Trump’s con­flicts of in­ter­est

The Denver Post - - OPNION - Re: Jen­nifer Brown,

“Elect­ing to quit busi­ness,” Dec. 1 news story.

Does any­one re­ally be­lieve that Don­ald Trump will fully di­vest him­self of all his con­flicts of in­ter­est? A man who won’t re­lease his in­come tax re­turns — what is he hid­ing? A man whose chil­dren, son-in-law, and bil­lion­aire ap­pointees clearly have his ear. A man who loves his Trump-brand ho­tels and re­sorts and the for­eign diplo­mats and busi­ness part­ners who check into them. How will he fully and hon­estly dis­en­gage him­self from his busi­nesses, his brand, and his fa­vored as­so­ci­ates, and what ev­i­dence will we have for his claims to do so?

Mr. Toad of “Wind in the Wil­lows” fame clung to Toad Hall and his mo­tor cars; Mr. Trump shows no sign of chang­ing his ways ei­ther.
