President-elect Donald Trump has canceled plans to hold a press conference this week to discuss how intends to handle his businesses when taking over the White House, Bloomberg News reported Monday. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks confirmed to CNN that the “announcement” was being rescheduled for next month.

Unnamed Trump transition team officials told Bloomberg the press conference, originally scheduled for Thursday, was being nixed because Trump needed more time due to the attention he has had to give to filling his cabinet. They said that some sort of announcement would still be made before Inauguration Day January 20, according to Bloomgberg

Trump was expected to address how he would address the conflict-of-interests his businesses could present, which has prompted concerns from Democrats and Republicans alike.
