Type: Conflicts of InterestJan 11 2017 Severity:
Trump boasted about turning down a $2 billion dollar deal with a Dubai-based developer during a press conference. It was not in response to a question or related to the topic at hand. Trump said, "I was offered $2 billion to do a deal in Dubai, number of deals. And I turned it down. I didn't have to turn it down because as you know I have a no conflict situation because I'm president." Though this deal would have been a conflict of interest by definition.
