Republican leader in conflict of interest

The Republican leader has come out to complain about what a business decided about his daughters business.

Is this one of the first conflicts that will put him in position to be forced to quit or divest from his businesses?

Will republican supporters continue to back a leader who still has not released his financial links or his tax returns and continues to mix personal business with politics?


Ethics experts have warned that Mr Trump's assurances of a "firewall" between his presidency and his family's financial concerns was insufficient. Now the president has provided a new, key piece of supporting evidence that could very well be cited in lawsuits trying to force Mr Trump to fully divest from his business empire.
The irony is that Mr Trump's efforts may backfire. Would any retailer want a partnership with Ivanka Trump knowing they risk the ire of the president and his supporters if things go sour?
