Donald Trump could face a tricky situation if elected president when it comes to potential conflicts of interest, said Andrew Rudalevige, Bowdoin’s Thomas Brackett Reed Professor of Government.

Speaking on NPR’s Morning Edition June 9, 2016, Rudalevige said most presidents have avoided conflicts by placing their investments in a blind trust under the control of a trustee, but that this may not work for Trump because of the nature of his assets. Listen to Rudalevige on NPR.
