Donald trump has announced that he’d be leaving his business empire before taking on the presidency

President-elect Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday he is leaving his multi-million dollar businesses to focus on being president – a change from comments he’s made in the past about being able to juggle both.

“I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to make America great again,” he said in a series of early morning tweets. “While I am not mandated to do this under the law, I feel it is visually important, as president, to in no way have a conflict of interest with my various businesses.”

Trump said legal documents were being drafted that would take him “completely out of business operations” and added that the presidency is “a far more important task!”
