Dem Lawmaker Slams Trump With Bill That Will Force Him To Sell His Business

Democratic Rep. Dwight Evans introduced a new bill on Thursday that will force Donald Trump to convert all his businesses into cash and buy Treasury bonds.

Evans said in a release that “The No Conflict of Interest Presidency Act of 2017 requires the conversion of the Trump Organization’s businesses, which include real estate, golf courses, hotels, resorts and a range of other investments, into cash; with which he would then be required to buy treasury bills and widely diversified mutual funds, which are considered conflict free under federal law.”

Evan addressed the American public that are scared that Trump might be to caught up with his business interest.

“The No Conflict of Interest Presidency Act of 2017 aims to calm fears of conflict and collusion by creating a clear wall between President Trump’s duty to govern and his family and business interests. There is a big difference between campaigning and governing,” Evans said.

“It is time for President Trump to govern for the well-being of the American people,” he continued. “Their needs to be a clear wall, a clear line between President Trump’s business connections and his role as President.”

The possibility that the bill will pass right now are quite slim, as most Republicans will oppose it. But come 2018, if Democrats take back the House it will be a much simpler task to pass the bill.

Republicans will be forced to either defend Trump’s conflicts of interest or vote against the President.
