President Trump has refused to divest himself of his business holdings since taking office, creating clear conflicts of interest and breaking decades of previous practices. American Oversight is investigating the ways in which the president and his family profit off of public service and whether or not foreign officials are using Trump properties to curry favor with the administration.
American Oversight is seeking records related to Trump’s businesses, specifically if cabinet members or agency officials have received guidance about frequenting Trump properties and whether agency employees have stayed there. We’re also calling for federal, Florida and New York State law enforcement officials and prosecutors to investigate whether domestic and foreign interests have used Trump properties, including the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, and the Trump National Doral as a means to bribe the Trump administration to pursue favorable policies and award contracts.
Until President Trump divests himself from his businesses, the conflicts of interest will continue.
