Donald Trump has postponed a planned news conference regarding his plans to disentangle himself from his business dealings, including his interest in the upcoming season of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”

The delay means that the Electoral College will vote  before Trump provides any information about how he plans to resolve his business conflicts.

“The announcement has been rescheduled for next month,” Trump’s spokesperson Hope Hicks told TheWrap.

Last Month, Trump announced he would hold a “major news conference” on Dec. 15 “to discuss the fact that I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country.”

A senior Trump transition official told Bloomberg News on Monday that Trump “wants more time because he’s been occupied with filling out his cabinet and top administration posts.”

Last week, Variety reported that Trump will remain as executive producer on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” which is returning Jan. 2 after a two-year hiatus with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The Electoral College is set to meet on December 19.
