WASHINGTON (NBC News) – President-elect Donald Trump will hold a press conference on December 15th to detail his plan to remove himself from his businesses in order to avoid conflicts of interest.
“The presidency is a far more important task,” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.
The Trump transition team also confirmed two more cabinet picks, Goldman Sachs alum and campaign finance chair Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary and billionaire Wilbur Ross as Commerce Secretary.
There are also reports that former Alaska Governer Sarah Palin is angling for Secretary of Veterans Affairs.
Palin son-in-law Dakota Meyer, a Medal of Honor recipient married to daughter Bristol, posted his appeal on Facebook, including a video that makes a glossy pitch for Palin as an advocate for America’s veterans.
