Every Voice Praises Senators for Keeping Pressure on Donald Trump to Sell His Businesses

December 16, 2016 | Laura Friedenbach

Washington, D.C.—Every Voice released the following statement praising Sen. Elizabeth Warren and her colleagues for continuing to pressure President-elect Donald Trump to sell off his businesses to ensure his personal interests won’t corrupt his administration.

“Until Donald Trump sells off his businesses and puts them in the hands of an entirely independent trustee, there will be a cloud of corruption over his entire administration that will impact his ability to serve people’s interest and represent America on the world stage,” said David Donnelly, president and CEO of Every Voice. “We applaud Sen. Warren for this legislation to require Trump to take action and we hope her colleagues on both sides of the aisle will vote on and pass it immediately.”

On Thursday, Every Voice joined five other organizations to deliver 500,000 petition signatures to Trump properties around the country calling on him to sell his businesses or for Congress to act if he doesn’t.
