Vanity Fair: The Trump Sons Are Expanding Like Crazy But Swear It’s Totally Legal

“The Trump family is learning how to navigate the line between politics and business. Donald Trump has chosen to retain his stake in his company, which means that the president stands to personally benefit from any gains made by the company through new ventures, partnerships, and expansion. And expansion is just what the Trump sons plan to do next.
News And Guts
President Trump's sons may be rapidly expanding their enterprise thanks to some people and places they encountered on the campaign trail.

Certainly seems like lots of questions about potential conflicts will be raised.

"Building new hotels, for example, could create issues — tax disputes, allegations of labor violations or environmental violations — that require federal departments to consider cases that could directly impact the president’s finances. And while the Trumps have vowed to sign no new foreign deals, pursuing a raft of new domestic contracts from coast to coast means the Trumps are likely to engage in negotiations with private developers, banks and investors who see additional benefits in doing business with the president’s company."
