We are members of NPR’s team covering Trump’s financial conflicts of interest, Ask Us Anything!
After the election, NPR News launched an initiative to focus a small group of reporters on the coverage of ethics and conflicts of interest in the Trump administration.
We are four of its members:
- Marilyn Geewax (/u/mgeewax) is the business editor who heads the team;
- Peter Overby (/u/peteroverby) is a veteran money-and-politics correspondent;
- Jackie Northam (/u/jackienortham) has followed the Trump Family’s foreign business ties;
- Alina Selyukh (/u/alinaselyukh) is the author of NPR’s Trump Ethics Monitor and other resources.
As President Trump approached his 100-day mark, we made this quick explainer video on conflicts of interest. We’ve been reporting a wide array of stories about the First Family and their financial ties: what we know and don’t know about their sources of income, what rules do and don’t apply, what promises were made and what accusations have resulted in lawsuits or investigations. Ask Us Anything!
EDIT: Hey all, things are starting to slow down so we're going to do a soft stop at 2 pm ET. But please continue to add questions and the team will check back in and answer what they can. Thanks for stopping by!
