Isn’t this a conflict of interest?

A new article states “Lawyers representing President Trump’s company last month wrote directly to the president of Panama, asking him to intervene in a legal fight over the Trump International Hotel in the capital — and warning that the case could have “repercussions” for Panama’s reputation.”

The article later states: “The request was extraordinary: The U.S. president’s company was asking the leader of a U.S. ally to intercede on its behalf, disregarding Panama’s separation of powers.”

This sure sounds like a conflict of interest and abuse of presidential power.  Trump should have divested himself of all of his business interests.  Sad!
