Petition Background

President Trump just signed an executive order that could allow work on the Dakota Access Pipeline to proceed—threatening the water of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and 17 million people who live and work along the shore of the Missouri River.

Federal disclosure forms filed in May of 2016 showed that President Donald Trump held shares in Energy Transfer Partners and Phillips 66, both part of the DAPL entity. A Trump spokesperson announced--without offering any proof--that he had sold off his shares in Energy Transfer Partners, but not Phillips 66.

Trump's team has claimed he has no conflict of interest, but their word is not enough.

If the President has truly divested, he should easily be able to prove it and put the claim to rest. If he cannot, he has no business signing executive orders that cause conflicts of interest.
