Trump: 'No New Deals Will Be Done' By My Business While I'm President

Evan Vucci

After postponing a press conference to discuss how he will approach his business when he takes office as president, Donald Trump on Monday evening tweeted a few details about how he will leave his companies.

He said that his two oldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump will manage the companies and will make "no new deals" while Trump is in office.

Trump had scheduled a press conference for this week to discuss his plans for avoiding conflicts of interest while president. However, Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said on Monday that Trump has postponed that press conference until January. Trump delayed the press conference because he needed more time due to the effort he has made to nominate cabinet picks, Bloomberg News reported.
