President-Elect Trump Says He'll Leave Business To Avoid Conflicts Of Interests

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK -

In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, Donald Trump said he’ll leave his businesses to focus on running the country and avoid conflicts of interest. 

The president-elect also tweeted that the legal documents to separate him from his businesses are being drafted now. 

He also announced he’ll hold a news conference about his decision on December 15th.

Mr. Trump’s Twitter announcement comes as more questions have been raised about potential conflicts of interest -- given the Constitution’s emoluments clause -- and also clear conflicts of interest. 

At least one watchdog group, the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), has already stated its skepticism about the president-elect’s Wednesday announcement. 

Just last week, the president-elect dismissed the potential conflicts of interest his business empire could pose to his presidency.
