Beschloss on Trump’s Conflict of Interest: ‘We Have Never Seen Anything Like this Before’

‘We have never seen anything like this before’

BESCHLOSS: "We have never seen anything like this before, Mika, in all sorts of ways. And I think Mike Pence said it perfectly. I would suggest that we put him in charge of making sure that the business does not get mixed up with government. You know, usually in the past, at least in modern times, you've had a situation like John Kennedy in 1961, had a lot of money from his father. This was put in a blind trust. He had no idea what stocks his money was invested in, so that someone couldn’t say, you know, you’re getting involved in a war, for instance, that might increase the defense stock that you’re invested in."
