Donald Trump’s conflicts of interest are making the US government seem a ‘kleptocracy’, says former White House ethics chiefThe former director of the US Office of Government Ethics said he was “embarrassed” by Donald Trump’s alleged conflicts of interest and he was concerned that the White House could be seen as a “kleptocracy”. Walter Schaub, who worked at the Office of Government Ethics since 2001, has given a series of candid interviews after he resigned this month about what he describes as the threats to democracy, including the President’s attacks on the press and judicial bodies. Speaking to the Guardian, Mr Schaub described the President’s use of his hotels to host diplomats and government business as “free advertising”, and “risks people starting to refer to us as a kleptocracy”.
