President-elect Donald Trump was supposed to hold a press conference on Thursday — his first as president-elect — to explain how he plans to separate himself from his business interests while in office. But he's now canceled it, and tweeted he'll hold one "in the near future."

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks with NPR senior business editor Marilyn Geewax (@geewaxnpr) about how, with less than six weeks to go until his inauguration, Trump has done little to clarify how he'll avoid major conflicts of interest around the world as president.

This segment aired on December 13, 2016.
