Donald Trump says he will be leaving his business empire so he can concentrate on being the president.
Trump made the announcement in a series of tweets Wednesday morning. He said, in part, "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 also said although he isn't legally required to completely separate himself from The Trump Organization, he feels it is "visually important" to avoid conflicts of interest when he takes office.
