This story has not received enough attention: among the numerous conflicts of interest which Donald has created for himself by being elected, there is one which he probably cannot get out of: his lease on his hotel in the District of Columbia.  This story on NBC News explains that he will violate the terms of his lease by becoming an elected official:

Steven L. Schooner, a professor of government procurement law at the George Washington University Law School, and Daniel I. Gordon, a senior advisor to GW’s Government Procurement Law Program (and President Obama’s first administrator for federal procurement policy) pointed out this week in Government Executive magazine that a provision in Trump’s lease with the General Services Administration states that “No … elected official of the Government of the United States … shall be admitted to any share or part of this Lease, or to any benefit that may arise therefrom…”

This provision appears quite plain and it behooves the General Services Administration to terminate its lease with the Donald before January 20.
