In December, Trump explained he planned to put all his business assets in a trust and hand control of his company to his two adult sons.
"Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is bringing a federal lawsuit to stop President Trump from violating the Constitution by illegally receiving payments from foreign governments. The lawsuit will be filed in the Southern District of New York when the court opens at 9 AM on Monday [05:00 p.m. Moscow time]," the statement published on Sunday said.
According to CREW, Trump is currently getting "cash and favors" from foreign governments, through guests and events at his hotels, leases in his buildings, and valuable real estate deals abroad.
"Trump does business with countries like China, India, Indonesia and the Philippines, and now that he is President, his company’s acceptance of any benefits from the governments of those countries violates the Constitution," the watchdog said.
