ACTION: Stand with Senator Warren and other congressional Democrats to make Trump disclose and divest. Sign this petition to Congress: "Ensure the safety and security of the United States by immediately passing a bill forcing the president, vice president and their families to divest all assets that create financial conflicts of interest and strengthening rules against executive branch corruption."
BACKGROUND INFO: Trump likes to claim that, as president, he is exempt from federal conflict-of-interest law. But a government watchdog filed a lawsuit just days after the inauguration claiming that Trump is in violation of the Constitution.
Trump owes nearly $1 billion in debt and has projects all over the world. The lawsuit from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) maintains that any payments to Trump from foreign entities violates the anti-bribery “emoluments” clause of the Constitution.
A president using his power to enrich himself while indebted to foreign governments is not normal, and we cannot let Washington Democrats and the corporate media pretend it is.
Sen. Warren has introduced a bill that would close federal law loopholes and force Trump to disclose and divest. We need to get behind her and make it clear that Donald Trump is putting America’s safety and security at risk in order to line his own pockets.
Thanks to Credo Action for this action idea.
