Protect the Presidency from Financial Conflict

We the undersigned respectfully petition Congress to take proactive steps and protect the Office of the President from violations of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution (Article I, Section 9, Clause 8). Congress should, by resolution, make clear to President (Elect) Donald Trump that he must divest his business assets. Further, that if he does not divest or otherwise place his assets in a true blind trust, Congress will regard ANY dealings between his financial interests at home or abroad and any entities owned or controlled by foreign governments as potential violations of the Emoluments Clause unless he can prove they were arm’s-length transactions.

President Elect Trump is acting in a manner that is disrespectful and dangerous to the American citizens. He must divest or not assume the office of President. We need Congress to step up in a bipartisan way and enforce our Constitution.

Trump is a businesman, not a politician. A repitation is NOT his most important commodity. Only money is. He must not be allowed to turn our country in yet another source for his own enrichment
