Krauthammer: Trump's Ability to Separate From His Businesses as POTUS 'An Insoluble Problem'
"I don't think it can be done," syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said of president-elect Donald Trump's ability to become completely removed from his business empire as president of the United States.
"I don't think this is a complicated problem, I think this is an insoluble problem," Krauthammer said.
"As he himself has said in many of the depositions... the value of his company fluctuates according to perception. The main element of the value of his properties has to do with his name," he said.
"Normally... you sell everything because you cant have a blind trust for a business that's so visible."
Krauthammer said Trump would "basically look back on 30 years of his life he built this [and say] 'that's over forever' I'm going to liquidate my holdings and from now on, I'm president and president only."
"Unless he does that, there is no answer to this. Every time he makes a phone call to a head of state where he has a business interest, there will be questions."
