In a press release, Trump said the foundation has done good work, but he wants to "avoid even the appearance of any conflict with my role as President."

"I am very proud of the money that has been raised for many organizations in need, and I am also very proud of the fact that the Foundation has operated at essentially no cost for decades, with 100 percent of the money going to charity," the statement said.
