The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — David Sherfin­ski

In­com­ing White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Pres­i­den­t­elect Don­ald Trump is now slated to ad­dress what he plans to do with his busi­ness em­pire in the new year, af­ter Mr. Trump had orig­i­nally an­nounced a Dec. 15 news con­fer­ence to do so.

“This isn’t easy stuff, and so what Pres­i­dent-elect Trump is do­ing with a lot of lawyers and a lot of peo­ple in­volved is mak­ing sure that all gov­ern­ment ethics are fol­lowed, that the i’s are dot­ted and the t’s are crossed,” Mr. Priebus said.

“That’s all this is … we’re go­ing to get it right,” he said Tues­day on “Fox & Friends.”

Mr. Trump hinted at his gen­eral plans Mon­day night on Twit­ter.

“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,” he tweeted.
