Trump says execs will run business with kids
WASHINGTON - President-elect Donald Trump is pushing back against charges that his businesses create a conflict of interest when he takes control of the White House, saying his "executives will run it with my children."
Trump tells "Fox News Sunday" that he will "have nothing to do with management."
Trump has said he will leave his businesses and is planning a news conference on Thursday to outline how he will separate himself. But his transition team has not yet said what the structure would look like.
Trump says in the interview that he turned down "seven deals with one big player" last week because he thought it could be "perceived as a conflict of interest."
