Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State for 4 years. During that time her foundation accepted millions from the same foreign countries that she was engaging with while doing our governments business. And this is OK with the left. But the measures Trump uses to distance himself from his existing business’s is never going to be enough.

The workings of the leftist mind are truly confusing.

Trump's sons are not bound by the same legal ethical standards that professional trust managers must adhere to.

C'mon folks, this is basic common sense.
The good news for Trump is that he won so he gets to pick and choose the who and where when selecting his staff and his method of dealing with how and who of his business dealings.

The bad news for the Democrats, lets call them the losers, is they don't.

It is not a legal requirement, and most Presidents had the good sense to divest of possible conflicts and preserve that integrity. As it is, Trump cannot complain too terribly when he is (and he deservedly will be) accused of business and/or financial conflicts/manipulations.
It is ridiculous to claim professional trust managers exist due to "familial conflicts of interest". Typically families seek professional managers because the beneficiaries, like the Kennedys, have no interest or aptitude for handling the assets. That is clearly not the case with Trump's sons.

Enough with the false piety about previous Presidents avoiding conflicts of interest. JFK had no knowledge of his trust fund's assets? Please. Hillary had no knowledge of where her husband got those millions in speaking fees? Not likely.

As long as there is a square foot of property with the Trump name on it partisan Democrats will wail about conflict of interest. Trump shouldn't have to penalize his sons because he won the election.

BTW What is Roger Clinton doing with the money he gets from the deal the Clintons made to sell 25% of US uranium mining to a company controlled by the Russian government.

actually he's scared of the media. Which is why he cancelled the press conference. He doesn't want to have to actually answer any questions because he knows what he is doing is shady as hell.

Yeah, he's skeered of the media too.

I somehow doubt Trump is afraid of much of anything. The media has been after him since day 1. Both sides of the establishment the same. Trump ignored them and did his own rather successful thing.

I have no idea what Trump is doing that is shady as hell. Trump had a meeting with the press leaders. It didn't go exactly like the press wanted. Trump, not the media, will call the shots. For 8 years.
