RNC Holiday Party Held At Trump Hotel, What Conflict Of Interest?

The RNC is having a Holiday Party, wait until you hear where they're having it. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"President-elect Donald Trump is doing exactly what he always said he was going to do with his company, the Trump Organization. But he’s spinning it as a new decision — and the press is buying it.

The New York Times, citing unnamed sources, reported Wednesday evening that Trump won’t sell his stake in his company. His adult sons will run the business, but he won’t transfer ownership to them. And he certainly won’t be doing anything remotely resembling divesting or installing an independent administrator to run the Trump Organization.

It’s a plan that does almost nothing to address the massive conflicts of interest inherent in owning a real estate and branding business while serving as president of the United States.
It’s also the same thing he’s been promising to do for months.
You don’t need to rely on unnamed sources to know that Trump plans to have his adult children run his business while he’s in the Oval Office. He said so on live TV during a Republican primary debate in January. He said so in September. His son Donald Jr. has said the same thing. On Nov. 10, two days after Trump won the election, his attorney said the president-elect’s children were already running the business with, he claimed, no involvement from their father. (Heightening the conflicts of interest is the fact that his three oldest children are also on his transition team’s executive committee.)

The only notable difference reported in the New York Times story is that Trump’s daughter Ivanka will also step aside from the business. Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, are reportedly moving to Washington, D.C., to work in some as-yet-to-be-determined roles in her father’s administration. (Kushner’s potential position brings its own multibillion-dollar conflicts and, given his marriage to Ivanka, may also violate anti-nepotism laws.)
And the president-elect’s team is making sure reporters know he may still change his mind. “No final decisions have been made,” Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks told HuffPost. Hicks added that, as previously announced, Trump will publicly announce his plan on Dec. 15.

“This leaves us exactly where we thought we would be,” said Noah Bookbinder, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. “It is, assuming this is what he announces next week, an entirely inadequate approach to avoiding conflicts.””*

    We know Cenk, Trump is bad but let’s talk about the real problem Hillary
    and Obama~Jimmy Dore

    • Posted by grah55, at Reply

      Did Dore actually say that? if so link please.

    • Posted by Dumdumdumdum Dum, at Reply

      +grah55 Look at his videos before the election and after the election and
      maybe even now. His videos are mostly bashing the DNC,Hillary, or Obama.
      Hardly any bashing Trump or the gop.

      So he might as well have. He was scared of a demon while Satan waltz right
      in. But hey Jill Stein 2038

      wow. you are SO edgy!

      you realize how unoriginal and redundant you sound, right?

    • Posted by Dumdumdumdum Dum, at Reply

      +Michael P I usually see you around commenting but not saying much . What
      gives?
      I do say it a lot because still he bashes them but gives no answers. If I
      just watched Jimmy (which I watch none) I would think Hillary won and
      that’s why he is still bashing her and not Trump. I know I would if she
      won. She didn’t but yet, you know.

      Again it’s nice seeing you around AGAIN.

    WHY are you making small-time talk of aspect of the election when The
    Washington Post dropped a rather huge bomb that illegitimized the entire
    election. The Daily Beast has very strong opined piece explaining more
    closer to the surface what the Russian hacking issue really means. THIS is
    the story. Maybe you’re doing it now, waiting for Monday and more news to
    trickle in. I watch every single episode and hit like on them all. Please
    do not drop the ball on this. The country is acting to slow to mobilize
    public and quite frankly, mob opinion, on exactly how this presidential
    cycle has to be tossed out.

      Where’s the evidence? And do you know who owns the Washington Compost?

    • Posted by Nijastan K., at Reply

      The same people that claimed Weapons of Mass Destructions in Iraq are
      claiming Russian involvement with 0 evidence. I’m not sure how you even
      remotely think a “bomb” was dropped here. This will only help Trump. Don’t
      you notice a pattern here? EVERY SINGLE attempt by the Washington Post to
      character assassinate Trump has backfired and only helped him. Don’t you
      people think a new strategy is in order… like focus on his policies
      instead of claiming racism, sexism, or some other isms that clearly has not
      been working.

      And out of all the news organizations, Washington Post is the most biased
      tabloid trash ever laid eyes upon. No one even takes any of their BS
      seriously.

      why isn’t this news? don’t take this as an attack. I’m just asking.

