President-elect Donald Trump launched a series of Tweets Wednesday morning indicating that he plans on leaving his business behind as he transitions to the White House.

The President-elect’s vast business dealings have been a point of controversy, with many speculating that they could create a conflict of interest.

Trump maintains that there is nothing illegal about holding onto his business operations as president.

The President-elect – who made a name for himself in real estate and development – owns or holds a position in more than 500 companies, according to CNN.

Among those are companies that have conducted business in Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.

Trump indicated that he will hold a press conference with his family in New York City on Wednesday to announce the move.
