Presidents and vice presidents aren’t above the law. As such, they should be subject to the same conflict of interest restrictions as any other federal employee in order to ensure they make policy with the American people’s best interests at heart.
Given the complexity of some presidents’ finances and holdings, it’d be unduly cumbersome for them to divest of all their assets or put them all in a blind trust. These regulations could limit the presidency’s accessibility to certain people, especially businesspeople and investors.
