Report Says 'First 100 Days of Trump Administration Marked by Conflicts of Interests, Ethical and Legal Problems'
Washington, April 29 (RHC)-- The first 100 days of the administration are filled with conflicts of interests, ethical and legal problems, a new report found.
Instead of “draining the swamp,” President Donald Trump brought in an unpreceded level of conflicts of interest and ethical and legal problems to Washington in his first 100 days in office,” it said.
"Trump Inc.," released by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, CREW, analyzes those controversies that have surrounded Trump and his staff since he took office.
The core of these problems is rooted in the president himself. Trump controls an organization that operates businesses in at least 20 countries. However, he refused to follow the example of other modern presidents and sell his company before his inauguration.
“As a result, the American people have no way of knowing whether key decisions in the areas of taxes, regulation, environmental policy, employment and housing discrimination, foreign policy, trade, and many others are being made in the best interest of the country or in President Trump’s own financial interest,” the report states.
Trump’s refusal to divest himself from his business empire created a web of legal and ethical problems and set the tone for the entire administration.
“This failure of leadership resounds through the administration and the government as a whole, and ultimately harms our democracy and the interests of the American people,” the report concluded.
