Senate Democrats are wanting to take a closer look at Donald Trump’s business ties.

Nearly two dozen Senators on Tuesday introduced a resolution that would allow the Senate to request that Trump put his assets in "simple, conflict-free holdings" according to a story in The Hill.

Trump has come under fire for potential conflicts of interest related to his business ventures, including his hotel in Washington, D.C. where foreign diplomats stayed because they said it was an "easy, friendly gesture" to the new president.

In the resolution, senators said that "the intermingling of the business of the Trump Organization and the work of government has the potential to constitute the foreign corruption so feared by the Founding Fathers and betray the trust of America's citizens.

The intent of this resolution is to prevent any potential misunderstanding or crisis with regards to whether the actions of Donald J. Trump as president of the United States will violate" the Constitution or federal laws.”
