Trump Profits From An Act Of War

There are reasons why we demand that those who serve in the office of President divest themselves of any financial conflict of interest. The president is in office to serve ALL Americans, not just one or two in-groups, his family, or himself.

Donald Trump recently told Fox News that he used Tomahawk missiles in response to Assad's sarin gas attack on civilians in Syria. Later, it was discovered that Trump actually owns stock in Raytheon, the company that manufactured the missiles used in the attack. Mr. Trump has yet to sell his stock and he just made almost 100 million dollars because of that attack. This means that we have a president who personally profits from war and from acts of war, not from peace. This is also one of the reasons presidents in the United States are required, by law, to divest themselves of any financial interest that creates a conflict of interest between themselves, their bank accounts, and the American people.
