US President-elect on Wednesday said he will be "leaving his business" to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest while in the White House, insisting he was not legally bound to do so.

In a series of Tweets, Trump said he would unveil his plans at a December 15 news conference in New York with his children.

He said he would "discuss the fact that I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE GREAT AGAIN!"

"While I am not mandated to do this under the law, I feel it is visually important, as President, to in no way have a conflict of interest with my various businesses.
