American Bridge President Jessica Mackler issued the following statement:
“It’s clear from Donald Trump’s disastrous press conference today that he fully intends to cash in on his presidency. Following a shameless display of theatrics, Trump refused to separate himself from his business interests and sell off his ownership of the Trump Organization. He sent a clear message to the American people that he fully intends to use his presidency to enrich himself and his family — he’s just waiting 4 years to cash the checks.
“The American people deserve better than Donald Trump’s unethical, unconstitutional behavior. Until Trump sells his stake in the Trump Organization, he is in clear violation of his responsibilities to the people of this country and his duty to uphold the Constitution.”
