WASHINGTON - Donald Trump says he's leaving his "great business" so he can focus on being the nation's 45th president.

Trump tweeted early Wednesday that legal documents are being crafted to "take me completely out of business operations," adding, "the presidency is a far more important task!"

Trump had been under criticism for exposing himself to potential conflicts if he kept a role in his global business while being president.

Donald Trump's senior adviser says his adult children are expected to take more control of his business empire as the president-elect works to prevent conflicts of interest before he takes office.

Trump says he'll hold a news conference with his children on the subject on Dec. 15.
