    While still being able to use his office to benefit his business.

    "Hey dad, can you invite the ambassador of x country to the WH so we can get them to let us build a hotel?"

        Yea, giving control to his sons. Also claiming they will not discuss it with him.

        Oh, and an ethics advisor appointed by himself to keep himself in check.

        What could possibly go wrong?

          Let us know when something DOES go wrong

          BTW....wasn't something mentioned about NO NEW DEALS?

          That would shoot down your hypothetical

            You do know that if Trump keeps his hotels in his family's name he has to give up the foreign donations... right?

              FOCUS

              Not donations......but Hotel revenue and profits from foreign govts.

                Maybe this will help

                Trump attorney Sheri Dillon told reporters the company will not make new foreign deals during the president-elect’s term and will appoint an adviser who will be required to sign off on new domestic business agreements.

                    I think it is impossible to create no conflicts for ANY President.

                    I grew up where you bought your business insurance from a particular person because his brother could keep the health inspector off your back. So let's be honest that there are no real lily white political entities. They are all a bit tainted.

                    I think the Cheeto is doing about as much as he can but lets not throw roses at his feet for doing it, he knew which job he was signing up for.

                    I loved how at the news conference everyone was watching Donny's lawyer speak and Donny is looking around the room waiting for the next squirrel to run by. The only time he seems focused is when he is speaking.

                      Is your head in the freezer today, because you are really slow. Payments, profits, donations from foreign governments are not allowed in Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution.

                      No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.
                      Emolument: a salary, fee, or profit from employment or office.

                      Again what is the law? Would it apply to Obama if he had Hotels in Iraq and defended those hotels to keep the profits rolling in? Just like Obama gave up the $1.4 million award that comes with the Nobel peace prize. Although, don't know where the medal is, it should be a part of Historical Archives and not in Obama's personal possession.

                      The President of the United State cannot be in a position that Trump is in, where he can grant favor for profit.

                        Business revenues from his hotels are not considered an Emolument. Nice try.

                        Of course....nearly every significant donation to Hillarys foundation while Sec of State was.

                        Your FAKE Independence is reeking today

                          I know the Trump people are trying to spin emolument, but that is a fee for employment. If I pay you for any reason, I'm employing your services. END OF STORY.

                          Of course when the crooked GOP get through with Supreme Court appointments using talking heads from Fox News anything can happen.

                          Who knows maybe the requirement for the next president might be to have a net worth valued at more than $1 Billion.

                          With this new GOP regime who cannot follow the law, anything is possible. I can see Jim Crow coming back.
