Trump released his 2016 financial disclosures

Trump released his 2016 financial disclosures Friday evening, detailing income and assets of his trust and post-election finances, as well as retirement accounts, up through April 15 this year. This does not include his tax filings, which he has refused to release.

Why it matters: Trump did not sell his business holdings when he became president, and instead put them in a trust, bucking experts' recommendations. And all this will accrue to him when he hands off the presidency to someone else, which is why critics are concerned visitors and foreign guests to his properties are currying favor with the POTUS, potentially violating the foreign emoluments clause of the Constitution.
