(Newser) – For those waiting for Donald Trump to unveil on Thursday his plans about how he will step away from his business empire so that he can run the American one, well, that press conference has now been kicked into the new year, reports Bloomberg, citing insiders who say that the president-elect has been too busy making Cabinet picks to adequately attend to the matter of distancing himself from ties to some 500 companies in 20 countries. "This isn't exactly easy stuff," an insider tells CNN of the process. In the month and change since the election, Trump has yet to hold a news conference; he will not have done so before the Electoral College meets next week. (Meanwhile, stay tuned: Trump tweeted that his SecState announcement is coming Tuesday morning.)
