GRADING PRESIDENT TRUMP'S PERFORMANCE
FACTS ARE VERIFIED WITH LINKS TO LIBERAL, INDEPENDENT AND CONSERVATIVE SOURCES
TRUMP'S FOUNDATION AND BUSINESS: A
10/30/16: Trump announced he is leaving his businesses to focus on presidency. "I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to make America great again," he said in a series of early morning tweets. "While I am not mandated to do this under the law, I feel it is visually important, as president, to in no way have a conflict of interest with my various businesses."
12/24/16: President Elect Trump announced that he decided to dissolve his charitable Trump Foundation to avoid ‘even the appearance of any conflict with my role as President’. This was a smart move. Maybe Hillary Clinton should have done the same when she became Secretary of State.
1/11/17: Donald Trump gives his hotel profits generated by foreign government payments to the U.S. Treasury (the American people) as part of a plan to avoid possible conflicts of interest
6/16/17: President Donald Trump outlined the financial health of the business assets he placed into a trust when he took office. The information comes in a new financial disclosure he voluntarily made to the Office of Government Ethics. The documents cover January 2016 through this June. The report showed Trump resigned from more than 500 positions, many of them a day before his inauguration as president. Trump listed at least $315 million in liabilities, about the same as in a report he filed last year.
