In other blatantly obvious news, water is wet, fire is hot and Trump loves the uneducated.

A new report from the nonpartisan non-profit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) shows that President Trump has more than 2,300 conflicts of interest since he’s taken office — and counting. The conflicts stem from the president’s ties to his businesses, despite his claim that he divested when he took office.

According to the study, the president “has created an environment where the actions of his administration, and those trying to influence it, can benefit the globe-spanning real-estate and branding empire that he still profits from.” The report highlights over 2,300 specific conflicts of interest, but makes a point to note that the conflicts of interest that Trump has created are “at some level immeasurable.”

We don't care. He's not Hillary, and that was the choice.
Perhaps Dems can give us a better choice in 2020.


Meanwhile, the number of 401k millionaires and IRA millionaires has just reported an all time high. And unemployment is at an all time low so there will be even more coming. We're good.

We? Maybe YOU don’t care. But YOU definitely don’t represent the vast majority of Americans that DO care. Enjoy denialism... while you still can. Try listening sometime.

If he truly divested interest from his properties, there is no conflict of interest.

He had to or he wouldn't have been able to run as a candidate.

I just visited a link to news report and it appears the vast majority of these "conflict of interest" accusations stem from people staying at or visiting Trump properties. Pleeeasssee.



What's next?

Man! Where were you when Mueller was investigating? This would have surly brought Trump down!

Uninformed Democrats care a lot. They are just as outraged about this as they are.... well, everything else.
Republicans don't care. Trump is not Hillary, and that is why he is President. If the Dems run someone like her again, they will lose again.

And nobody cares unfortunately, especially anyone who can do anything about it. You listening, McConnell?
