Tracking Trumpís National-Security Conflicts of Interest

A global business empire raises the question: will the next presidentís foreign policy serve Americaís interests or his own?

Quote:
From close neighbors in Latin America to European allies in the fight against the Islamic State, Donald Trump has international entanglements like no previous commander in chief. Each of the president-electís business endeavors, critics say, offers an opportunity for foreign leaders and other actors to unduly influence U.S. policy through emoluments ó or potentially, even extortion. Keeping track of Trumpís national-security conflicts-of-interest will be no simple matter, observers say, unless and until he creates a truly blind trust for his assets. Though some potentially profit-inflected decisions have already attracted critical scrutiny, others have surfaced only in the international press, and still others may remain hidden by the Trump Organizationís opaque operating style.

What follows is as complete an accounting of Trumpís overseas financial interests as could be gleaned from open-source reporting, including the financial disclosure form he filed as a presidential candidate. Released by the Federal Election Commission, the form is light on details but provides broad estimates of Trumpís assets, income, and debt for the year ending May 2016.

Continued.....
Trump has decided to not place his business empire in the ethical hands of a truly blind trust. He has also refused to release his tax returns.

President Ronald Reagan was fond of using a Russian proverb ... Trust, but verify. (Доверяй, но проверяй)

Trump forces us to trust his ethical compass, and refuses to provide any means to verify his ethical compass.
