From United Press International:
A spokesman for Donald Trump said the president-elect sold all of his stock holdings in June, which could help him avoid potential conflicts of interest.
The announcement comes after Trump on Tuesday morning said he wants to cancel the government's order for the development of a new Air Force One, citing a $4 billion cost.Obviously someone asked if he owned stock in Boeing or a competitor.
The answer was no, which led to this revelation.
Now then, if I were running for president, I would wait until my election and then go through the hassle (and likely red ink) of dumping my stocks.
Not President Trump.
He was confident he would win.
So much for the emoluments angst.
And so much for this summer's Fake News about him not being serious about winning.
Putting his company in the hands of his three eldest children and whatever other money he has in a stock index fund would further insulate him from conflict of interest charges.
Have a little fun. Read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
