Trump’s potential conflicts of interest

Some potential conflicts of interest between Trump’s business interests and his position as POTUS (source The Atlantic)

the director of the Office of Government Ethics, Walter Shaub, has declared Trump’s efforts insufficient, remarking, “I don’t think divestiture is too high of a price to pay to be the president of the United States,” and a number of Senate Democrats have introduced legislation that would force Trump to divest or face impeachment.
