(UDHAYAM, UNITED STATES) – United States (US) President-elect Donald Trump says he is handing over his business empire to his sons, Donald Jr and Eric.
He told a news conference he had formally given “complete and total” control to them in a bid to avoid conflicts of interest.
Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Sheri Dillon said the President-elect had “isolated” himself from his businesses.
But the Office of Government Ethics said Mr. Trump’s plan didn’t “meet the standards” of Former Presidents.
The organisation’s Director Walter Shaub said the office’s primary recommendation was that Mr. Trump “divest his conflicting assets”.
