Trump made a lot of news with his first press conference since the election.

If his press conferences are going to be like this going forward then the media will have no shortage of things to talk about.

Today he bashed Hillary, called CNN “fake news”, announced his pick for VA Secretary, and let us know when he would choose a Supreme Court nominee.

On top of all that, an announcement was made about his hotels that turned some heads.

From The Daily Caller:

An attorney for President-elect Donald Trump said at a press conference Wednesday that profits from foreign governments at Trump Organization hotels will be donated to the United States Treasury.

Trump’s attorney Sheri Dillon addressed the emoluments clause of the Constitution which prohibits anyone holding office from receiving a gift from “any King, Prince, or foreign State.”

She said that the Constitution doesn’t require Trump to change anything to comply with this clause but “just like with conflicts of interests, he wants to do more than what the constitution requires.”

“President-elect Trump decided and we are announcing today he’ll voluntarily donate all profits from foreign government payments made to his hotels to the United States Treasury. This way, it is the American people who will profit,” Dillon said.

Solid move.

Trump is taking major steps to totally distance himself from his company.

He made several announcements about how he is cutting ties.

Clearly, he is more concerned about conflicts of interest than the person he ran for president against.
