OK, those are what the dictionaries say. But, how can it be argued ?? Does it mean that the President is a) "unable" to have a conflict of interest ? Or could it mean the President, b) "may not" (or in the future tense will not) have a conflict of interest ??
I'll leave it up to the lawyers (thank Dog I decided to give up on that profession years ago) to argue about it: but I'm voting for option "B."
Of course, Donald of Orange won't agree and has even gone so far as to invoke the ghost of Richard Nixon ... (we know how that ended up, eh?).
No Donald, you CAN'T use the office to promote your businesses, endorsements, children or anything else related to your "business," (I guess that now means your life - get used to it). So, sell all your shit, tell the kids to get real jobs, get on with raping the country or decide if you want to give the job to Ayatollah Mike.
Of course, I'm old enough to recall the controversy of the meaning of "is."
Oh well ....... maybe the slogan should have been MAKE AMERICA GRIFT AGAIN.
