US President-elect Donald Trump said he will hold a press conference on December 15 where he will elaborate on leaving his business to fully focus on running the country.
On November 8, Trump won the US presidential election by gaining a major electoral lead over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The inauguration of the US president-elect will take place on January 20
“I will be holding a major news conference in New York City with my children on December 15 to discuss the fact that I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! While I am not mandated to do this under the law, I feel it is visually important, as President, to in no way have a conflict of interest with my various businesses,” Trump wrote on his Twitter account. “Hence, legal documents are being crafted which take me completely out of business operations. The Presidency is a far more important task,” he added.
Hence, legal documents are being crafted which take me completely out of business operations. The Presidency is a far more important task!
