How Trump could use the presidency to help his own business interests

November 23, 2016, Los Angeles Times

Robert Lenhard is quoted in a Los Angeles Times article regarding President-elect Donald Trump’s potential business conflicts as president. According to Lenhard, “To my eye, the primary concern is ensuring that as he makes political decisions as president, that they’re understood to be broad policy decisions and not decisions driven by the desire to benefit financially from them.”

Given that Trump was elected by people knowing he has extensive business involvement, Lenhard says that he doesn’t see it as necessary for Trump to sell his companies and assets. He adds that the public might be satisfied with something like an agreement for a firewall between Trump and his children so that they do not talk about the family business.
