President-elect Donald Trumps businesses provide an unprecedented opportunity for conflicts of interest and even corruption.
And he just canceled the news conference where he was supposed to tell Americans how hed deal with them.
On November 30, Trump said that hed announce his plans for the Trump Organization, his sprawling business empire, on December 15, promising he would be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
Now that press conference has been canceled, according to Bloomberg Politics Kevin Cirilli, Caleb Melby, and Ben Brody. Unnamed officials in the Trump campaign told Bloomberg that the president-elect had been too busy picking his Cabinet and wanted more time.
Skipping the December 15 event, though, also means that Trump who has given interviews to 60 Minutes, Fox News, and the New York Times, but hasnt held a press conference since his election wont have to answer questions about the extent of his conflicts of interest before the members of the Electoral College are to cast the votes that will technically make him president on December 19.

So what, Vox????
I heard Vox is a liberal site. This sounds like liberal spin; as if we expect a president elect to have pressers and give info to the electors before the electoral college meets.
Give the story’s author some PlayDoh crayons, and a pacifier. It’ll be OK.
Liberals are complaining Trump is rich???
Voters don’t care. Every one knows The Donald is a billionaire.
Oh no how could he do this. This how the media acted when obama was elected in 08, and then contrast how they are now with Trump, and they say they are not biased!!!!!!!!1
They are worse than Politico.
Preibus announced there would be changes in the presidential press conferences...
The lib’s are scared to death....
Of what, exactly, does this conflict consist? Real estate holdings might constitute a conflict in certain instances, but listening to her, you’d think it’s a glaring, accomplished fact right now. “Is he averting war with Russia just to salvage his casinos? In that case, better to have the war, because then there’d be no conflict.”
Trump should schedule it and cancel it a few more times over the next few weeks.
George Washington was not required to give up his farm...His real estate holdings weren’t a conflict...
If one wonders where folks who really do not have any measurable horsepower end up working, look to the press.
Or at your local democrat or studies professor.
He doesnt need press conferences. Just do a video message.
Washington did not end his trade with foreign agents either, the tobacco and liquor trade. The way the press is barking about Trump, you would think he had a couple lemonade stands that he could shutter at a moments notice.
People who actually earn their fortunes are so yucky.
Lol, as I suspected all along, Trump never did release his tax returns, and I’m beginning to suspect he’s not going to fully divest from his businesses either.
I am so pleased that we finally elected a real man. He will likely be one of the greatest presidents in the history of our country.....and he will be our president for 8 years.
President elect Trump will be president for all Americans, but the libs can all eat s..t and die for all I care.
Exactly. I don’t think he should EVER give a press conference to these morons. These jerks are a true enemy of this country and they need to be treated as such. Not a single press conference for the next 8 years would be fine with me.
Keep ‘em guessing! Love this guy!!!
