He’s now the president, but also still head of his companies.

At a news conference last week, now-President Donald Trump said he and his daughter, Ivanka, had signed paperwork relinquishing control of all Trump-branded companies. Next to him were stacks of papers in manila envelopes — documents he said transferred “complete and total control” of his businesses to his two sons and another longtime employee.

Sheri Dillon, the Trump attorney who presented the plan, said that Trump “has relinquished leadership and management of the Trump Organization.” Everything would be placed in a family trust by Jan. 20, she said.

That hasn’t happened.

To transfer ownership of his biggest companies, Trump has to file a long list of documents in Florida, Delaware and New York. We asked officials in each of those states whether they have received the paperwork. As of 3:15 p.m. today, the officials said they have not.

Trump and his associates “are not doing what they said they would do,” said Richard Painter, the chief ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush. “And even that was completely inadequate.”

      Didn’t Nixon try that same argument?

  • StoneyCurtisll

    That stack of so called “paper work” next to trump at that press conference was phony as a 3 dollar bill…
    They were guarded by his entourage and no reporter was allowed near them..

    Rump’s a control freak…even if he does file papers, we all know he’ll still be running the companies.

    Just more proof that he is an illegitimate president. If he doesn’t have to obey the laws, why should anyone?

      I hate those pesky stop lights when they’re red…think I’ll start ignoring them.

      Oh, and I hate paying taxes…could get a hell of a vacation each year with what my wife and I pay. We’ve always wanted to see Machu Picchu.

      Thanks for showing the way, Donald!.