    • Posted by zenman5910, at Reply

      Perhaps it is because Trump represents everything the constitution warns us
      to avoid at all costs and will be the undoing of America?

    let the republican scum rot cenk, let them get fucked, stop trying to reach
    out to such spineless vermin, they are not worth it. When the trump admin
    leaves them with nothing, in the open to dry, tell them ” I told you so”
    and walk away, don’t help them, some people only know the taste of their
    own medicine, and the vile hateful republican/neo-nazi vermin are those
    type of people. *Let them rot!*

      Sam I know that they will pin it on Obama somehow, remember some of these
      people believe 9/11 was Obama’s fault.

    • Posted by Sam, at Reply

      +Eduardo Alfonso exactly. they have left the realm of humanity a long time
      ago, I have no compassion for the wilfully ignorant, let them rot.

    Cenk, my man, you still don’t get it. People don’t really support Trump
    because they hate the establishment and money in polities. That was Bernie.
    All this guy has to do is keep acting like a tough guy and blame everything
    on minorities. For decades the right has built up the notion that
    rich=smart. So he’s simply filing his cabinet with “smart” people. These
    idiots will applaud as he and his swamp monsters take everything this
    country has left.

    The hypocrisy is staggering. It’s killing me. If Obama had done any of he
    same things Trump is doing the media would lose their minds. When Trump
    does it everyone says, “That’s just Trump being Trump.” Nothing is going to
    change until the media and the American people hold him to the same
    standards they hold other politicians. Unfortunately the fact that Trump
    isn’t a politician is proving to be a huge advantage because that is what
    people liked about him. The reality is he is doing the same things a
    corrupt politician would do but worse. I was willing to give him a chance
    at first too but he hasn’t even been sworn in yet and he has already gone
    above and beyond what I feared he might do when it comes to filling up the
    swamp. Also, he isn’t even president yet and he went ahead and did that
    terrible Carrier deal which now incentivizes companies to announce they are
    leaving the country in order to get a better deal. He didn’t even require
    that Carrier keep all of their jobs before giving them that giant tax
    break. He had all the cards in the negotiation since Carrier has defense
    contracts with us. Trump could’ve threatened to pull that contract if they
    didn’t keep all jobs but he didn’t even bring it up. Trump is bad news and
    things are going to keep getting worse when he takes office

    More fake news from the Dung Turds.

    • Posted by EddyCurrents, at Reply

      Which part is fake, little willy

    • Posted by William Little, at Reply

      MSM has already apologized for the false news that there will be a party
      for the RNC at Trumps Hotel.

    • Posted by William Little, at Reply

      You can look that up… More dangerous fake news compliments of the Clinton
      “Never Ending after losing” Campaign

    • Posted by EddyCurrents, at Reply

      +William Little You said” More fake news from the Dung Turds”. Now to
      repeat the question and qualify – which part is fake, meaning, what did
      they just say that you are claiming as being fake? Be specific. Is the RNC
      not holding their annual Xmas party at Trumps hotel in Washington? Man up
      bro, tell us what was fake.

    Right wing Trumptards triggered by the truth.

      doxide he’s having a holiday party at his own hotel…

      Hawthorne.. why did Democrats pay comet ping pong for parties BEFORE the
      election??????????? Isn’t that lining their friends pockets?!

    • Posted by Paleo bro, at Reply

      doxide…Why would I be triggered by #LoserCenk complaining about RNC
      throwing a party at the President’s house? That’s normally what people do
      when the throw house parties…they invite people to their houses.

    I got into this so I can overtake that Mexican rapist Carlos Slim and be
    the world’s richest man. I’m too much of a loser to do it any other way so
    I will turn this country to a kleptocracy. That’s why I appoint all these
    Goldman Sachs economic hitmen to my cabinet. Change you can believe in…

      Don The Con bet Don says this to himself every night

  14. Posted by ssn90, at Reply

    Its a total misrepresentation — thanks to Trump, RNC has been quite
    subsidized by using Trump hotels & Trump has himself put atleast $10
    million into the campaign. They spent 1/3rd what Hillary spent on her
    campaign… self dealing yes — but why rent a 3rd party hotel when it is
    going to cost more..?

    TYT should try to find out the entire story…

    • Posted by g w, at Reply

      No story should be bothered to be found. Even other hotels may cost more,
      Trump hotel is still not a choice. This is like universal common sense.
      Common sense comes with a reason. And now so many American people are
      derailing from common sense. Pathetic.

    • Posted by g w, at Reply

      Now it seems that it is not true. So this common sense is well kept. Then
      the question is that why you don’t think it is common sense and decide to
      defend it.

    From our pocket (via taxes) to his pocket (tax free). Think about it.
