End Trump's Conflicts of Interest
The Trump Organization is a worldwide real estate empire with businesses in at least 18 countries.
By refusing to sell his ownership of the Trump Organization, Donald Trump forces the American public to ask: Did he assume the presidency to advance America’s interests or his own? Moreover, his self-inflicted conflicts of interest are a clear violation of the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause, designed to prevent foreign governments from influencing the Commander-In-Chief. Yet the Trump Organization is set to receive millions of dollars from foreign diplomats who stay at its hotels, have foreign governments approve building permits, and give his family and business partners privileged access to foreign leaders.
Senate Democrats, led by Senators Warren (D-MA), Durbin (D-IL), Cardin (D-MD), and Merkley (D-OR) have introduced legislation, S. 65, that would require President Trump to disclose and eliminate any financial conflicts he has.
Senate Republicans must stand up and putUSfirst. In 2011, Cory Gardner read the Emoluments Clause on the House floor. Now, he has the duty to enforce it against a President riddled by foreign corruption.
As Senator Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell has the ability to immediately bring Senator Warren's bill to the floor and ensure that President Trump puts America before his own business interests.
We demand Senator Gardner cosponsor and Senator McConnell bring this legislation to the floor for an immediate vote.
Congress must act if Donald Trump won’t. Senator McConnell, protect American interests by eliminating Donald Trump’s conflicts. PutUSFirst!
