Giuliani says Trump should use a blind trust

Giuliani becomes the latest pro-Israel contender for Trump's secretary of state post, according to media reports, with the other rumored candidates including former USA ambassador to the UN John Bolton, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Sen.

Good-government types were already crying foul over Donald Trump's intention to put his children in charge of his business during his presidency.

Giuliani acknowledged concerns about the family business arrangement, but argued that a blind trust would lead to a different set of problems.

During an appearance on CNN's State of the Union Sunday, surrogate for President-elect Donald Trump and prospective attorney general Rudy Giuliani anxious that Trump's children would be "out of work" should the president-elect put his assets, including the company three of his adult children are senior executives at, in a blind trust.

So much for that blind trust!

Ivanka Trump, daughter of President-elect Donald Trump, arrives at Trump Tower, Friday, Nov. 11, 2016, in NY. These young Trumps were not elected, have never served in public office, have ZERO military background, and should not be cleared at the highest security levels in this country.

However, in an interview in March with The Times, Trump, asked about the North Korean threat to its neighbors, said he thought that America's allies might need their own nuclear deterrent.

Giuliani said he thought John Bolton, the former US ambassador to the United Nations, "would be a very good choice" for secretary of state.

Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, announced last week that Trump's three oldest children would control a "blind trust" for the president-elect.

"Now we are faced with the possibility that a son or daughter of the president will turn up in Moscow or Uzbekistan or somewhere else negotiating a deal on a new property that will bear the name of the president, and the full knowledge that the president really is an owner of the company", Trevor Potter, a former Federal Election Commission chairman and general counsel for George H.W. Bush and Sen.

"The man is an enormously wealthy man", Giuliani said, but said he does not see "real fear of suspicion that he's seeking to enrich himself by being rich". Having said that, I think we understand their frustration. Kushner is also involved with the transition team. The former NY mayor and federal prosecutor is a possible fit in the Trump administration for a post such as attorney general. "Sometimes you just have to take a look in the mirror and reflect on what went wrong".
