Trump to make major announcement … that he’s going to pretend his children can run a blind trust

 

By Mark Sumner  

After months of muddled talk, willful ignorance, and blatant displays of genuine conflict of interest, Donald Trump has announced that he has circled back to the same non-solution that he started with months ago.
