Conflict Of Interest Of No Interest To Trump

As Inauguration Day nears, neo-fascist con man Donald "Rump" Trump has postponed Thursday's announcement of his "plan" to insulate the Presidency from his business conflicts of interest. Who would be surprised if he never did?  He said last night that he would turn his company over to his two amoral sons Uday and Qusay, which isn't remotely a "blind trust" in any legal sense. His promise that his company won't do any new "deals" while he's in office is ludicrous, ignoring the profits that would roll in on his existing investments/ properties, especially after every tin pot dictator and special interest seeking favors steers business toward them (we've already seen that with his tacky, gilded hotel in Washington, D.C.)

Whatever the pathological liar says next month, he will almost certainly be in violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution the instant he finishes swearing to uphold the Constitution. He clearly didn't expect to face this problem, since he didn't think he'd win, only to build his brand. But, the complete narcissist that he is, he won't sell off his branded assets that define him and fill his empty soul, violation of the Constitution be damned.
