This was supposed to be the week of a long-awaited announcement from President-elect Trump about how he’s going to handle potential business conflicts. But the Thursday press conference Trump promised is now on hold. His transition team now says that’ll have to wait until January. We know from his tweets Monday night that Trump plans to hand business management over to his adult sons and an executive team.

Trump also tweeted that “no new deals will be done” during his presidency, a phrase that raises more questions than it answers.
