Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on Tuesday said President-elect Donald Trump is now slated to address what he plans to do with his business empire in the new year, after Mr. Trump had originally announced a Dec. 15 news conference to do so.

“This isn’t easy stuff, and so what President-elect Trump is doing with a lot of lawyers and a lot of people involved is making sure that all government ethics are followed, that the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed,” Mr. Priebus said on “Fox and Friends.”

“That’s all this is, and it’s just going to take a little time, but we’re going to get it right,” he said.

Mr. Trump hinted at some general plans in a series of tweets Monday evening.

“Even though I am not mandated by law to do so, I will be leaving my busineses
before January 20th so that I can focus full time on the……Presidency. Two of my children, Don and Eric, plus executives, will manage them. No new deals will be done during my term(s) in office,” he tweeted.

“I will hold a press conference in the near future to discuss the business, Cabinet picks and all other topics of interest. Busy times!” Mr. Trump also tweeted.
