Is Trump's Turkey/Kurd policy intended to benefit Trump family business interests at the expense of US foreign policy? 🐷
"Thank you Prime Minister Erdogan for joining us yesterday to celebrate the launch of#TrumpTowers Istanbul!" Ivanka wrote in April 2012. The construction—made up of two conjoined towers—is one of seven current Trump Towers locations.
"Multiple investigations and reports allege that Trump has been personally profiting from the presidency, using the office to bolster income at his resorts, hotels and other businesses. Foreign officials, for example, have been spending huge sums at his properties, in an effort to ingratiate themselves with his administration.
Ryan Lizza, Politico's chief Washington correspondent explained on Twitter that situations like this "is why presidents divest."
"It is crazy that a president is making national security decisions like the one tonight when he has lucrative business relationships at stake in the country that will benefit," Lizza added."
