about those charities
Since Donald Trump won the presidency last month, the question of how his business dealings would affect his ability to run the government has lingered. Trump initially pledged to place his business interests in the hands of his adult children in the form of a blind trust, saying he would leave his business "in total" to avoid perceived conflicts of interest. But his so-called "blind trust" has been seen participating in transition efforts, and Trump promptly postponed a news conference where he promised to explain the situation. His spokesman Jason Miller explained the president-elect delayed his announcement because the details are "complex" and Trump "wants to get it right"; Trump just two hours prior had skewered the media for making the issue of his business entanglements sound complex "when it actually isn't!"
Then, on Tuesday morning, it was reported that Trump's adult sons were offering access to the president-elect through a new nonprofit — created less than a week ago — called the Opening Day Foundation. This prompted Associated Press reporter Julie Pace to ask Miller on a conference call with press Tuesday whether Trump had explained to his team what the policy that governs his children's involvement in charity work would be:
Weirdly, in case you were curious, that press conference has yet to be rescheduled. Trump takes the oath of office in 31 days.
