WASHINGTON -- President-elect Donald Trump said that he will be leaving his businesses in order to focus on running country. 

In a series of tweets, the Republican said that although he isn't mandated to leave his ventures under law, he feels it's important to do so. 

He also said that legal documents are being crafted to make sure he is "completely out of business operations."

A news conference is being planned for December 15, where the President-elect will appear with his children to talk more about this.
