Donald Trump said Monday night that his sons Eric and Donald Jr. would run his sprawling network of businesses after his Jan. 20 inauguration, but would do “no new deals” during his presidency.
“I will hold a press conference in the near future to discuss the business, Cabinet picks and all other topics of interest,” the president-elect wrote on Twitter. “Busy times!”
A series of Trump tweets Monday night made clear that his daughter, Ivanka, also planned to step away from the business, but offered no details. Her husband, Jared Kushner, was a top advisor to Trump during the presidential campaign and is likely to play a senior, but as yet undefined, role at the White House.
