CNN Money: @POTUS retweets Trump blasting Nordstrom
Larry Noble, the general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan organization of election law experts, said Trump's tweet was "totally out of line."
"He should not be promoting his daughter's line, he should not be attacking a company that has business dealings with his daughter, and it just shows the massive amount of problems we have with his business holdings and his family's business holdings," Noble said Wednesday.
It was later determined that Trump had used his @POTUS to retweet the Nordstrom slam.
"If he was any other government employee, this would be illegal," Noble said.
He was referring to a law that exempts the president from conflict of interest laws. But Noble said that for Trump, the principle of the conflict of interest rule should still apply.
