Donald Trump’s numerous conflicts of interest have become a major concern for the President-elect as he nears the beginning of his (undeserved) presidential term in just a few weeks. There have been several reports in which experts have predicted that these conflicts of interests will either land him in court or get him impeached almost immediately – but that hasn’t stopped Trump from being a complete idiot and refusing to cut ties with his businesses.
Tonight on Erin Burnett OutFront, footage of Trump’s New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Lago was aired, exposing a shocking moment from the President-elect. It turns out, Trump had given a speech where he openly praised Hussain Sajwani, a business partner from Dubai. While the footage was recorded without Trump’s knowledge by a guest at the party, you would think that the President-elect would have been more careful with his words – but unfortunately, Trump is a moron.
When Brian Stelter commented on the tape, he noted that this speech by Trump definitely validates the concerns that have been pouring in about Trump’s business interests and the obvious overlap with his role as President of the United States. Stelter said:
You can build the highest wall imaginable to restrict Donald Trump from his business interests. And yet he’ll still know what’s on the other side of that wall because he’s had these relationships for years.”
Exactly. While Trump’s team has stated that there was “no business conducted” during the New Year’s Eve bash, no one can deny what host Erin Burnett pointed out: it’s truly bizarre that a business partner would come all the way from Dubai to see Trump without conducting any business. Considering how dishonest and secretive Trump has been throughout his campaign and transition, we wouldn’t be surprised if Trump’s team is merely covering for him.

As this story starts making rounds over the internet and news networks, we can expect Trump to start denying what is a very obvious conflict of interest over Twitter or any other means possible – because that’s what he does every single time he gets caught in one of his scams.
