From today's New York Times.

Potential Conflicts Around the Globe for Trump, the Businessman President

Doesn't make accusations, but points out just how far-flung Trump's international business ties are and (my phrase) where the potential conflicts of interest are. Like in Turkey, where Trump himself said in a radio interview, “I have a little conflict of interest because I have a major, major building in Istanbul. It’s a tremendously successful job. It’s called Trump Towers — two towers, instead of one. Not the usual one. It’s two.”

Makes you "wonder" just how many of these might become 'targeted' due with his Policy-*wonks* implementations?

Like I said elsewhere, Trump will use the presidency to further enrich himself. Also, it is going to be messy for the rest of us...

There should be a rule that the president-elect is offered $25 billion to pass on the job. That would weed out people who were only in it for the money.

I don't think Trump is in it for the money. The money is the icing. I think Trump was in it to get his name in the History Book.

Donald J Trump, 44th President of the United States
