Donald Trump on Wednesday morning claimed he will formally leave the Trump Organization, but offered no details on how the separation will work, who will be in charge or whether conflicts of interest can be fully avoided.

“Legal documents are being crafted which take me completely out of business operations,” he wrote on Twitter. “The President is a far more important task.”

Trump TRData LogoTINY wrote he will hold a news conference on the subject on December 15 with his children. He also claimed that he is leaving the company because it is “visually important” to not have conflicts of interest, but wouldn’t say whether he will put his children in charge.

Trump has previously said he plans to do so, but the move could create conflicts of interest: his three oldest children, Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric, are reportedly close advisors and also serve on his presidential transition team.
