Tracking Trump’s Conflicts of Interest

Sunlight’s “Tracking Trump’s Conflicts of Interest” project provides a free, searchable database detailing President Donald J. Trump’s known business dealings and personal interests that may conflict with his public duties as President of the United States. The project also documents news coverage of these potential conflicts. As we continue to learn about the First Family’s business holdings, the database will be updated. Read our reporting to stay current on related news, explore our database, and learn more about the project or our methodology. You can also contact us if you’re familiar with any of the conflicts we’re tracking.
