shall distribute net income or principal to Donald J. Trump at his request." That means Trump can get money from his businesses whenever he wants, and he doesn't have to disclose it to the public.
This is an incredible conflict of interest. Donald Trump still has an interest in helping his businesses make money -- after all, thanks to this clause, it's money he can use personally. You've heard of dark money. This is gray money.
How do we know it's not coming from business dealings in Russia? How do we know Trump's moves as president aren't to help his businesses, not the American people?
Here's the truth: We don't. And we should.
The American people deserve to know their President is working for them, not himself. Demand Trump fully divest from his businesses and release his tax returns to the public.
