‘Not a Big Deal’: Trump Addresses Plans to Deal With His Business Conflicts

President-elect Donald Trump addressed the issue of his business conflicts in brief comments to reporters outside Mar-a-Lago tonight.

Trump said, “It’s a very routine thing, it’s not a big deal, you people are making that a big deal.”

He pointed out that everyone knew about the scope of his businesses when he ran, adding that he’ll be holding a presser “some time in early January.”

Trump briefly touched upon his call with President Obama today and how both their staffs have been cordial to each other.

Trump also weighed in on potential Russian sanctions––”I think we oughta get on with our lives, I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly.”––and Israel.
