Donald Trump’s long-awaited announcement on how he intends to separate his business conflicts from his presidential responsibilities has been postponed until January, though a late-night tweet hinted at at least one new detail.
Last week, Trump said his company would make “no new deals” during his time in office.
In a series of posts, Trump wrote: “Even though I am not mandated by law to do so, I will be leaving my businesses before January 20th so that I can focus full time on the presidency. Two of my children, Don and Eric, plus executives, will manage them. No new deals will be done during my term(s) in office.”
In a third tweet, Trump affirmed that he intended to hold a fresh conference on his financial conflicts at a later date. He wrote: ”I will hold a press conference in the near future to discuss the business, Cabinet picks and all other topics of interest. Busy times!”
Trump has not formally taken questions from a group of reporters since 27 July.
